Piping calibration block for UT

what is requirement for thickness and curvature for piping block?
Is it same as per non piping block mentioned in article 4

Up to 1 (25) 3/4 (19) or t 3/32 (2.5)
Over 1 (25) through 2 (50) 11/2 (38) or t 1/8 (3)
Over 2 (50) through 4 (100) 3 (75) or t 3/16 (5)
Over 4 (100) t ±1 (25) [Note (2)]

What is the code, standard or specification you are working to?
If it is ASME then what is the year of the edition you are to comply with?

In the 2017 edition of ASME V Areticle 4 the piping calibration block requirements are provided in
"T-434.3 Piping Calibration Blocks".
There you will read that reference is made to T-434.1.7 for the allowed curvatures and it specifically provides the tolerance of the thickness of the calibration block relative to the nominal thickness of the component being tested.

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.
