DC Series Transducers Provide a Complete Corrosion Monitoring Toolbox

Olympus has announced its new DC series (DC1–DC5) dual element transducers to provide inspectors with a complete corrosion monitoring toolbox for pipeline and tank integrity. Optimised for corrosion and thin materials, the transducers work with the NDT instruments and ultrasonic inspection procedures used in the oil & gas, energy and mining industries.  According to the company, depending on the application, any one or a combination of these five transducers offers improved corrosion monitoring and defect sizing. As field inspections change, inspectors can benefit from having the complete set of transducers with a total combined thickness range of 0–50 mm, as well as the extra pipe weld inspection tool with the DC3 model.

All models provide a cleaner signal than single element transducers, and offer less ring down than comparable models—helpful for resolving smaller defects, inspecting close to the surface and differentiating between two indications.

Featuring a thick-walled, wear-resistant housing (DC2 model) and replaceable wedges (DC4 and DC5), the transducers are built to last. A heat-resistant delay line up to 150 C on the DC1 and DC2 models helps reduce maintenance time for elevated-temperature pipe and tank inspections, concluded the company.
