Advanced Ultrasonic Couplant for Long Term Probe Placement
Posted: 2019-3-12Applications exist where ultrasonic probes are required to be in place for long periods of time, sometimes in relatively extreme conditions. Typically, ultrasonic corrosion monitoring and ultrasonic flow metering place probes on a surface and take readings on a continuous or periodic basis. Water soluble gels eventually dry and the coupling effect is reduced and then lost.
Innovation Polymers has developed a new ultrasonic couplant that permits long term probe placement without significant coupling losse...Read More.
Touch Down: Eddy Current Wheel Probes Help Ensure a Safe Landing
Posted: 2019-3-6Traveling at 170 miles per hour, a nearly 100-ton aircraft skims the surface above the tarmac. A few seconds later, the airplane touches down, small puffs of smoke emerging from the tires when they touch the ground.
This scene occurs thousands of times a day.
Airplane wheels are essential for ensuring that each landing happens safely. They experience a tremendous amount of stress and brake-generated heat during landing, so they must be strong. But they also need to be lightweight. Consequently, most ...Read More.
