Whatever the application, Tritex have an Ultrasonic Thickness gauge suited specifically for it. The rugged designs not only look good but are also durable. All probes have IPR (intelligent probe recognition), which automatically adjusts settings in the gauge at the same time as transmitting recognition data - the result is a perfectly matched probe and gauge for enhanced performance. That's not all; the AMVS (automatic measurement verification system) ensures only true measurements are displayed, even on the most heavily corroded metals. Housed in purpose designed cases and incorporating Triple Echo and Coating Plus+ to completely ignore coatings, Tritex Ultrasonic Multigauges are the choice for the future...

The Multigauge 5600 is a simple, robust ultrasonic thickness gauge designed for most common thickness gauging applications. The easy to use keypad allows operator interface whilst the bright LCD display can be used in all light conditions. The moulded soft rubber surround feels comfortable, looks good and provides extra protection against knocks and scrapes.

About Triple Echo Thickness Gauges

All Ultrasonic Thickness Gauges should be calibrated to the velocity of sound of the material being measured. Coatings have a different velocity of sound than metal and it is important they are not included in the measurement. Triple Echo ensures all coatings are completely eliminated from the measurement.

How the Triple Echo Thickness Gauges Work

A transmitted ultrasound pulse travels though both the coating and the metal and reflects from the back wall. The returned echo then reverberates within the metal, with only a small portion of the echo travelling back through the coating each time. The timing between the small echoes gives us the timing of the echoes within the metal, which relate to the metal thickness. The returned echoes need not be consecutive as the gauge will interpret them automatically and calculate the thickness. A minimum of three echoes are checked each time. This is referred to as the Automatic Measurement Verification System (AMVS).
