Cereus Ultrasonics Ltd. is an early-stage company, just four years old and based in Poole, Dorset, UK.

Our first product is a ground-breaking downhole Ultrasonic well inspection tool for the oil and gas industry. The first version is scheduled to launch later this year, with a further two variants of the technology planned utilising our ‘Cereus Engine’. After this first industrial phase, the company is planning to introduce this ground-breaking ultrasonic and acoustic solution into other industrial sectors, with specific interest already generated for applications in medical and defence.

All applications using ultrasonic and acoustic transducers can benefit from the Cereus Engine.
