NDT Ultrasonic Device Question

I am developing a simple remote switch that will communicate with it's receive through a short (one metre) length of stainless steel. The application cannot use wires or RF energy. In creating a bench-top system to use for characterizing the structure (it has a few joints with metal-metal contact but is otherwise a very clean 2" diameter stainless tube), I'd need to find a device that will generate acoustic pulses in the sub-150 kHz range. I thought of NDT devices for flaw detection in concrete, etc - not sure as I'm unfamiliar with this equipment. Any suggestions on a better approach or sources of equipment that will do this job for me?

What is the remote switch sensing at the end of the stainless tube? A little more information may help us to suggest a means of communication.

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.
