New thickness/coating gauge NDT equipment

Sonatest Ltd44, Milton Keynes, United Kingdom

Giving you the full picture and full control.

Building on the earlier CT-Gage models launched earlier this year, the new CT-Gage DL+ thickness gauge now also offers an A-Scanning display. The A-Scan feature allows the operator to see the signal and adjust all gates and parameters whilst testing, giving full transparency to the operator in the application environment. The user can ensure the correct signal is being measured which is especially important where other problems such as pitting and delamination may be present, as well the basic thinning which is being measured.

In addition to these features precise wall and coating thickness measurements are fast, easy and accurate, from only one side. The CT-Gage DL+ automatically measures any coating and eliminates it’s influence on 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 you are inspecting. Enabling the high-speed scan function will give the user 50 readings per second!

The CT-Gage DL+ has 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 A-Scan captures and all gauges settings and features, or turn the graphics mode off and store over 210,000 readings!

Application environments include shipping, petro-chemical and infrastructure ie bridges, amongst others.
