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
The new Elcometer 500 Coating Thickness Gauge for coatings on concrete has revolutionised the measurement of dry film thickness on concrete. You can now non-destructively measure the coatings on concrete and the gauge is now more accurate, faster and much easier than ever before.… Read More
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
Elcometer has revolutionised the NDT market with their new range of Ultrasonic Material Thickness Gauges. Features include: Ergonomic, rugged design, Accurate (1%) and easy to use menus, Firmware upgradeable through the Internet, High speed scan mode allowing 140+ readings per minute. The Elcometer MTG Ultrasonic Material Thickness Gauge range is ideal for measuring and recording material thickness up to 500mm and sound-velocity on a variety of substrates in a wide range of industrial applications. … Read More
When connected to the latest Elcometer 456 coating thickness gauge, the newly developed Elcometer 456 Ultra/Scan probe has a reading rate (in scan mode) in excess of 140 readings per minute – further enhancing the speed and accuracy of field based dry film coating thickness measurement on Ferrous (F) and non-Ferrous (NF) substrates.
The Elcometer 506 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.
