Acoustic emission sensor
24 February 2014
The new Type 8152C Piezotron sensor from Kistler is designed to monitor acoustic emissions (AE) above 50kHz 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 make the new sensor suitable for use in challenging industrial environments. ATEX Zone 0 and Zone 2 intrinsically safe versions are available for use in hazardous areas.
Two frequency ranges, 50 to 400kHz and 100 to 900kHz, are offered in all versions.
