Since the early 1970s – in those days still under the umbrella of Dutch Rail - we have been successful service providers in the area of basic security track inspection. Already in 1976 we started with the interruption-free track inspection with our track inspection vehicle UST 76, which became known very rapidly in many countries.

New ultrasonic probes in combination with improved ultrasonic probe carriers allow an examination of the rails in all safety-relevant areas of the rail profile in rails and turnouts, with the exception of the frog.

Eddy Current
The trains equipped with 16 channel Eddy Current systems, are able to cover the complete running surface of the rail. EURAILSCOUT is therefore capable, of not only detecting head checks at the gauge corner, but also other rolling contact fatigue defects. The inspection area is compliant with the new extended inspection area described in prEn16729-2. It is an improved insight in asset status.

Manual measurement
EURAILSCOUT also provides ultrasonic hand measurement services, either for track inspection or to verify suspects determined by a measuring train. Our experts are trained and experienced to work according to the requirements, as defined by the customer.

Our qualified employees ensure consistently high quality through constant advanced training and cover all certification levels in ultrasonic testing methods, eddy current and visual inspection pursuant to EN 9712 and/or ASNT.
