Re: measuring paper
: There is some good information available in regards to your paper testing project:
: I am referring to the publications from M. Luukkala:
: 1) M. Luukkala, "Tenscan, an Acoustic NDE Device to Measure Tension in a Moving Paper Web" in 1990 Rev.Prog.in QNDE, D.O. Thompson and D.E. Chementi eds. (plenum, New York, 1990) pp.1987-1981
: 2) M.Luuukkala, P. Heikkila and J. Surakka: "Plate wave resonance- a contactless test method. Ultrasonics, October 1971. Editors are the Department of Technical Physics, Helsinki & Universtity of Technology, Otamiemi, Finland
: (Remark: VERY IMPORTANT PAPER)
: 3) M. Luukkala and P. Merilainen: "Metal Plate testing using airborn ultrasound.
: 4) Department of Physics, University of Helsinki, Finland 11 April 1973.
: 5) In regards to further references, transducer types and applications, you may like to look at:
: "NDE Applications of Air-Coupled Ultrasonic Transducers" W.A. Grandia and C.M. Fortunko. IEEE Ultrasonics, Ferroelectrics, and FrequencyControl. Novenber 7 - 10, 1995.
: 1995 IEE International Ultrasonic Symposium, Seattle, Washington.

: At our laboratory: QMI Inc. 919 Sunset Drive, Copsta Mesa, CA 92627 USA., we have developed an air-coupled ultrasonic instrument: SONDA-007. It can operate at discrete toneburst mode (200kHz, 400 kHz and 1 MHz). This device may be used to launch platewaves into paper sheet and detectr the through transmitted signals. It is possible to transmit signals over a fairly long distance.
: If you have trouble finding the papers, please let me know and I can arrange for copies.
: Wish you success with your project.
: W. Grandia P.E.
: President QMI Inc.

NEW! The PragmaPro Instrument Platform

The PragmaPro is based on a modular cartridge technology and supports various NDT instrument modal
...
ities such as UT, PAUT, ECT and many more. This new platform is based on a machined, powder-coated aluminum frame for shock-proofness, best sealing qualities and maximum heat dissipation. This is practical to extend the outdoor temperature range and/or to extend the power injected in the transducers. The PragmaPro is aiming at a very wide range of applications, such as weld scanning, corrosion mapping and composite testing.

ISAFE3 Intrinsically Safe Sensor System

ISAFE3 intrinsically safe sensor system of Vallen Systeme is especially targeted at the petrochemica
...
l - as well as oil and gas transportation industry. The sensor system is designed for permanent monitoring or periodic inspection tasks. Sensors are available for different AE-frequency ranges optimized for corrosion and fatigue crack detection and other applications. The ISAFE 3 sensor system consists of an AE-sensor (model ISAS3) certified according to ATEX/IEC for installation in zone 0, gas group IIC, IP68, 20 to +60 °C, and a signal isolator (model SISO3) certified for installation in zone 2. An ISAS3 sensor can be mounted in atmosphere or submerged, e.g. in water or crude oil. It is supported by mounting tools for temporary (magnets) or permanent (welded) installation. ISAFE3 supports automatic sensor coupling test and can be used with any AE signal processor supporting 28V supply at 90 mA peak, e.g. Vallen Systeme ASIP-2/A.
