A collaborative project, between Ionix Advanced Technologies Ltd, TWI Ltd, Precision Acoustics Ltd (PAL) and University of Sheffield (UoS), towards developing and manufacturing radiation resilient ultrasonic sensors (reDRESS) has been completed with high praise from the project’s funding body, InnovateUK.
Low Capex access to monitoring: minimise operational risk and maximise productivity with enhanced asset intelligence
Complete fixed-point ultrasonic thickness measurement solution for use with standard UT gauges and flaw detectors. The lowest cost entry point for intrinsically safe, non-invasive corrosion and erosion in-service monitoring. Ideal for reducing Capex across applications in refining, oil & gas, energy, nuclear and process sectors.
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.
HotSense are the sensors of choice for in-service gas void detection and monitoring in nuclear energy
Ionix HotSense sensors have been deployed for gas void monitoring in leading US nuclear power stations to increase safety by minimising exposure of workers to hazardous locations and reducing radiation dose.
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.
Read our article in Hydrocarbon Engineering which provides a review and analysis of how online ultrasonic integrity and corrosion monitoring technology, including our partner HotSenseTM powered systems, can provide you with the robust and reliable data that you need to make critical decisions which maximise productivity and safety.
Based on the key factors that we identified in the review, we are able to recommend a range of HotSenseTM powered systems to meet the demands and requirements of your plant, unit or process.

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.
Ionix Advanced Technologies (Leeds, UK) and Inductosense (Bristol, UK) is proud to announce the release of its latest collaboration for Ultrasonic Corrosion / Erosion Trending: “TRND.”
