GE Hocking Locator 3S

GE Inspection Hocking Locator 3S Eddy Current Flaw Detector
Stock # 150622B
This is a extremely clean instrument, that looks like it has been rarely used. All buttons and dials function as they should and the screen is in great shape. The locator series is an inspectors favorite, as it is lightweight, with a small frame and large screen. The end result is inspection after inspection with little, to no fatigue. The screen is easily viewed indoors or out, and the unit is known for its easy, one-handed use. The lithium-Ion batteries used in the Hocking series are capable of operating the unit for more than 8 hours at a time. Take advantage of this low price and grab one of GE’s most advanced Eddy Current flaw detectors at an extremely reduced rate.

  • General Crack Detection – Locator 3s can be used with a wide range of probes to detect surface-breaking and sub surface cracks. Adapters are available, allowing you to use other manufacturers probes.
  • Conductivity Measurement – Locator 3s can measure the conductivity of metals. This can, among other things aid in the veri?cation of material hardness and in the identi?cation of materials as part of a quality control system.
  • Coating Thickness Measurement – This function can be used to measure non-conductive coatings such as paint, and is often used as a quality control measure in the surface coating industry.
  • Weld Inspection – Locator 3s can be used with Hocking s specially designed WeldScan probes to reliably and accurately test for cracks in welds.
  • Fastener Inspection – Metal around fasteners, such as those found on aircrafts, must be inspected regularly to ensure their material integrity. Locator 3s, coupled with the appropriate probe, can easily and quickly carry out such inspections.
  • Thread Inspection – Thread inspection is carried out in a range of industries, including aerospace, petrochemical, civil engineering and automotive. Locator 3s provides the ideal solution to ensure quality, safety and reliability.
