Ultrasonic Thickness Gauges MX-1 MX-2 MX-5DL
Thickness Gauges for measuring the thickness of homogeneous materials
What is wall thickness measurement?
The Ultrasonic Thickness Measurement is used to determine the thickness of a material, for example the wall of a tank or pipe.
Detecting material defects, corrosion and inclusions with ultrasound
The Ultrasonic Measuring Technique is used to measure the thickness of steel and all other metals, glass and homogenous plastics and to detect material flaws, corrosion and pits. The main advantage of ultrasonic measurement over traditional methods is that an ultrasonic thickness tester can work with access to only one side of the material being measured. Ultrasonic gauges are used as a thickness tester in the automotive, aircraft, machine and tool industry and especially as a corrosion tester to check the residual thickness of tanks and tubes.
Our ultrasonic wall thickness gauges
The ultrasonic thickness gauge series MX-1, MX-2, MX-3 and MX-5DL work with dual-element (transmit and receive) transducers, which not only measure the thickness of materials of 0.7 mm and up, but are as well suitable to detect material flaws, corrosion and pits. A wide selection of dual-element transducers for any material, geometry and different applications is available. The correct setting of the correct sound velocity, which depends solely on the material, is significant to a successful measurement.
MX-1 allows storing one sonic velocity via PC.
MX-2 is a fixed velocity gauge that requires no special training to operate. It contains eight sonic velocities of common materials and 2 sonic velocities that the user can set via PC.
MX-5DL has the ability to calibrate to a variety of different materials using a one or two-point calibration option or with a mechanically measured thickness. This is very important when high accuracy of measurement is requested. The Scan mode helps to determine the minimum material thickness.
MX-5DL additionally has an automatic data logger with a capacity of 1000 readings, a serial RS232 interface for data transfer and evaluation on a PC. An Alarm mode and a Differential mode is also included.
