Through-coating Ultrasonic Thickness gauge

Ultrasonic Thickness Gauge UT-1M is used for operational non-destructive testing of the thickness of products with one-way access, at the moment this method is the most common in the world for solving such tasks.

The method is based on the property of materials to conduct ultrasound, ultrasonic wawes are excited with the piezoceramic plate in the transducer and penetrates into the material through the couplant, then reflected from the bottom surface of the tested sample, and returns to the transducer. Based on the obtained sound transit time in the material, the device calculates the thickness in accordance with the velocity of propagation of ultrasonic waves in the test sample. The thickness value is displayed on the device’s display, the measurement process takes about 1 second.

NOVOTEST Lab is your real laboratory in your pocket! Optionally with UT-1M (Lab) model only!

The main advantages of the Ultrasonic Thickness Gauge UT-1M:

To measure products in a wide range with one transducer, unlike most similar devices, the Ultrasonic Thickness Gauge UT-1M has a gain control function, which allows operator, for example, with a 5 MHz transducer, to measure steel products in the range from 0.5 to 500 mm and more. Using other probes the full measurement range is up to 1500 mm for steel.

To visualize the product profile, if necessary not only point measurement, but also scanning, a B-scan is implemented in the device, which allows the user to visually see thinning and thickening of the wall of the testing object.
Also, for ease of use, the device has an automatic defect alarm function, its meaning is that the operator can select boundary thickness values ​​(minimum and maximum) when crossing the values ​​of which the device will signal through the speaker, and also give a visual signal.

Ultrasonic Thickness Gauge UT-1M has the ability to save transducer’s parameters (delay line, V-correction, etc.), and also has reference values ​​for the wave velocities of many often measured materials stored in devices’s memory, which allows the user to blindly (without reference data and a sample material for calculating speed) to measure various products with one-way access.

Ultrasonic Thickness Gauge UT-1M is made in an ergonomic shockproof case, the silicone cover of which prevents the device from malfunctioning in case of a dropped down to floor or ground. Also, the device can be used in extreme climatic conditions, the temperature range of operating conditions is from -20 to +50 ° С.

The device allows user to record the measurement results in the archive of the device, and subsequently transfer them to a PC using special software
