The Tritex Multigauge 5650 is a versatile ultrasonic thickness gauge which comes with separate probes for use on GRP and metal.
For use on metals the single-crystal multiple-echo principle is used to avoid triangulation errors and to provide accurate thickness gauging - all without the need to remove soundly adhering paint coatings.
A second twin-crystal 1 MHz probe is provided for gauging GRP and FRP composites.
The measurement range on metals 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 5650 gauge comes with a 13 mm (½ inch) 2.25 MHz probe for use on metal. This 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.
