multi-layer thickness measurement.

Dear Sir

I'm looking for in-line system for multi-layer thickess measurement.
I want to measure wall thickness of Pipe.
Pipe is consist in PB(poly Buthylene) and EVOH(thin plate).
Total Diameter of Pipe : 10mm -25mm
total wall thickness : 1.6mm - 3mm
Wall Configuration:
Outter wall Insulation layer Inner wall
PB(0.7mm-1.5mm) EVOH(fixed 0.1mm) PB(0.7mm-1.5mm)

there is no air gap between EVOH and PB.

Any comment will be appreciated!
Thank you!

Re: multi-layer thickness measurement.
I am pleased to see so often rising topics of my old favorite market of ultrasonic testing in plastic pipe extrusion.

You may read the article "UT in Plastic pipe extrusion" which is a guide book about the state of the art (http://www.ndt.net/article/rohrext/rohre_e.htm). It should not be a problem to measure the wallthickness of the extruded multilayer pipe you requested. Even a single layers could be evaluated, this is described in the chapter - Coextrusion Layer Thickness Measurement.
Anyway, be carefully when using a simple digital thickness gage with no echo display. The multilayer can cause interferences and phase shifts which needs an appropriate gate and threshold setting. An echo display of a typical problem is depicted at http://www.ndt.net/article/rohrext/image/multilay.gif.

nresolved asset integrity problem in the industry. Current methods for measuring wall thickness with liftoff, without removing insulation, all have severe limitations. Eddyfi introduces Lyft — a reinvented, high-performance pulsed eddy current (PEC) solution. The patent- pending system features a state-of-the-art portable instrument, real- time C-scan imaging, fast data acquisition with grid-mapping and dynamic scanning modes, and flexibility with long cables. It can also scan through thick metal and insulation, as well as aluminum, stainless steel, and galvanized steel weather jackets. Who else but Eddyfi to reinvent an eddy current technique and redefine CUI programs. Got Lyft?
