Tritex Multigauge 6000 Probe Holder With Gel

Tritex Drone Wireless Gel Dispenser

Tritex NDT have now launched a new wireless Gel Dispenser for use with their popular Multigauge 6000 Drone Thickness Gauge. The Gel Dispenser is controlled wirelessly from Tritex Communicator software to dispense a pre-determined quantity of gel onto the probe face just prior to taking measurements. Ultrasound does not travel in air and so it is important that the probe has good coupling to the surface when metal thickness is being measured.

The drone gauge has already proved to be extremely popular due to the excellent performance through coatings in difficult to reach areas. The addition of the Tritex Gel Dispenser means that performance in enhanced even further because couplant can now be applied at just the right time. The dispenser holds 70ml of couplant, which is plenty for a full survey.

Tritex NDT Sponsor IIMS Inland Waterways Training Event

Tritex NDT were pleased to be invited to sponsor the International Institute of Marine Surveyors first Inland Waterways Training Event. The program was hosted by P & S Marine at their boatyard in Watford and there was a large attendance proving this was a very popular event. The program included a practical welding session as well as surveying a narrow boat with Ultrasonic Thickness Gauges supplied by Tritex NDT. The results were later evaluated and discussed with regard to compiling a report.

During the inspection it was found that a number of areas on the vessel had been overplated. The Multigauge 5600 and Multigauge 5650 Surveyor Thickness gauges gave reliable readings in all areas of the vessel, in some cases through extremely thick coatings.

Multigauge 6000 Drone Thickness Gauge

Dedicated Drone Ultrasonic Thickness Gauge Transmits Data up to 500 Metres

Dorchester based, Tritex NDT have launched a new ultrasonic metal thickness gauge specifically designed for mounting onto drones for high level inspections. The gauge uses multiple echo to completely ignore coatings up to 20mm thick and the single crystal probe ensures accurate readings on curved surfaces, such as storage tanks and pipelines. Remaining metal thickness and corrosion levels can be quickly and more easily checked without the need for scaffolding or rope access.


The Multigauge 6000 Drone Ultrasonic Thickness Gauge OEM transmits real time measurements wirelessly up to a distance of 500 metres using its integrated RF transmitter. The readings are displayed and stored on dedicated Communicator software within templates in a grid or string format.


The gauge weighs just 45 grams and the plastic probe weighs only 15 grams. “Keeping weight down to a minimum without losing performance has been essential,” says Jon Sharland, Sales Manager at Tritex NDT Ltd. “I believe we are leading the field in this new application. We have already had a number of successful installations over the past three years and now we are pleased to have the first commercially available dedicated drone thickness gauge, which has been developed in response to customer’s feedback and requirements.”


Dry couplant membranes reduce the weight further as couplant, and a means to deploy it, are not required. The Multigauge 6000 Drone Ultrasonic Thickness Gauge is supplied as a complete kit for OEM installation onto drones. It accepts an input of 8Vdc – 35Vdc for complete versatility.


The probe has Intelligent Probe Recognition (IPR), which automatically adjusts settings in the gauge when connected, resulting in a perfectly matched probe and gauge for enhanced performance. Also, the Automatic Measurement Verification System (AMVS) used with multiple echo ensures only true measurements are displayed, even on the most heavily corroded metals.


Tritex NDT is a leading manufacturer of thickness gauges. All gauges are designed and manufactured in the United Kingdom and supplied as complete kits, ready to use, with a 3 year warranty and free annual calibration for the life of the gauge.

Multigauge 5300 GRP Thickness Gauge

Tritex NDT give presentation at the International Institute of Marine Surveyors.

Jon Sharland recently gave a presentation at the IIMS Large Yacht & Small Craft Athens Training Event via video conferencing. The talk covered the technology behind multiple echo thickness gauges and new developments by Tritex NDT for the inspection of GRP in yachts and small craft. At the end of the technical presentation various gauges were discussed such as the new Multigauge 5650 Surveyor Thickness Gauge for steel and GRP measurements and the Multigauge 5300 GRP Thickness Gauge for just GRP measurement. A group of nearly 20 surveyors met in Greece with additional surveyors joining online for the conference.

Multigauge Surveyor Ultrasonic Thickness Gauge

New Multigauge 5650 Surveyor Gauge

We have launched our new Multigauge 5650 Surveyor thickness gauge. The new gauge, based on the already very popular original Multigauge 5600, has new features specifically designed for marine surveyors but the gauge can be used for other applications as well. The Surveyor thickness gauge can be used with existing standard soft faced probes for measuring metal thickness through coatings, up to 20mm thick, to give the same high standard of performance as the Multigauge 5600. However, by simply swapping the probe, the gauge automatically switches to GRP measurement mode using single echo. This can be used to assess the condition of GRP when checking for osmosis and delaminations. Either probe can also be used in echo – echo mode, if required, by easily selecting the option from the keypad during measurement. No special probes are needed for echo – echo mode.

The gauge has a large modern colour display and an easy to use clear graphic menu. It has been designed in line with Tritex’s concept of Simple, Accurate and Robust. Intuitive menus allow for easy navigation whilst the gauge has added features to improve performance.

For metal measurement, the gauge utilises the Multiple Echo technique to ignore coatings up to 20mm thick and just measures the metal substrate. No grinding or removal of the coatings is required, significantly reducing preparation time and ultimately saving both time and money when carrying out inspections. All probes have Intelligent Probe Recognition (IPR), which automatically adjusts settings in the gauge when connected, resulting in a perfectly matched probe and gauge for enhanced performance. Also, the Automatic Measurement Verification System (AMVS) used with multiple echo ensures only true measurements are displayed, even on the most heavily corroded metals. An optional leather case protects the gauge in even the most harsh environments.

Only single crystal probes are used, which have a number of advantages when measuring on curved and corroded surfaces. The new Multigauge 5650 is supplied as a complete kit, ready to use, with a 3 year warranty and free calibration for the life of the gauge.


New Multigauge 5700 Datalogger gauge

Tritex-NDT-Multigauge-5700-Datalogger-LTritex NDT are pleased to announce the launch of the new Multigauge 5700 Datalogger gauge which stores measurements on the gauge in a grid or string format. The results are then transferred to a PC or laptop using a RF transceiver. This means that the gauge can also be used for remote datalogging applications. The gauge has the same features and high level of performance as the Multigauge 5600 thickness gauge, but with the added benefit of being able to store measurements on the gauge.
