Thickness Gage

January 28, 2009

The CT-Gage DL+ thickness gage offers an A-Scanning display, which allows the operator to see the signal and adjust all gates and parameters while testing, giving full transparency to the operator in the application environment. The operator can ensure the correct signal is being measured, which is especially important when other problems such as pitting and delamination may be present in addition to the basic thinning that is being measured.

The gage automatically measures any coating and eliminates its influence on wall thickness measurements, allowing operators to locate fine corrosion and pitting-without removing the coating. Sixty-four custom setups can be created and stored in the gage. Switching to the time-based B-Scan view enables a cross section view of the material being inspected.
