Designed for performing inspections of hot assets

Sensor Networks, Inc., a Pennsylvania, USA-based leader in critical asset management applications, introduced a line of high-temperature UT transducers designed specifically for operation at temperatures of up to 200° C (392° F).

The company said performing inspections of “hot assets” requires transducers that are engineered with materials capable of transitioning to, and operating at, the higher temperatures associated with on-line oil & gas and power generation applications. SNI has developed and extensively tested, a family of PAUT arrays and wedges, TOFD transducers/wedges and dual linear arrays capable of operating at these 200-deg C. (392° F) continuous metal surface temperatures.

SNI has confirmed that changes in the wedge’s resultant refracted angle, due to temperature, are predictable and can be managed and compensated for in the calibration process. These new transducer designs protect the users’ investment in the various probes while simultaneously realizing any flaws within the aforementioned high-temperature assets, the company said.
