New Elcometer MTG Ultrasonic Material Thickness Gauge

With a choice of calibration options, measurement modes – including high speed scan mode, display options and data-logging, the Elcometer MTG8 Ultrasonic Material Thickness Gauge is ideal for taking readings on a wide range of coated and uncoated materials and downloading data for further analysis and reporting.

The Elcometer MTG8 Ultrasonic Material Thickness Gauge is the top of the range gauge with all the features and functionality necessary for measuring material thickness and velocity on virtually any material and for a wide range of applications.

As well as all the features of the MTG2, MTG4 and MTG6, the MTG8 allows users to store into memory up to three calibrations. Once saved the user can select a calibration memory without the need to re-calibrate the gauge, ideal for users who are measuring a variety of materials or thicknesses. Using the gauge’s alpha-numeric function, calibration memories can be re-named to suit the calibration setting.

The New Elcometer MTG Ultrasonic Material Thickness Gauge has user definable upper and lower limits with audible and visual pass/fail warnings. Limits can be set for individual readings or for each batch. If a measurement is taken which falls outside set limits, the reading value and the limit icon turn red, the red LED flashes and the alarm beeps providing immediate indication of problem areas.

The New Elcometer MTG Ultrasonic Material Thickness Gauge has Differential Mode; once a user defined nominal thickness value is set, the gauge displays the measured thickness together with the variation from the set nominal value thus indicating areas of the material which are thinner or thicker than expected.

The Elcometer MTG8 Ultrasonic Material Thickness Gauge is the only gauge in the range to offer B-Scan, a time based, cross sectional 2D block, graphical view of the material under test, ideal for relative depth analysis. The zoom of the B-Scan reading can be set automatically or can be defined by the user to focus on areas of interest.

The New Elcometer MTG Ultrasonic Material Thickness Gauge can store 100,000 readings in up to 1,000 sequential or grid type batches. Using grid batching, readings are taken and stored in a grid, a template of the measurement area and where each reading is to be taken. If for any reason a reading cannot be taken in a particular location, due to a steel girder for example, the obstruction feature (Obst), allows the user to record this within the batch data.

Compatible with both ElcoMaster® Data Management Software and ElcoMaster® Mobile Apps, readings can be downloaded via USB or Bluetooth® to PC, iOS or Android™ devices for further analysis and reporting.

Features of the New Elcometer MTG Ultrasonic Material Thickness Gauge

  • Pulsed-Echo (P-E), Echo-Echo ThruPaint™ & Velocity (VM) measurement modes
  • 2-Point, 1-Point, Material, Velocity, Thickness Set and Factory calibration options
  • Three user programmable calibration memories
  • User selectable measurement rate; 4, 8, 16 readings per second

Main News in detail

New Elcometer 130 SSP Soluble Salt Profiler

The New Elcometer 130 SSP Soluble Salt Profiler provides fast and accurate measurement of the level and density of soluble salts – over 4 times faster than other Bresle equivalent methods.

The new Elcometer 130 SSP allows you to complete a Bresle equivalent test in just over two minutes. The multi-point conductivity sensors enable the Elcometer 130 SSP to accurately display salt concentration, showing exactly where the contamination lies and generating full colour salt density maps in 2D or 3D.

“Four Bresle equivalent readings in 2½ minutes”

Each filter paper is the size of four Bresle patches – the Elcometer 130 Soluble Salt Profiler not only displays the individual reading, but also provides four Bresle equivalent readings in just over two minutes.

View the Elcometer 130 SSP Bresle Patch Equivalence report.

“The new Elcometer 130 SSP doesn’t just measure the level of soluble salts” 

In addition to soluble salt levels (cleanliness) or conductivity, the Elcometer 130 SSP carries out a detailed analysis of the test area – providing an accurate salt density profile map, pinpointing areas of high contamination outside user defined limits.

