WAND

The Wireless And Non Destructive (WAND) system can be used for monitoring of internal corrosion or erosion on pipework or vessels. The sensors are compact, wireless, battery-free and RFID tagged and become activated when the WAND Data Collector is brought near by. The IDM software can be used for management, analysis and trending of the data.

WAND Sensors

Proactive maintenance decisions informed by reliable trend data from permanently installed wireless sensors

The intrinsically safe WAND Sensors can be permanently attached to structures using an adhesive to measure wall thickness. The sensors are compact, have no wires or batteries and can be installed quickly in exposed or hard to reach locations. They can even be installed beneath layers of material such as coatings, insulation or composite repairs and operated without the need to remove the layer of material.

The sensors can be tagged with an RFID so that the same measurements are taken from exactly the same location each time. A coating is also supplied for environmental  protection. Repeatable and highly accurate readings over time show accurate trends in wall thickness and can inform proactive decision making.

WAND Data Collector

Data collection from installed sensors with the press of a button

The WAND Data Collector is a battery operated hand held device that when near to the WAND sensor provides the power and acquires the ultrasonic thickness data and associated RFID data. The ultrasonic A-scan is displayed on the screen along with the calculated thickness and RFID.

An accurate, repeatable ultrasonic thickness measurement can be taken within less than a second with the press of a button. There is no need for coupling gels or accurate alignment, and the human error is eliminated the measurement process.

IDM Software

Cut downtime and unplanned stoppages with data driven decision making

Effective decision making concerning asset integrity requires accurate data and historical trend analysis. The IDM software combines an intuitive interface with sophisticated signal processing to display captured data by sensor.

The software lets you interrogate the original A-scan of a particular reading for a sensor or a collection of readings for a sensor or group of sensors over a given period of time. This analysis of data trends from permanently installed sensors can drive proactive decision making.
