This product does not have additional information.


  • Built on the award winning HotSense ultrasonic platform powered by the proprietary Ionix HPZ piezo-ceramic, and offering increased heat resilience.
  • -55 to +350 °C [-67 to +662 °F] continuous use temperature range.
  • No cooling required. Increase your productivity by reducing duty cycling.
  • High sensitivity with integrated wedges across the temperature range.
  • Compatible with commercial scanners and crawlers.


  • Stable signal for reliability and repeatability – no duty cycling means no drift from thermal gradients in the wedges.
  • Short approach to beam exit to get closer to weld caps.
  • Enhanced wear resistance for the most extreme environments and applications.


  • Make weld inspections on hot assets, on-stream, without the need to shutdown or isolate.
  • Make effective weld root corrosion assessments rapidly at high-temperature.
  • Detect and size cracks or defects in welds or parent material on-stream.
  • Screen for HTHA in-service.
  • TOFD carries the highest POD for NDT methods.
