We have put together some useful information in answering some of your questions about the ultrasonic thickness tester gauge.
What is Ultrasound
Ultrasound is sound waves with frequencies higher than the upper audible limit of human hearing.
What is an Ultrasonic Thickness Tester Gauge
It determines the sample thickness by measuring the amount of time it takes for sound to traverse from the transducer through the material and back.
The ultrasonic thickness tester gauge then calculates the data based on the speed of the sound through the tested sample.
An ultrasonic thickness tester gauge has been manufactured to measure the thickness of a solid element.
A small probe called an ultrasonic transducer sends sound pulses through the material.
Ultrasonic thickness tester gauge measurement is non-destructive.
What Industries Use This Gauge
Marine, manufacturing, environment, engineering and many more.
What materials can the Ultrasonic Thickness Tester Gauge measure
It can measure the thickness of various good ultrasonic wave conductors such as:
Iron, Steel, Aluminium, Copper, Brass, Gold, Silver, Zinc, Tin, Glass, Plastic, Toughened Tile, and many more.
So, what are the advantages of using an ultrasonic thickness tester gauge
Designed to have the technique of being non-destructive.
Does not require access to both sides of the sample.
Easy to use, does not require laboratory conditions.
The software is calibrated to ensure high reliability, so you do not need to send the gauge away for calibration.
Can be easily calibrated by the user where and whenever necessary as it has its own built in calibration block.
Portable and handheld with a lanyard for easy handling.
Finally, there is no need to hire a third party to do the job.
Our OMGE029 is supplied with coupling paste, this allows good contact between the probe and the measured surface.
