Safer high-temperature inspections with Proceq UT8000 and Ionix HS582 HT probes – ASNT Saudi Arabia Section Webinar
Ionix HotSense™ has been successfully deployed with a CALIPERAY wireless system and a field communication kit to monitor erosion rates in a remote upstream Shell facility as an alternative to manual inspection with X-ray RT profiling.
Ionix HotSense™ for measurements through TSA for applications in Oil & Gas, Energy and Process Control
HotSense ultrasonic sensors are the only fully intrinsically safe ultrasonic sensors which can be used to make thickness measurements through thermally sprayed aluminium (TSA) coatings at high or low temperatures.
Ionix HotSense™ Sensors Preferred for Major Continuous High-Temperature Wall Thickness Monitoring System
Ionix sensors have been deployed in a key installation of automated in-service corrosion monitoring of multiple refinery process units at a major oil company, as part of a refinery digitalisation strategy. The deployment covered process units spread over a 2 km2 area and included wall thickness monitoring locations at process conditions of over 200 °C and as high as 520 °C. Installation was executed during normal production without a shutdown of any of the process units.
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 HotSenseTM 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.
At only 48mm tall, the Ionix HotSenseᵀᴹ high-temperature, thickness monitoring transducers and deployment system fit perfectly under insulation and weatherproofing to ensure the integrity of your pipelines.
A number of new Corrosion Monitoring techniques and methods are emerging allowing in-service inspection or corrosion monitoring with installed sensors looking at wall thickness. They are destined to play an important role in the development of corrosion management in the refinery environment.
