The single most important factor in acoustic emission
(AE) testing is the selection of the
AE sensor (transducer). Physical Acoustics Corporation prides itself on
its ability to continually design and manufacture a diverse line of quality
high sensitivity / low noise sensors to meet your particular needs. This
capability is based on our solid tradition and expertise in the field of
AE applications, which began with Dunegan Corporation in 1968.
sensors actually "listen" to structures and materials to detect
AE activity. Pressure vessels, storage tanks, heat exchangers, piping,
reactors, aerial lift devices, and nuclear power plants are among the
most common types of structures that are monitored. In all applications,
AE sensors are vital links between the test structures and the analysis
instrumentation, and their performance is critical to the success of every
AE sensors are available from PAC in various sizes,
shapes, frequency and temperature ranges, and packaging styles n order
to meet the diverse needs of the application and environment. Browse our
