medical transducer fabrication

Greetings All,

I am interested in the design and fabrication of medical transducers.
Specifically my question today concerns the final material
applied onto the radiating face on the ceramic-matching layer combinations.
This material is commonly an RTV or a castable polyurethane, which is used to form lenses
and/or for further impedance matching and as a environmental barrier.
That much I believe to be correct. My question is on the specifics of these materials.
Who makes them? What are the common formulations?
Have their acoustic properties been reported? Where are they reported?

Thanks for your attention and any responses

Grant Gordon

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.
