Material Thickness Gauge - Elcometer

The ultrasonic material thickness gauges of Elcometer can measure the material thickness and sound velocity of coated and uncoated surfaces, has been designed specifically to be easy to use, calibrate, take readings and create inspection reports. With a wide range of measurement modes including: Pulsed Echo (PE), Echo Echo ThruPaint™ (EE) and Velocity Mode (VM), and a wide range of intelligent dual element transducers, the new ultrasonic thickness gauges can measure the material thickness of virtually any material such as metals, plastics, glass, epoxies and ceramics. From a steel thickness gauge to a gauge which ignores the thickness of the coating, Elcometer has a complete range of ultrasonic thickness gauges to meet your specific requirements.

Available models

With automatic transducer recognition which ensures  correct probe identification even when the transducer is changed, a measurement rate of 4Hz (4 readings per second) and integral zero disc ensuring maximum accuracy of ±1%, the MTG2 is ideal for taking basic ultrasonic thickness measurements.

The MTG2 is supplied complete with 5MHz, ¼” transducer and is pre-calibrated for measuring on steel only with a thickness range of up to 500mm (20”) in Pulsed-Echo (P-E) mode.

Compatible with ElcoMaster® software, individual readings can be downloaded via USB to PC or similar device for further analysis.

With a choice of calibration options and measurement modes, the MTG4 is ideal for taking readings on a wide range of coated and uncoated materials.

As well as all the features of the MTG2, the MTG4 has two calibration options. Using an uncoated sample of test material of a known thickness, the gauge can be calibrated using 1-Point calibration. Alternatively, the user can select one of 39 pre-set materials stored within the gauge including; aluminium, steel, stainless steel, cast iron, plexiglass, PVC, polystyrene and polyurethane.

Measurement Mode

Echo-Echo ThruPaint™ (E-E) measurement mode enables readings to be taken on coated materials with a thickness range up to 20.00mm (0.787”).  In Echo-Echo ThruPaint™ mode, the coating thickness is ignored and the material thickness from the top surface of the material to the material density boundary is displayed.

Data Output

Compatible with ElcoMaster® software, individual readings can be downloaded via USB to PC or similar device for further analysis.

With a choice of calibration options, measurement modes – including high speed scan mode, display options and data-logging, the MTG6 is ideal for taking readings on a wide range of coated and uncoated materials and downloading data for further analysis and reporting.

As well as all the features of the MTG2 & MTG4, the MTG6 has additional calibration options; 2-Point, Velocity and known Thickness Value.

Measurement Mode

The MTG6 offers Velocity Mode (VM) which is ideal for determining the homogeneity of a material/alloy and the correct velocity of a material for calibration.

Using Scan Mode, readings can be taken at a rate of 16Hz (16 readings per second) over a large surface area.  When the transducer is lifted off the surface, the average, lowest and highest thickness value is displayed making scan mode ideal for checking a sample’s overall uniformity. 

Display Mode

With a user definable display, users can choose to view readings, statistical information, bar graph - an analogue representation of the current reading together with the highest (Hi) , lowest (Lo); and average (x), reading or a run chart; a trend graph of the last 20 readings.

Data Logging & Data Output

The MTG6 has a single batch gauge memory and can store up to 1,500 readings. Compatible with both ElcoMaster® and ElcoMaster® Mobile Apps, readings can be downloaded via USB or Bluetooth® to PC, iOS or Android™ devices for further analysis and reporting.

 

The MTG8 is the top of the range gauge with all the features and functionality necessary for measuring material thickness and velocity on virtually any material and for a wide range of applications.

As well as all the features of the MTG2, MTG4 and MTG6, the MTG8 allows users to store into memory up to three calibrations. Once saved the user can select a calibration memory without the need to re-calibrate the gauge, ideal for users who are measuring a variety of materials or thicknesses.  Using the gauge’s alpha-numeric function, calibration memories can be re-named to suit the calibration setting.

Statistics

The MTG8 has user definable upper and lower limits with audible and visual pass/fail warnings. Limits can be set for individual readings or for each batch.  If a measurement is taken which falls outside set limits, the reading value and the limit icon turn red, the red LED flashes and the alarm beeps providing immediate indication of problem areas.

Display Mode

The MTG8 has Differential Mode; once a user defined nominal thickness value is set, the gauge displays the measured thickness together with the variation from the set nominal value thus indicating areas of the material which are thinner or thicker than expected.

The MTG8 offers B-Scan, a time based, cross sectional 2 dimensional graphical view of the material under test, ideal for relative depth analysis. The zoom of the B-Scan reading can either be set to automatic or can be defined by the user to focus on areas of interest.

Data Logging

The MTG8 can store 100,000 readings in up to 1,000 sequential or grid type batches. Using grid batching, readings are stored in a spreadsheet type format. The Obst feature, allows the user to record an obstruction within the grid.

Data Output

Compatible with ElcoMaster®, PC & Mobile App, readings can be downloaded via USB or Bluetooth® to PC, iOS or Android™ devices for further analysis and reporting.
