Product Description

Elcometer 211 Magnetic Coating Thickness Gauge - the "Banana" / Inspection gauge

Regarded as one of the most popular mechanical coating thickness gauges in the world, the Elcometer 211 Magnetic Coating Thickness Gauge – The “Banana” / Inspection Gauge, commonly referred to as the “Banana Gauge”, has proven to be a successful coating thickness gauge where the use of electronic instruments is difficult, eg. inflammable atmospheres in oil and gas production as well as for underwater* dry film coating thickness inspection.

  • Factory calibrated – with user calibration adjustment
  • Foils supplied to check calibration on site
  • Ideal for cold surfaces and underwater use
  • Small and portable with an accuracy ±5%
  • The “V” grooved base, ideal for pipeline inspection
  • Available in either Metric or Imperial versions, the Elcometer 211 measures coatings up to 6mm

* Underwater use voids the warranty and users should replace the gauges periodically


The Elcometer 211 can be used in accordance with the following Standards:

  • ISO 2178
  • ISO 2808-6A
  • ISO 2808-7A
  • AS 2331.1.3
