Zetec NDT PaintBrush

NDT PaintBrush by Zetec. An evolution in the field of inspection solutions for the detection of wall-thickness reductions due to corrosion, abrasion or erosion. Thanks to NDT PaintBrush, you can make the right decisions and leave uncertainty behind.

Zetec NDT PaintBrush has won the 2016 Frost and Sullivan award for new NDT product innovation!

Frost & Sullivan recognizes Zetec NDT PaintBrush Scanner with the 2016 Global Frost & Sullivan Award for New Product Innovation. Zetec has set a new market benchmark with the Paintbrush. Coupled with the industry-leading TOPAZ® ultrasonic instrument family and UltraVision® software, Zetec’s NDT Paintbrush is the best solution available for corrosion and wall-thickness mapping.

NDT PaintBrush is compatible with the TOPAZ, using UltraVision 3.7R1 and up.

Product Information


Agile on plates

Real-time onboard TOPAZ data position calculation allows moving freely on any 2D surface without any external mechanical constraint. Thanks to its magnetic, side-by-side wheels, NDT PaintBrush solution is a stable instrument that will stick firmly and that easily adapts to any magnetic surface. When using composite dedicated wheels, NDT PaintBrush becomes the ideal solution for the inspection of non-magnetic surfaces.

Agile on pipes

NDT PaintBrush’s size and ergonomics make it the perfect pipe inspection tool. The device can inspect on curved surfaces and on pipes having a diameter as small as 4 inches. UltraVision™ analysis tools complete the solution allowing for data analysis and evaluation either online during inspection or as post-processing data analysis.

See the location, see the orientation

Seeing the location of the probe and data in real time during inspection ensures that the inspection process is performed well covering all the target area. Seeing the indications in real time allows you to properly assess the inspection process.

Optimum POD: Find corrosion pittings

Detects small wall-thickness losses comparable to 1.6 mm (0.06 in.) round bottom holes with coverage from 2 mm (0.07 in.) up to 25 mm (1 in.), giving a higher detection probability.

Never miss an area

NDT PaintBrush is easy to use and requires minimum training while incorporating advanced high-performance technology. Don’t miss anything and rest assured that the inspection is properly performed.

Imaging of scanned area

The device makes it easy to monitor the state and evolution of the inspected part. Get imaging of scanned area as well as its stitching capabilities.

Export to excel

Easy exporting to Excel equals gain in productivity. You can export data to CSV files for extended compatibility with external software.

Extensive statistical data

NDT PaintBrush solution provides valuable onboard statistics that are easy to understand and analyze.

3D Plotting

Corrosion is easily identifiable with UltraVision 3D—get 3D plotting for outstanding redenring of corrosion data on specimen parts. The tool can specify the depth of the corrosion. Therefore you know when action must be taken. Requires UltraVision 3D license on an external computer.



A new dedicated and intuitive interface for configuring your NDT PaintBrush scanner is included in UltraVision 3.7R1 Touch for TOPAZ.

This interface allows adjusting the positioning and references for the inspection by simply a few clicks on TOPAZ screen.


The agility of NDT PaintBrush combined with the real time data visualization optimizes and simplifies the inspection process.

Probe Cursor2


A dedicated reporting feature was added to present data from corrosion mapping applications in the reporting process.

This tool includes statistical measurement such as histogram information on the inspection reporting.


When inspecting a large surface, it is sometime useful to separate the inspection job in smaller sections for an easier approach.

Thanks to the new Data Stitching feature, there smaller sections can be easily reconstructed into one consolidated data file.

Data Stitching function allows adjusting the position of the data sections and correcting for angular misalignments.

C-Scan Stitching


The new Auto TCG calibration allows the user to create multiple TCG points all at once. Using only one gate long enough to cover all reflectors, it is now possible to sweep through all of them and create all the TCG points in one step.


A new Data Export tool allows exporting inspection data into .txt files that can be used for further processing.
