Title: Device for measuring material deterioration in equipment

Abstract

A device for improving the accuracy and precision of measuring equipment changes due to corrosion, erosion, build-up of material, and combinations thereof. Increased control over the placement and removal of a coupon within the equipment is provided. Embodiments of the coupon provide multiple approaches for such measurements such as e.g., weight changes, thickness changes, inspection and analysis of the contacting surface of the coupon, and combination. Improved measurements with coupons using probes such as e.g., ultrasonic transducers is also described.
