Why Ultrasonic Thickness Measurement or NDT in the Mining Industry is so Important

posted in: Blog, News | 0

Dangerous, corrosive, erosive – these are some of the words to describe the mining industry.  To add to this, mechanical failure in the mining industry can have extremely serious consequences, so it is vital that the operating health of plant systems and components are tested regularly to ensure the highest levels of safety, reliability, productivity and profitability. Mining equipment is usually under constant operational stress because of continuous use and the weight of the materials involved.  Ultrasonic Testing (UT) is … Read More

News: Changes to the Elcometer 224 Digital Surface Profile Gauge

Since the launch of the Elcometer 224 Digital Profile Gauge in 2012, many questions and queries have been received regarding the correct use of the gauge. The correct measurement technique is for the user to usually take 10 or more readings on the profiled surface and record the mean/average (x̅) value which gives the peak-to-valley height. Due to the way the Elcometer 224 was designed, however, it is often wrongly assumed that a single measurement will provide the surface profile … Read More

Electro Magnetic Induction vs Hall Effect – Choosing the correct DFT gauge

Electro Magnetic Induction vs Hall Effect – Choosing the correct DFT gauge All DFT gauges are not created equal, that is why when comparing different instruments from different suppliers it is always a good exercise to check that you are comparing apples with apples; and that where possible, you are comparing similar technologies. Making sure that the coating thickness gauge that you have is using the same technology as other gauges from other manufacturers, is key to choosing the right … Read More

Elcometer 3000 Motorised Clemen Hardness Tester

The Elcometer 3000 Motorised Clemen Hardness Tester is a robust and accurate instrument for evaluating the resistance to scratching of a coated surface. The sample can be metal, wood, glass, plastic or other hard materials. A tool is fitted with an hemispherical tip of 1mm diameter (standard), lowered gradually on to the sample surface which is then pulled linearly 60mm. As the sample is pulled the tool lowers automatically on to the sample, moves along the sample and gently rises up at … Read More

New Elcometer 130 SSP Soluble Salt Profiler

November 2015

The NEW Elcometer 130 SSP Soluble Salt Profiler is the first gauge on the market to provide a 2D and 3D profile reading of salt distribution on a surface. It effectively gives you “salt goggles” to determine peaks of salt which will ultimately be the areas of concern. The NEW Elcometer 130 Soluble Salt Profiler produces Bresle equivalent readings faster and more accurately.… Read More
