Thickness gauges(ultra-sonic)

Application: Accurately measuring remaining wall thickness of metal pipes, tanks, beams, ship hulls, and other structures through paint and similar coatings.

Background: In many industrial and petrochemical maintenance situations it is necessary to measure the remaining thickness of metal that is subject to corrosion through one or more coats of paint or similar non-metallic coatings. With conventional ultrasonic thickness gages, the presence of paint or similar coatings will cause measurement errors, typically increasing the apparent metal thickness by more than twice the thickness of the paint, due to the paint's much slower sound velocity. Two solutions to this problem are available: echo-to-echo measurement and Thru-Coat measurement.
