A solution was sought to monitor erosion caused by ore tailings from a mining operation in South America. The subsequent wall-loss has the potential to cause failures and loss of containment, resulting in lost productivity, and damage to nearby population and environment.
Having solutions that can produce wall thickness readings that are far more frequently than what traditional manual inspection can offer puts decision making capability on par with process change as demand is placed on the asset and leads to improved profitability and enhanced safety.

Ionix high-temperature TOFD transducers, with integrated wedges, are suitable for weld inspections at continuous elevated temperatures up to 350 °C. Here, the transducers with integrated wedges are mounted on to a modified EddyFi Lyncs scanner for high-temperature encoding, with high-temperature couplant, connected to
commercially available Mantis UT set, and a carbon steel pipe weld inspected at 200 °C for weld root corrosion.
Ultrasonic time-of-flight diffraction (TOFD) is a popular method widely used in petrochemical, energy and other industries for the in-service detection and characterisation of welds defects such as root corrosion, porosity, inclusions, and cracks. This latest application note explores Time-of-flight diffraction on carbon steel welded plate up to 240 °C.
Ionix was welcomed back to Houston to connect with new and existing friends as well as conduct our high temperature masterclass aimed at giving current Ultrasonic NDT Technicians the training and confidence required to perform high temperature measurements using Ionix true high temperature transducers based on the award winning HotSense™ platform.
A demonstration of the Ionix high-temperature TOFD transducers, with integrated wedges, for their suitability for weld inspection at elevated temperatures up to 240 °C is shown here. The wedges are mounted on to a modified EddyFi Lyncs scanner for high-temperature
encoding, with high-temperature couplant, connected to commercially available UT sets from EddyFi and
