EMAT in High temp Zr

I am interested in measuring the thickness, up to about 1", in hot zirconium (up to 400C). Is this possible?

Re: EMAT in High temp Zr
I have not heard of anyone using an EMAT on Zirconium; I dont think it is conductive enough. I could be wrong though ... anyone else heard of EMATs in this application?

(The temperature is probably less of an issue)

Depending on its attenuation you could use a laser-laser system, but that will cost lots of monies.

Mark.

Re: EMAT in High temp Zr
I shall try to find something more in the literature.
About UT I read

Zirkon und Hafnium für die Kerntechnik Interesse gefunden. Sie werden bereits bei der Herstellung von Gussblock an geprüft. Zirkonblöcke mit 0,3 m Durchmesser und über 1 m Länge prüft man an der mechanisch bearbeiteten Oberfläche von Hand bei 1 MHz, am besten mit SE-Prüfköpfen, um auch Fehler nahe der Oberfläche zu finden von Hand bei 1 MHz [siehe Fink, E. W.; Ultrasonic testing as a Method of determining variables in processing Zircalloy and Hafnium. Symposium NDT of the nuclear Energy, ASTM spec. Tech. Publ. No. 223 [1958] 175-179; und Wood, F.

Re: EMAT in High temp Zr
Hi, David,

Why dont you try with Radiographic method?

Even though I dont have experience with Zircoium, it seems to be an easy task for radiographic thickness gauge.

By the way, I checked the electrical conductivity of zirconium, 4~5% IACS at room temp.
