Recent technological advances in precision, fully-digital ultrasonic wall-thickness measurement systems coupled with cellular data back-haul are enabling very accurate, easily deployable, and more cost-effective corrosion monitoring systems that can compete with more traditional manual non-destructive testing (NDT) methods. Some comparisons with improved data accuracy of installed sensors in lieu of larger quantities of manual spot data are presented. This paper will include the design principles used in the creation of this next-generation platform, end-user input used to refine the design, and recent installation and operational experiences.

Key words: conference papers, 2017 conference papers, corrosion, ultrasound, permanently installed monitoring system
