Non Destructive Ultrasonic Equipment for Hazardous Environments

As well as being intrinsically safe, the Cygnus 1 UT equipment is extremely rugged and well suited for use in harsh environments.  Examples of such areas include:

  • Chemical plants
  • Dry, dusty environments where ignition could occur
  • Fuel depots
  • Grain processing plants
  • Inside storage tanks on land or at sea
  • Oil and gas production facilities
  • Mining
  • Explosive atmospheres.

Cygnus has developed a Multiple Echo NDT ultrasonic thickness gauge that is certified for use in these hazardous environments. The Cygnus 1 Intrinsically Safe thickness gauge is certified to:
