Panametrics is pleased to introduce the
Model 25DL-HP ultrasonic thickness gage.
This handheld unit improves product quality and reduces labor and material costs by
making digital thickness measurements
from one side of a material. The 25DL-HP
makes accurate thickness measurements
from 1-500 mm (0.030-20 in.). The 25DL-
HP's unique combination of high penetration electronics and low frequency capability offers the user unmatched ultrasound
penetration in castings, fiberglass, composites, rubber, and thick plastics. These materials are difficult to inspect with traditional
gages because of conditions such as sound
attenuation, reflection, and scattering.
