Ultrasonic Thickness Gauges
Advantages of wall thickness measurement with a wall thickness gauge
With a wall thickness gauge, you determine the wall thicknesses of objects that cannot be measured with a micrometer due to their geometry or location. In addition to complex applications, wall thickness gauges are of course also suitable for simple, precise measurements in easily accessible places. The wall thickness measuring devices found here can be divided into two subcategories.
Ultrasonic wall thickness gauges
Ultrasonic thickness gauges are designed to measure thickness of materials from one side using ultrasonic sound waves. When an ultrasonic wave is sent through the material, this signal is reflected by the back wall of the material and received by the wall thickness gauge. The delay between sending and receiving the signal can be used to calculate the wall thickness of the material. Common applications where ultrasonic thickness gauges are used are measuring corrosion on ship hulls or inside pipes from the outside. Other common applications are measurement of wall thickness of plastic and glass bottles and metal cans or containers. Ultrasonic thickness gauges can be used for all kinds of quality control or inspection purposes.
Steel and most other metals are suitable for measurement with a wall thickness gauge, but other materials such as glass, some plastics and even rubber can be measured as well with Checkline Europe's ultrasonic thickness gauges.
Magnetic wall thickness gauges
Magnetic wall thickness measurement has a measuring probe on one side and a small steel ball on the other side of the material. With this method, the wall thickness measuring device can be used on all non-magnetic materials such as glass, plastic, ceramics, non-ferrous metals and much more. be used. It is particularly practical here that no specific calibration must be carried out for the respective material.
