Looking for a transducer/wedge for surface waves in steel

Hello.

I am looking for a transducer/wedge to generate surface waves on a stainless steel rod of around 3 feet long and 1 inch diameter. I am more interested in high sensitivity than in a high resolution, anyway I was thinking in a 1 MHz center frequency transducer for this application. The reason for the high sensitivity is that I need to locate some flaws away from the wedge without moving it. The size of the arrangement cannot be larger than 0.5 inch height and 1.2 inches long.

Thank you very much in advance for the information that you can provide me. Of course if you have any comment regarding this issue please contact me in this forum or via email.

Best regards,

Jhon.
