Refinery operations can greatly benefit from embracing new technology available to them to create smoother operations. In fact, in a presentation given at NACE 2019, Michael Nugent of The Equity Engineering Group goes over why it is beneficial to have long-range wireless ultrasonic corrosion sensors for applications in refineries.
Computer modeling of the acoustic energy in phased-array UT examination of nuclear-vessel bolts saves time, money and increases both POD and inspection productivity.
CORROSION 2019 is a highly-regarded trade conference sponsored by NACE International dealing with the issues of corrosion management and preventing its effects. Scientists, engineers, educators, researchers, vendors, asset owners and students alike come together and share their knowledge and ideas at NACE’s conference and trade show. This year, SNI enjoyed a productive run at the NACE trade show in Nashville, Tennessee the week of March 24, 2019. Members of SNI's team gave a few noteworthy presentations at the show.

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.
