In the oil and gas industry, for example, Novosound’s new “fit-and-forget” sensors can be fixed along a pipeline to detect potential cracks and faults before they become critical; a problem that has been well-publicised recently for companies in the sector.
These sensors can operate at very high temperatures (above 250 °C) meaning that, in nuclear power stations and petrochemical refineries, crucial inspection of critical infrastructure can be carried out without the need to cool down pipes – a setback that currently costs the industry billions of dollars per year.
Novosound's sensors remove this problem by providing continuous monitoring, even above 250C
High frequency ultrasound transducers to suit your needs, with a range of probes operating from 10MHz up to 150MHz, suitable for medical and NDT imaging. These require low voltage excitation, making them perfect for portable applications. novosound single element probes are currently undergoing testing and evaluation for applications in:
Novosound sell high resolution, focused and flat, ultrasound transducers for acoustic microscopy and other imaging applications.
We can tailor the probe design to your application, and our flexible technology opens up new frontiers in the use of ultrasound for biomedical, industrial and wearable applications
Current ultrasound arrays require a large amount of difficult manufacturing to produce 64-128 individual ultrasound imaging sensors in one probe. This leads to high sales prices and low-image quality.
Novosound improve on this by producing the world’s first fully printed ultrasound imaging array, which provides high resolution, flexibility and low-cost.
Our miniature high resolution imaging arrays can be used in
