Infrared Thermometers Infrared Thermometers Infrared Thermometers are used to measure the temperatures of humans without any contact. Measuring a person’s temperature can be done in several ways, using Infrared Thermometers is a quick and easy way to measure body temperature, compared with other traditional methods of taking human temperature. Infrared Thermometers may be used to reduce cross-contamination risk and minimise the risk of spreading diseases like Covid-19. Before Infrared Thermometers are used, it is important to understand the benefits, … Read More
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

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 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
