Recently completed independent testing has shown the stability of HotSense™ transducers to radiation levels associated with nuclear plant operating environments.
This builds on the inherent temperature withstand of HotSense™ where the probes have been validated for operation in the range -55 °C (-67 °F) up to +550 °C (1020 °F).
These properties make HotSense™ ultrasonic transducers ideal for Wall Thickness and Gas Void measurements for use in continuous monitoring applications across nuclear and energy sectors.
