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.

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.
