LITE Solid Rings


LITE solid rings are milled from plastic, making them lighter weight. They can be used to up to 150°C (300°F).
Solid rings are attached to the pipe by tightening the two large handles which push the spring loaded transducers onto the pipe to obtain good shear coupling. Customised rings can be specially produced in other than the standard sizes or with 4 rows of transducers to allow for inspection using both longitudinal and torsional guided wave modes.
Key application areas include:
  • Bare / Painted Pipes
  • Sleeved / Unsleeved Road Crossing Pipes
  • Buried Pipes

The High Definition (HD) solid rings have EFC performance and utilise the high frequency range available with the Wavemaker® G4mini or the Wavemaker® G4 with the medium frequency option (LF+MF option) for applications where higher sensitivity and resolution are required.

Such applications typically include:

  • interface penetrations
  • supports
  • localised pitting
