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.

oved signal to noise ratio, characterize, size and analyze defects better with access to several wave mode views and save raw FMC data for higher quality analysis.  Some of the benefits are:
  • Beautiful Image! Easier to understand what you're looking at
  • Completely focused in entire image or volume
  • Much easier to define setups before inspection
  • Easier to decipher geometry echoes from real defects
  • Oriented defects (e.g. cracks) are imaged better
  • See image from different wave modes from one FMC inspection
  • FMC data can be reprocessed/analyzed without going back to the field
