Coating vs Wall thickness measurement? Let the new CT-Gauge from Sonatest Ltd be the judge!Sonatest Ltd44, Milton Keynes, United Kingdom
Making precise wall and coating thickness measurements is fast and easy using the new Sonatest CT-Gage and CT-Gage DL (data-logging) ultrasonic thickness gauges. Not only do both models measure coating and wall thickness quickly and accurately, from only one side, but they automatically measure and eliminate any coating from wall thickness measurements, allowing users to locate the finest corrosion and pitting-without removing the coating.
Create and store 64 custom setups for all your common testing applications. Switching into the time based B-Scan view enables a cross section view of the material your inspecting. Enabling the high-speed scan function will give the user 50 readings per second!
Five user-selected operating modes are included: Coating On, Coating Off, Thru Coat and Coating Only. All measurements are temperature compensated. Minimum coating thickness is 0.0127mm allowing the gauge to precisely measure thin coatings with it's advanced waveform analysis technique. A large backlit graphic LCD features easy-to-read fonts, graphics and display codes which show all critical settings.
CT-Gage features include: auto probe zero, auto probe recognition, auto temperature compensation, and a stand alone coating only mode. The standard pulse-echo and thru-paint echo-echo modes are standard features.
The CT-Gauge Data-Logging model adds built-in memory, with an RS-232 output for transferring data to a Printer or PC. Data Files can be user-set for a "grid type" structure (data formatted in rows & columns) or a "sequential" file (all data appears in a single column). In addition, each file can be set to store "data only" or "data plus B-scan" graphic. The CT-Gage DL can store 16,000+ readings, with B-Scan captures and all gauges settings and features, or turn the graphics mode off and store over 210,000 readings!
