Ultrasonic Thickness Gauges for NDT - Their uses & why.


Ultrasonic Thickness Gauge TG110-DL Testing material thickness using NDT
Ultrasonic Thickness Gauge

Ultrasonic Thickness Gauges for NDT are a vital piece of equipment for so many different industries, including aerospace, oil & gas, automotive and many manufacturing industries.


Non-Destructive Testing (NDT) is an optimum way of testing components, panels & for checking the safety & conformity of components. A non-destructive method is a way of testing, as the name suggests in a non-destructive way. Other destructive methods of testing an item would be by cutting it open to manually measure the thickness or checking for corrosion & pitting, which is not cost-effective & if required for every item is obviously not possible.


Using a transducer & coupling agent, the thickness of a material can be measured from one side only where access is either difficult or impossible. Through-paint models are also available to take this reading of the substrate only, not including the coating.


Can measure thickness as low as 0.5559mm.


Our most popular Ultrasonic Thickness Gauge is the Nova TG110-DL. https://www.advancedndt.co.uk/nova-tg110-ultrasonic-thickness-gauge


This gauge allows for fully adjustable velocity for perfect calibration for your material type. Other features include data logging, single and dual point calibration capability, High & Low Alarms, High-Speed Scan mode, and an included time encoded 'B' Scan.


One of the most outstanding uses for the TG110DL is to assess material thinning due to corrosion or erosion, including many types of pitting action. The Nova TG110DL Thickness Tester has proven ability to handle an exceptional range of adverse gauging conditions such as rough surfaces, contours and high temperatures, even tough-to-penetrate materials like cast iron.


A perfect gauge for checking products conform to standards in a non destructive way.
