Detailed Description

  • Low and high temperatures (up to 1200 °C)
  • Long term measurement at 660°C
  • Useful for long term diagnostics (up to 30 years)
  • Wide range of metallic, conductive and semi-conductive materials use
  • Wireless access and on-line diagnostics
  • Measuring during running conditions (heating, cooling, vibrating, deforming, …)
  • Material degradation diagnostics by using of MDAPD Modified Direct and Alternating current Potential Drop technique (ACPD/DCPD/Corrected DCPD)
  • Measurement applications (accuracy 1 ‰, resolution 0.01‰)

Applicable to:

  • Insulated pipes and constructions (no need to remove insulation before measuring operation)
