Till quite recently, in-service defect monitoring of Industrial Equipments is being accomplished by tedious manual methodologies for utilizing the conventional or Non-Destructive techniques for defects monitoring. There have been efforts in the recent past to make use of mini mobile robots with NDE techniques for defect monitoring in the inspection of pipes with reasonable success. In this context, this paper proposes a new development methodology of conceptual Internet of Things (IoT) sensors based Non-Destructive Evaluation Technique (NDE) based on Ultrasonic for in-service defect monitoring of Industrial Equipments. The underlying philosophy chosen is ‘integrating an ultrasonic Non-Destructive Evaluation sensor packaged with IoT based sensor’. During the run time, the integrity of material will be done. Non-Destructive testing allows measurement of material properties without inflicting any damage to the material in process. An IoT with wireless network coupled with NDE facilitates the mutual effort to monitor a certain aspect without the use of valuable fixed wired circuits. A typical system architecture of a ‘paired module’ comprising of IoT sensor and NDE sensor packaged to monitor the defect status conditions of the pipelines is envisaged. A specific study is elaborated to monitor the thickness of a in-service pipeline used in Industrial Equipment. This concept methodology aims to work as an alternate to the existing technologies in similar context while providing enormous advantages over the existing methods.
