Cygnus Instruments Ltd is the leading manufacturer of digital ultrasonic thickness gauges employing the Cygnus-Pioneered Multiple Echo technique to give accurate, error-checked metal thickness measurements through coatings. The Cygnus range of thickness gauges includes:
Cygnus 1 Intrinsically Safe: A tough and rugged ultrasonic thickness gauge designed for safe use in potentially explosive environments and is ATEX certified.
Cygnus 2 Hands Free: Smallest, lightest and most durable through coating thickness gauge available and is RINA Type approved. Designed for rope access or belt mounted applications, where the end-mounted OLED display can be easily read whilst taking measurements.
Cygnus 3 Data Logger: Flexible and easy to use with a simple menu operation and has three data logging modes providing a simple solution to recording various geometries such as tanks, cylinders, pipes and plant.
Cygnus 4 General Purpose: RINA Type approved and highly versatile for use in most hand-held industrial or shipping applications. With a menu-driven operation and 'Deep-Coat' mode allowing easy thickness gauging through coatings up to 20mm thick.
Cygnus Heavy Duty: Tough and rugged and has been designed for use in the most demanding environments, indoors or outdoors.
Cygnus DIVE: Underwater thickness gauge now with a new bright colour AMOLED display for easy viewing from all angles, by the diver and his camera, even in poor visibility. This wrist-mountable ultrasonic thickness gauge has been designed for the professional diver and can be worn on the forearm which gives an invaluable free hand whilst performing thickness surveys underwater.
Cygnus Underwater: Designed for use by divers undertaking subsea surveys and is pressure rated to a depth of 300m, with a 'Deep-Coat' mode allowing easy thickness gauging through coatings up to 20mm thick.
Cygnus ROV Mountable Series: Available in 500m, 2000m and 4000m depth rating and designed to operate in the harshest operating conditions.
In addition to thickness gauges, Cygnus also carries two other ultrasonic product lines:
CygScope R & RD: Quickly and accurately detects leaks in industrial machinery, faults in electrical insulation and early wear in bearings using ultrasound.
Cygnus Hatch Sure: Provides a quick and effective method of evaluating hatch seals to prevent sea water ingress which is a major source of damage to cargo which results in expensive insurance claims.
