Line sensor for industry


The C13247 is an energy differentiation type radiation line sensor designed for an efficient, non-invasive detection of pipe corrosion in industrial plants such as oil, gas and petrochemical refineries. The C13247 ensures high accuracy that never seen up till now and reliable inspections of pipe corrosion.
In conventional visual and ultrasonic inspections, the heat insulator materials must be removed from around the pipes. This also requires the time and the cost of installing scaffolds to remove and rewrap the heat insulator materials. Other techniques that utilize conventional radiation inspection or neutron moisture measurement have the problem of being easily affected by scattered radiation which makes accurate measurement difficult.
The C13247 energy-discriminating radiation line sensor solves all of these problems to successfully capture sharp, clear inspection images.
