inspection is increasingly being recognized as a key area in which
there is a potential to make large cost savings by avoiding or
minimising plant shut-down. However, high temperature ultrasonic
inspection with conventional type piezoelectric probes is fraught with
difficulty as few such probes will survive extended continuous exposure
to temperatures above 200°C (390°F) and there are considerable problems in
related areas such as couplant selection and velocity and attenuation
variations with changing temperature.
KANDE has extensive experience in the development of probes and
instrumentation for high temperature applications (see our high
temperature products page) and we can offer advice and system design
consultancy for high temperature inspection applications from ambient
to 800°C (1470°F).
