Online-Wallthickness-Monitoring on hot tubes

I am interested in possibilities for permanent monitoring of wallthicknesses with ultrasonics.
A problem is that the carbonsteel-pipes are hot (200°C).

Re: Online-Wallthickness-Monitoring on hot tubes
We are working on a research programme in which we develop a wireless EMAT sensor for ultrasonic WT measurements.
The EMAT sensor should withstand 200 degrees celcius.
Some more info and preliminary results can be found at:

MUSE Mobile Ultrasonic Equipment

The MUSE, a portable ultrasonic imaging system, was developed for in-field inspections of light-weig
...
ht structures. The MUSE consists of a motor-driven manipulator, a water circulation system for the acoustic coupling and a portable ultrasonic flaw detector (USPC 3010). The MUSE provides images of internal defects (A-, B-,C- and D-scan).

OmniScan™ X3 flaw detector

The OmniScan X3 flaw detector is a complete phased array toolbox. Powerful tools, like total focus
...
ing method (TFM) images and advanced visualization capabilities, enable you to complete your inspection with greater confidence.

Conformable wedge transducer

The conformability is obtained with a flexible membrane filled with water between the transducer and
...
the inspected component. The coupling between the membrane and the component requires a small quantity of water or couplant. The conformable wedge combines the acoustic performance of immersion technique with good coupling and low attenuation.
