non-intrusive ultrasonic sensors for corrosion/erosion monitoring

Metal Samples along with Sensor Networks Inc., offers the smartPIMS® product line with 2 different ultrasonic transducer types: dual-element and delay-line.

Each “sensor” type should be selected based largely on temperature range, number of point to be monitored and the severity of the expected metal loss.

monitor corrosion rate
resolution to 0.001” (0.025mm) • high-risk areas • historically problematic locations
 
   
monitor “low spots”
post-NDE screening of pits to monitor re-maining thickness • measures down to 0.040” (1.02mm)
 
   
replace/augment intrusive methods
validation of coupons, ER probes, etc.
 
   
reduce costs
reduce scaffolding and insulation removal/refitting for internal corrosion monitoring • more accurate/reliable data improving operations
 

  • Transducers available to withstand -22°F (-30°C ) to 932°F (500°C).
  • Maintains 1 mil (0.001” / 0.025mm) resolution and 0.040” (1mm) minimum wall thickness.
  • Sensors install buried or above-ground, temporarily or permanently.
  • ATEX, IECEx, UL/CSA and Japanese hazardous-area certifications.
