MG2 Series Handheld Ultrasonic Corrosion Gauges with Thru-Coat® and Echo-to-Echo

March 2005, Waltham, MA
Panametrics-NDT™, a business of R/D Tech Instruments Inc. is pleased to announce the new MG2 Series Ultrasonic Thickness gages. These small, affordable gages are primarily designed for inspectors and maintenance engineers responsible for measuring the remaining thickness of internally corroded pipes, tanks, and other metal structures. Lightweight and ergonomically designed for easy one-hand operation, these gages provide cost-effective nondestructive measurement solutions in applications that require quick inspection of parts suspected of metal wall thinning. They make instant digital measurements by transmitting sound into a material from one side, making it unnecessary to cut the corroded part.

The MG2-XT and MG2-DL models offer two important time-saving features typically not available in handheld gages: Thru-Coat and Echo-to-Echo, both of which eliminate the need to remove a paint or coating. The patented Thru-Coat technology uses a single backwall echo to measure and separately display the thickness of the coating and the remaining metal, each adjusted for their correct material sound velocity. The Echo-to-Echo feature uses multiple backwall echoes to measure true metal thickness.
They also offer Gain Adjust, Auto Sensitivity Optimization, Differential Mode, and Hi-Low Alarm. The MG2-DL has a versatile file-based alphanumeric data logger that employs incremental, sequential, and 2-D grid file formats.

All models, including the MG2, are compatible with a complete line of easily interchangeable dual element transducers that vary in frequencies, diameters, and temperature capabilities. Large numerals on the electroluminescent backlit display make it easy to read thickness measurements from total darkness to bright sunshine. The splash proof, impact-resistant case with sealed keypad makes these gages durable tools in the harshest conditions. They offer basic features such as Min/Max Mode that measures and recalls the minimum thickness at a fast 20 readings per second, Freeze Mode to instantly capture critical thickness, and Zero Compensation Mode to ensure optimal transducer performance.
