Corrosion monitoring system

Here's a new system that monitors the integrity of oil and gas infrastructure.

The system offers repeatable wall thickness monitoring that gives corrosion engineers, inspectors, planners, and refinery managers insights into the condition and capability of oil and gas assets.

The system is based on a network of permanently positioned, ultrasonic wall thickness measurement sensors. It uses a patented, waveguide-mounted sensor design. The sensors can be permanently attached to pipework operating in temperatures of –40° C. to +550° C.—even in difficult-to-access locations. Sensors are linked via wireless network to provide data directly to the user for stand-alone viewing or integration into other plant monitoring systems. The sensors have ATEX and FM approval in Europe, the US, and Australia.

New laser start-up kits

These two new universal laser start-up kits provide common equipment necessary for supplying resonator and assist gases to the laser.

Included in the basic kit are high purity regulators for the resonator gases and high-flow, dome-loaded regulators for nitrogen and oxygen assist gas. Laser grade hose is included for the resonator gas as well as two high-capacity hoses for the assist gas.

Premium kits provide equipment for supplying resonator and assist gases from source to point of use. All premium kits contain switchover systems for the resonator gases, high-flow, dome-loaded regulators for assist gases, and cylinder process stations. Premium kits include purges and T filters to protect laser optics.