“Accurate in all environments”

This new, easy to use, Elcometer 130 SSP has automatic temperature compensation ensuring accuracy in all climatic conditions. Impure water can be offset for accurate and repeatable readings.

“Each gauge is designed to last”

Robust, durable & water resistant, the new Elcometer 130 SSP is available with a 2 year manufacturer’s warranty; giving you peace of mind.

“Generate instant reports on your PC, Android™ or iOS mobile devices”

The Elcometer 130 SSP wirelessly transmits readings, statistics and batches via Bluetooth® or via USB straight into an inspection application or into ElcoMaster®, Elcometer’s Mobile App, for instant report generation at your desk or, using your mobile, in the field.

What you do with the collected data is just as important as taking the readings themselves.

Elcometer 506 Pull Off Adhesion Gauges

The Elcometer 506 Pull Off Adhesion Testers are lightweight, portable and easy-to-use adhesion gauges are available in analogue or digital versions and are suitable for measuring the pull-off adhesion of coatings up to 50MPa either on-site, or in the laboratory.

The design of the Elcometer 506 Pull Off Adhesion Tester ensures that a uniform force can be easily applied throughout the range by smoothly rotating the gauge’s crank handle, ensuring repeatable results to an accuracy of ±1%.

The Elcometer 506 Pull-Off Adhesion Tester quick connect coupling allows the simple attachment of 14.2mm, 20mm or 50mm diameter dollies which, together with a wide range of accessories, allows coating adhesion testing on flat, curved, thick and thin substrates – including metal, wood, concrete and other fibrous materials.

The Elcometer 506 Pull Off Adhesion Tester test head (actuator) has been designed to be small, ergonomic and lightweight – ideal for single handed testing of coating adhesion even in awkward or confined spaces.

Safe testing on vertical surfaces has also been considered. Using the magnetic clamp accessory the actuator is held securely – preventing accidental damage to the surrounding areas.

Elcometer 550 Non-Contact Powder Thickness Gauge

The Elcometer 550 offers the user an unrivalled approach to measuring uncured powder thicknesses – without touching the powder. Traditional pre-cure powder thickness measurement requires contact with the coating however, the Elcometer 550 – using proven third generation ultrasonic technology – allows coating thickness measurements to be taken before the powder is cured and without touching the surface; allowing accurate prediction of the final coating thickness.

The Elcometer 550 offers the user an unrivalled approach to measuring uncured powder thicknesses – without touching the powder. Traditional pre-cure powder thickness measurement requires contact with the coating however, the Elcometer 550 – using proven third generation ultrasonic technology – allows coating thickness measurements to be taken before the powder is cured and without touching the surface; allowing accurate prediction of the final coating thickness.

Features

By carefully controlling the thickness of powder applied to a product, you can minimise your powder usage and ensure the quality of your coating. As contact measurement solutions damage the finish and do not predict the cured coating thickness, measuring the powder thickness pre-cure requires a non-contact solution.

  • Accurately predicts the cured coating thickness within ± 5% of the reading or ±5μm
  • Ergonomic gun designed for comfort when taking multiple readings
  • Hand held sensor allows easy positioning of the gun for fast measurement
  • Large illuminated colour display with positioning graph to guide orientation of sensor probe
  • Tough aluminium case, ideal for testing in an industrial environment

Easy to Use

  • Easy to read, large colour display
  • Adjustable screen brightness for all test conditions
  • Ergonomic probe – ideal for continuous testing
  • Can be used straight out of the box with minimal set up time
  • On-screen guidance graph and handle LEDs help you orientate the probe sensor for fast, accurate measurements.

  • Can be used in accordance with ASTM D7378-Procedure C
  • Proven, 3rd Generation, airborne ultrasonic technology
  • User-programmable setup to account for varying powder shrinkage rates

Enhanced Technology

  • Measure thicknesses from 30 – 110μm
  • 1mm² measurement area – ideal for flat, curved and small surfaces
