Material thickness (residual metal thickness)

Multigauge 5500


Ships often suffer from the most severe cases of metal loss due to the corrosive effects of salt water.
The ultrasonic wall thickness gauges in our product range are used to measure metal thickness without first removing the paint layers. This facilitates the measurement without prior preparation of the measuring point, i.e. sanding or flexing of paint coatings, and shortens the measuring time.

Simple operation

The Multigauge Series measures through paint coatings with ultrasonic and the 3-times echo measuring method and displays the residual metal thickness without coating.

The connected probe is automatically recognised by the unit, including the stored calibration data. The test heads can thus be exchanged without recalibration! Calibration for non-ferrous metals can be carried out simply by entering the speed of sound or by calibrating to a known workpiece. The 3x echo measurement method is required by IACS guidelines for measurements in the marine sector. Corresponding certificates are available!
