Measuring Coating Thickness at Hig Temps

Im currently looking for an instrument to read thickness of a non-ferrous coating on a ferrous substrate, with a surface temp of 500 F. Magnetic gauges only go to 400F and are affected by high temp. Can anyone suggest a product?

Measuring Coating Thickness at High Temps
The Lixi Profiler can measure at high temperature the thickness of a coating on ferrous material if the X-Ray absorption of the coating is at least 2% of the ferrous material

What is the coating material and what is the thickness range? It may be possible to do this ultrasonically, using a high temperature delay line transducer, but I need more information about exactly what you're measuring to comment further.

mances of portable X-Ray sets. Despite having managed to halve the weight of similar portable X-Ray generators available on the market (while continuing to provide the same power output), the SITEX CPSERIES generators feature a shutter, a laser pointer, a beryllium window, an aluminum filter and two integrated diaphragms (customized sizes are available upon request). Without compromising the robustness and reliability for which ICM products are renowned, the small size and light weight of the SITEX CPSERIES will radically change the way that you perform your RT inspections. And you will see a positive impact in terms of both quality and return on investment (ROI).
