SensorScan™ UT Transducers and SNI's Vertical Integration Path

Posted by Sensor Networks, Inc on Nov 15, 2018 6:19:53 PM

“The transducer enables and/or optimizes the UT exam,” Dane Hackenberger, Senior Transducer Designer.

SNI continues its march toward a more vertically-integrated design-build transducer business for both standard and custom phased-array transducers. The end-result for our customers is shorter lead times and consistent high-quality transducers at competitive prices.

Russ Berrier manages SNI’s ceramic shop which includes a precision dicing saw that can slice & dice piezo-ceramic materials into the size and matrix requirements for almost any industrial phased-array transducer.

Kim Condrack, SNI’s Senior Transducer Assembler, performs wiring on custom “wand” probe for aircraft-engine inspections. Array lamination technologies are developed for 16, 32, 64 and 128-element PAUT probes. This investment enhances SNI’s ability to manufacture consistent, high-quality transducers in a timely fashion with improved yields. All SensorScan™ transducers come packed in a rugged little box along with their certification documents.

The end-result is that SNI can quickly (in weeks–not months) design, build, test and certify complex-geometry PAUT transducers such as this 10 MHz x 128-element array used for detection and sizing of High-Temperature Hydrogen Attack (HTHA) in refinery assets.

SensorScan™ PAUT probes can be designed to work with any manufacturers instrument. Area arrays, like the 2 x 2 x 32 element shown above can focus sound energy at varying depths and the beam can be steered in any direction to increase POD and inspection productivity.
