Public Profile

A spin-off from the University of Delaware, MCET Technologies was orginally focused on developing and commercializing textiles and advanced composite materials that are engineered with state-of-the-art nanostructured materials. An early stage firm developing and integrating advanced sensors and electronics into conventional textiles without adding significant weight or changing the texture or feel of the fabric, MCET Technologies' initial focus had been on tracking physical rehabilitation as well as exploring new applications in sports science and training, automotive and aerospace industries, and biomedical devices. Somewhere along the line, a major shift occurred involving a product that can be applied to a variety of surfaces - steel, wrought iron, plastic, PTFE, or composites - technology offered by MCET brings a capacity that had not previously existed in Oil & Gas and Chemical markets. MCET Technologies is developing a novel technology capable of continuously monitoring (24/7) critical components in pipelines and pipeline joints. With the components of the product being applied as a distributive network, the sensors offered have the capabity to monitor a wide area - as opposed to limited ranges. Additionally the CNT sensors can sense strain or damage in any direction. Further, - due to the sensors being directly applied to the surface of the (any) component - any form of damage, corrosion, or strain can be sensed directly. Additionally, given that the sensing skins are flexible, they can be directly applied to diameters as small as 1”. Representing a further significant advance beyond current techniques, the CNT technology can also be relied upon to make periodic inspection for an extended period: months or even years. Current technology is either restricted to larger pipe sizes (ILI inspections) or is limited to small, “regional” areas (strain gauges). In other words, MCET technology has that presently do not exist in Oil & Gas and Chemical markets
