We are proud to announce that the Novosound Belenus-X corrosion monitoring sensor is certified for operation in ATEX, IECEx and UKEX Zone 0 locations. Designed and manufactured in line with international intrinsically safe standards, this latest certification extends the potential application of the Novosound Belenus-X to operate in areas where explosive gas atmosphere is present continuously or for long periods.

The Novosound Belenus-X is a permanently installed ultrasonic sensor enabling in-service corrosion monitoring in the most safety-critical and high-risk environments.

Capable of continuous operation up to 400C (752F), the Belenus-X can be installed directly onto the asset without the need for coolant, couplant, or delay lines. Combined with its high-resolution imaging capabilities, the Belenus-X provides process engineers with highly accurate wall thickness measurements.

Featuring a compact footprint (50 x 30 x 20 mm) and flexible core technology, the Belenus-X can be easily fitted to a range of pipe shapes including challenging branches and pipe elbow bends where critical failures often occur.

During installation, the Belenus-X is mounted directly on the pipe with no welding required. This ensures minimal interruptions to plant operations and no subsequent effect to the structural integrity of the asset.

Enabling continuous corrosion monitoring in hazardous areas, the Belenus-X provides plant operators with granular, high-quality and repeatable corrosion data that cannot be achieved with periodic manual inspections. With the sensitivity to detect small changes in wall thickness, the Belenus-X enables the early and reliable detection of corrosion. This facilitates better maintenance planning and allows operators to carry out timely repairs, mitigating potential, costly damages. By enabling the move away from manual inspections, the safety risk to personnel when operating in hazardous locations is also reduced.
