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.
