Sound velocity measurements

Accuracy of sound velocity measurements( <=0.1% ?)

During the revision of the ISO 2400 Standard for the IIW block Nr. 1 we had to discuss
the problem of the accuracy at sound velocity measurements achievable with standard laboratory equipments.
This debate showed us that the difficulties with this problem tend to be underestimated. An absolute accuracy
of 0.1 % can be realized only with a certain amount care during the measurements.
As a reference I would like to indicate a contribution presented at the ASTM New Methods Seminar

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.
