From Zero to Ninety-two Elements in Under One Week.

Posted by Venay Sehgal Bhatia on Feb 4, 2019 12:40:58 PM

Being in the safety-critical asset management business means we know urgency and know how important it is to our customers to have the assurance that everything works. Recently, we were in such a situation. The phone rang on a Saturday morning - on the other side was a panicked customer who urgently needed a solution. The caller had their bar-mill production line effectively shut down due to an isolated failure of their phased-array transducers in their automated bar-testing machine. Their primary transducer supplier needed many weeks to respond to their request. The customer was at a loss until he reached out to his network and learned about a boutique transducer supplier in Central Pennsylvania called Sensor Networks, Inc.

Time-Gated Corrosion-Rate Measurement using a Non-intrusive Ultrasonic Monitoring System.

Posted by Mitch Gribi on Jan 22, 2019 10:59:45 AM

Process units such as refineries and chemical manufacturing facilities observe operational events happening on a daily, weekly, monthly, and sometimes even hourly basis that can induce pesky episodic or lasting corrosion. Perhaps an excursion or upset took place and you want to take a closer look at the integrity operating window (IOW) of that asset. Maybe a unit is being brought back online from a turnaround or maintenance activity and you want to monitor start-up conditions. Perhaps the facility is processing a new crude slate to take advantage of lower-priced, opportunity-crude feed stock.

The Lowly Strain Relief

Posted by Bruce Pellegrino on Jan 3, 2019 2:10:00 PM

Protect a $5,000 phased-array transducer assembly with a $3 strain relief

Few people wake up in the morning and truly appreciate their cable’s strain reliefs. But SNI does.

In fact, in working with our key suppliers, we’ve spent a fair amount of time and money to develop an engineered product that will give our phased-array transducer customers added protection and insurance against cable failures.

Transducers are electro-mechanical devices that see wear and tear thorough normal usage especially with bending and twisting of the cable and its interface to the probe housing. A 128-element array transducer has two ends and 256 solder joints per end or over 500 solder connections per transducer!
