The Tritex Multigauge 5600 is a simple, robust ultrasonic thickness gauge which is ideal for small craft surveyors working with metal craft, tanks and other fittings
The Tritex 5600 uses the single-crystal multiple-echo principle to avoid triangulation errors and to provide accurate thickness gauging of all commonly used marine metals - all without the need to remove soundly adhering paint coatings.
The measurement range is determined by the probe frequency. Higher frequency probes are better for measuring thin and wasted sections but larger and low frequency probes work better on heavily corroded metals.
The Tritex 5600 comes with a 13 mm (½ inch) 2.25 MHz probe which is ideal for general purpose use, but other probes can be supplied as a no-cost option.
A datalogging version is also available.
Built in Dorchester, UK, Tritex gauges come with a three year manufacturer's warranty and free annual calibration for the life of the gauge. Some gauge options may be upgraded after purchase. Please enquire for further information.
All Tritex gauges are manufactured to, and comply with, the new standard of manufacturing Ultrasonic Thickness Gauges – BS EN 15317:2013. This standard covers the characterisation and verification of ultrasonic thickness measuring equipment to ensure they meet certain criteria of performance and build quality.
