Ultrasonic testing is an NDT method in which beams of high-frequency sound waves are introduced into materials to determine the internal structure and other unseen characteristics. The most common method of ultrasonic testing, ultrasonic thickness measurement, is used when only one side of a test sample is accessible. Ultrasonic thickness gauges determine the thickness of a sample by measuring the amount of time it takes the sound waves to travel through the material and reflect back to the transducer.
This NDT method is used predominantly in the monitoring of corrosion on the interior of industrial pipework. Ultrasonic thickness gauges are also used in other industries such as aerospace and automotive manufacturing, where unseen internal corrosion and material thickness is a concern. Most of the samples that are tested are made from steel or other iron alloys. However, ultrasonic thickness gauges are also used to measure paint and coating thickness. They can also test glass, plastics, and ceramic composites.
At Berg Engineering, we have a wide selection of ultrasonic thickness gauges like the powerful DMS Go+ from GEIT. If you don’t need a full-featured device, we also carry more basic ultrasonic thickness gauges like the Krautkramer CL5 and the fully-upgradeable GE DM5E that can be expanded as you need.
We stock many transducers and other accessories that can be used on legacy Krautkramer ultrasonic thickness gauges. We also stock parts for newer models. Or, if you need to upgrade your older Krautkramer equipment, give us a call and we’ll help you get the model that has the features you want with the functionality that you know. We’ll help you find the ultrasonic thickness gauge that fits your needs.
