New Zetec Topaz32 Ultrasonic Instrument Redefines Inspection Performance and Productivity

2X Faster and More Powerful Than Previous Versions

Snoqualmie, WA — Zetec®, Inc. introduces the New Topaz®32, a fully integrated phased array ultrasonic instrument for nondestructive testing (NDT) projects. Optimally designed for Oil & Gas, Power Generation, Manufacturing and Transportation applications, the Zetec Topaz32 ultrasonic instrument boosts productivity, reduces job time duration and can lower total cost of ownership, making it a smart investment.

Boost Inspection Productivity
Since its introduction in 2013, the award-winning Topaz ultrasonic instrument has always stood for portable productivity. Now, the new Topaz32 takes it to the next level. An advanced on-board computer substantially improves the power of the instrument reducing typical processing times by up to 50% at setup creation, calibration or reporting. The ultra-bright touchscreen is crystal clear whether indoors or outside, and getting started couldn’t be easier — users interact just like they would with a smartphone or a tablet. Configuration is simple as well — connect any Zetec scanner or accessory such as a probe to the Topaz32 and it will automatically recognize and preconfigure accordingly, saving valuable time and resources.

Reduce Analysis Time
When it comes to analysis, the Topaz32 ultrasonic instrument is truly revolutionary. Data acquisition speed is significantly improved, reducing time for processing and creating reports by up to 50% versus previous versions. Furthermore, sectorial and linear scanning combine to increase the covered inspection area while reducing scanning time.

Lower Total Cost of Ownership
With UltraVision® touch software embedded in the Topaz32, it’s the complete solution. 2D matrix array probe support is now included without the need of any external software. This fully-integrated and simplified approach can reduce the amount of equipment needed to perform an inspection. Plus, the rugged magnesium housing is long lasting and has no air intake making it ideal for harshest of environments.

“Since its launch in 2013, the award-winning Topaz has set the standard for portable Phased Array Ultrasound performance,” states Federico Zottig, Zetec Product Manager. “This next generation Topaz32 redefines inspection performance and productivity.” adds Zottig.
