Rail inspection

We need the ability to do more frequent and thorough rail inspections that do not interfere with revenue-generating traffic and even without forcing train traffic in the area to shut down.

Appreciating your help!

Re: Rail inspection
We have developed a rsil testing unit that uses Guided Waves. It has been designed to inspect the whole rail section from one location and can be used on live track so as not to disrupt traffic.

You can look ot our website www.guided-ultrasonics.com and use the links to contact us if you require more information.

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.
