Acoustic emission sensor

Published:  24 February, 2014

Kistler_Noise_Transducer_Type_8152C_HR.jpgThe new Type 8152C Piezotron sensor from KISTLER is said to be ideal for monitoring acoustic emissions (AE) above 50 kHz on the surface of metal machines,

structures and systems for preventative maintenance of rotating machines, monitoring cutting tools and press tools to detect signs of incipient failure and leakage monitoring of tanks, pipes and valves.

The rugged welded housing, wide operating temperature range from -54°C to 165°C and IP65 rating can make the new sensor suitable for use in the most challenging industrial environments. ATEX Zone 0 and Zone 2 intrinsically safe versions are available for use in hazardous areas. Two frequency ranges, 50 to 400 kHz and 100 to 900 kHz, are offered in all versions.
