The Lixi Profiler utilizes a Gadolinium-153 isotope, engineered detection technology and proprietary software to provide the nondestructive testing (NDT) community with a unique tool for pipe inspection. It is hand-held, easy to learn, and simple to operate. The unique combination of technology and packaging found in the Profiler allows you to perform your pipe inspection work like never before. No costly and messy removal and replacement of insulation, no need to cut a test hole and clean and prep the pipe surface - the Profiler is used with the insulation in place. No time and expense spent dealing with film - results for the Profiler are available immediately. No roping off the work area for radiation safety - the Profiler utilizes Gadolinium 153, a relatively low energy source. No wondering if the spot tests you ran caught the problem - the Profiler can be used on all of the pipe, not just in spot areas. The Profiler allows you to do the job faster, more completely, and more cost-effectively than any other method. Time is money.
