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.
A number of new technologies are emerging to enhance integrity testing and inspection using installed sensors to measure wall thickness and monitor corrosion rates. These new methods are destined to play an important role in the development of corrosion management in the refinery environment. However, it is important at the outset to recognise the potential benefits and limitations of installed ultrasonic corrosion sensors for thickness monitoring.
Enhance your measurement and monitoring capabilities with HotSenseTM – Ionix launch new high temperature capable ultrasound transducer
Ionix launch new high temperature capable ultrasound transducer. The new HotSenseTM product from Ionix is a 0-degree ultrasound transducer, designed for use in extreme environments from -40°C to +380°C, and capable of continuous thickness measurement.
Ionix Advanced Technologies Limited, a company specialising in high performance piezoelectric materials and devices, is pleased to announce that it has closed a further £2m funding round with backing from ParkWalk, IP Group plc, the University of Leeds and private sources.
As part of our continuing development, Ionix are proud to announce our Quality Management System is now certified to ISO9001:2015. This achievement coincides with the launch of a new HotSenseTM probe for continuous thickness monitoring applications, designed for use in extreme environments across a range of industries.
Ionix announced this month that it had received a funding award from the UK’s innovation agency, Innovate UK, to co-fund a project aimed to design, build, test and demonstrate a new prototype design of ultrasound transducer that can be used in high temperature environments.
Ionix has announced the appointment of Dr. David Astles as Chief Executive Officer. David Astles is a business leader with wide experience gained in Shell and latterly leading small company start-ups, and has a track-record of launching new products and technology in a wide range of industry sectors including chemical process, oil and gas, lubricants, mining and refining.
Ionix Advanced Technologies Limited announces further funding, new staff and space additions. They announced this month that it had received further funding from IP Group plc to continue the commercialisation of a range of sensors, actuators and transducer devices based on its novel high-temperature piezoelectric materials, used in NDT inspection and ultrasonic applications.
