The gauge is placed horizontally on the surface of the pipe and the stylus is positioned into the base of the corrosion pit.
The gauge shows the pit depth compared with the actual pipe wall thickness It is essential importance to pipe coaters, enabling them to make a quick assessment of the condition of pipework.
Imperial units only.

Elcometer 119 Pipe Pit Gauge – Test Method
The Elcometer 119 Pipe Pit Gauge is placed on the edge along the pipe and the indicator arm is depressed until the stylus touches the bottom of the pit or crater. The depth of the pit is then indicated on the scale marked on the body of the gauge. This can be compared with the nominal wall thickness of the pipe. Data printed on the body of the gauge includes a 0 – 4.5-inch ruler, weight per foot and formulae which are likely to be of use to the pipe coater.
