High Temperature Non-Intrusive Monitoring
Axess offers high temperature, non-intrusive wall thickness solutions for in-service corrosion and erosion monitoring. The system compromises of high temperature, ultrasonic transducers, permanently mounted to process pipework, vessels and other structures coupled with a range of instrumentation options from spot reading, through to online, real-time wireless monitoring using industry standard WirelessHART protocol.
Permanent installation can be completed in minutes, under normal plant operating conditions on pipework up to 550°C / 1,022°F surface temperature using the purpose-built clamping system. Dry coupling can withstand aggressive thermal cycling reducing maintenance requirements and transducers can be calibrated online using the integrated delay line. The transducers have a center frequency of 3.25MHz and are compatible with 2.25MHz and 5MHz flaw detector / UT hardware.
