Sensor Networks, Inc. is a Central Pennsylvania-based technology company specializing in:

  • Installed ultrasonic sensor networks used to measure and monitor metal loss due to corrosion / erosion in industrial assets.
  • Custom conventional and phased-array ultrasonic transducers for safety-critical and demanding applications in the Aerospace and Power Generation industries.

We design and manufacture integrated systems and transducers for asset-condition monitoring using ultrasonic sensors and arrays using a digital control-and-communications system architecture that supports handheld, wired and wireless data collection.
Our products are highly modular and can be configured for many different portable and installed-sensor applications in the Aerospace, Oil & Gas, Power Generation, and other PSM-regulated industries. Single locations, dozens, hundreds, even a thousand data points can be monitored with a single wireless network or cable drop.
Our expertise lies with precision ultrasonic thickness gaging and flaw detection using single-, dual-element, angle-beam or phased-array transducers. Off-the-shelf or custom products for real-time corrosion & erosion monitoring or flaw detection applications are addressable with our technology.

Our ultrasonic sensors can monitor metal loss and material degradation due to corrosion / erosion or cracking including crack growth in the following industries:

Oil & Gas Upstream

Sand erosion monitoring on riser pipes, Choke and kill piping, Flow-line corrosion, Scrubber and water separators, heat-exchanger vessels, offshore structural steel.

Oil & Gas Midstream

Jump-over station piping, buried pipe including natural gas distribution, oil crude lines, tar sands, road crossings, wet gas pipelines.

Oil & Gas Downstream

Pipes, pressure vessels, heat exchanger shells, tray towers, overhead crude lines, sour water service, vacuum lines, etc.

Electric Power Generation

High-energy piping, buried and service water pipes, penstocks, feed-water piping and heater shells, condenser lines, nuclear containment building liners.

Key Benefits:

Enhanced trending for life extension and predictive maintenance

Non-intrusive inspection and monitoring

Modular & scalable systems

Hard-to-access / remote locations (overhead crude lines, offshore assets, buried piping)

Reduced cost of lagging/de-lagging, scaffolding, excavation, etc.

Safety of inspection personnel

Augmented and enhanced RBI calculations

Improved measurement capabilities with dozens to hundreds of data-collection points
