Explosion proof UT thickness gauges
Can anyone advise regarding the EX, Eex, Exd, Atex - (certified in any one of these) certified EXPLOSION PROOF Thickness gauges for use in offshore production platforms...Better if they have option to detect thickness thro coating

Re: Explosion proof UT thickness gauges We generally direct people towards Cygnus
Their "specialist" gauges seem to be well regarded, they have both underwater and explosion proof gauges. They measure through paint/coatings,
Obviously contact us at Sonatest for all your topside non-explosive thickness gauge requirements...

Re: Explosion proof UT thickness gauges The potential issue with any common ultrasonic thickness gage used in a combustable atmosphere is spark generation if the transducer cable breaks, or if you change transducers with the power on. Instruments can certainly comply as "explosion proof" under various codes, with the instrument itself not being a potential source of ignition. However I would suggest that you carefully check the details of the manufacturer's certification with respect to your operating environment and be aware of the spark potential should you accidentally break the transducer cable with the power on.

Ultrasonic tomograph for imaging of concrete structures А1040 MIRA
Applicable for concrete inspection allowing imaging of the internal
structure of objects from conc
rete, reinforced concrete, different
stones. The operation applies pulse-echo technique at one-side access
to the object. The instrument is feasible for concrete inspection for
searching conduct ducts, conduits, detection of foreign inclusions,
holes, honeycombing, cracks and other concrete defects.
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).
ScanMaster ultrasonic immersion systems are designed for high throughput, multi shift operation in a
n industrial or lab environment. These fully integrated systems provide various scanning configurations and incorporate conventional and phased arrays technologies to support diverse applications, such as inspection of disks, bars, shafts, billets and plates.
All of ScanMaster immersion systems are built from high accuracy scanning frames allowing for scanning of complex parts and include a multi-channel ultrasonic instrument with exceptional performance. The systems are approved by all major manufacturers for C-scan inspection of jet engine forged discs.
Together with a comprehensive set of software modules these flexible series of systems provide the customer with the best price performance solutions.
