Inductosense is a Bristol, UK based company that designs and manufactures ultrasonic sensor technology for asset integrity. The WAND system – the latest Inductosense innovation – is a patented internal corrosion/erosion monitoring system. It consists of permanently installed ultrasonic thickness sensors that can be deployed in volume at thickness measurement locations on an asset. The sensors are unique in that they are battery-free, ultrathin discs that can be embedded underneath insulation, coatings and repairs. To acquire thickness measurements from the sensors, Inductosense have developed a handheld data collection device – called the WAND – which wirelessly activates the sensors and simultaneously collects a thickness reading. Further to this, the thickness measurements collected by the WAND can be uploaded to their software, enabling remote trending of the data.
