Face plate for contact transducer

Hello, all. My name is Li Zhang, a student of Univ. of Massachusetts.

I am in a project of making contact ultrasonic transducer. The transcucer will be used in contact with aluminum or steel. I don't know what kind of wear plate (face plate) is available. I have checked alumina, the price is incredibly high. Anybody knows alternatives? It will be great if you can also give me some websites or company names. I appreciate for your help.

Li

...
nresolved asset integrity problem in the industry. Current methods for measuring wall thickness with liftoff, without removing insulation, all have severe limitations. Eddyfi introduces Lyft — a reinvented, high-performance pulsed eddy current (PEC) solution. The patent- pending system features a state-of-the-art portable instrument, real- time C-scan imaging, fast data acquisition with grid-mapping and dynamic scanning modes, and flexibility with long cables. It can also scan through thick metal and insulation, as well as aluminum, stainless steel, and galvanized steel weather jackets. Who else but Eddyfi to reinvent an eddy current technique and redefine CUI programs. Got Lyft?
