Title: SENSOR
Abstract:
A sensor assembly for detecting material loss of a vessel transporting flowing media, the sensor assembly having at least one sensor positioned between a pair of annular plates such that the radially innermost surface of the sensor is in open communication with the flowing media. A series of parallel resistors spaced along the sensor and transmit a signal. As the material of the annular plates is worn away by corrosion and/or erosion, the outermost resistor becomes exposed to the flowing media and breaks the circuit as to that resistor, thus changing the signal.
