hand held scanner for metal thicknesses

Please advise magnetic hand held scanner for measuring ferrous metal thickness applicable for example to measure remaining wall
thickness of ship hulls. Everyone's advice is appreciated.

Re: hand held scanner for metal thicknesses
Regarding a hand held scanner (magnetic) for measuring remaining wall on ships hull. Give RTD Quality Services a call and ask about their Incotest machine. It measures remaining wall. It can also measure through up to 6" or 150mm of insulation. This device also has submersible capabilities. Check out RTD Quality Service Inc. Go to www.rtdquality.com.

Depending on the required results, you can utilize a hand held thickness gauge to perform the measurements using a grid measurement pattern. Instruments like the Krautkramer DMS 2 allow you to store the thickness readings in memory, download the readings to the UltraMATE software program, colorize the readings by thinkness and print a comprehensive report of the wall thickness on a single plate, section of complete haul.

The DMS 2 supports B-Scan measurements (cross sectional views of the scan), saving them to memory and downloading to the UltraMATE software for on screen analysis, storage and printing. Again, making excellent reports!

I would also imagine the haul is painted, this using our patented TopCOAT measurement mode would allow wall measurement along with the coating measurement at the same time.The TopCOAT measurement tecnhique is extreemly sensitive to pitting and heavy corrosion giving you better measurement results than convensional echo-to-echo measurement modes.

The DMS 2 and TopCOAT probe also doubles as an auto velocity measurement device for accurate measurements of materials where the velocity is unknown.

Please review the detailed information on the Krautkramer web site.

.If you are interested in performing an ultrasonic C-Scan of the inspection area, we have a hand held scanner called a "Field Mouse". It has contoured magnetic wheels for use on vessels as well as piping. Used with a suitable imaging system such as an IntraSpect, it can perform unidirectional "comb" scans, as well as line scans and traditional raster scans.

If you would like additional information, please contact me. Thanks.

Re: hand held scanner for metal thicknesses
We're all leaping in and trying to plug our various boxes (www.sonatest-plc.com for ours!) But is there some reason why a magnetic method, rather than Ultrasonic thickness gauging, is preferred here?

Otherwise I'd agree that the use of an A-scan thickness meter with datalogging (Our Alphagage, the KK DMS2, or the Panametics unit) would be the logical way to go.

Re: hand held scanner for metal thicknesses
I think I've joined this discussion a bit late but here goes... I need a hand held, magnetic method scanner to measure the thickness of a street light steel column. Held on the column above the ground would give one result and at ground level would give a lower reading if the column were corroded up to a few inches below the ground, where all the damage is done.... can anyone out there offer any advice?
