Elcometer 236-2 DC HD
Elcometer 236-2 DC HD
The Elcometer 236 DC Holiday Detector The premature corrosion of a substrate is often due to the failure of its coating. Major causes of failure are flaws in the finished coating, these include pinholes, holidays, inclusions, thin spots and bubbles. The Elcometer 236’s convenient carry case allows the probe handle and accessories to be attached to the front making the Elcometer 236 ideal for field, site or laboratory nspection. Each unit provides the user with complete control on Voltage and Sensitivity settings. The Elcometer 236 minimizes the risk of additional damage to a coating and avoids the danger of coating popping off the surface which can occur with some high Voltage systems.

Fischer MP30 Deltascope
Fischer MP30 Deltascope

DELTASCOPE MP30 is used to measure non-ferrous metal coatings (e.g., chromium, copper, zinc, etc.) and paint, enamel or plastic coatings on iron and steel.

The auto averaging mode is used to reduce the effect of surface roughness on the measurement data range. The mean value of an arbitrary number of readings is stored as a single measurement.

Outlier rejection can be enabled to assure the validity of a measurements series statistical evaluation by eliminating outlier measurements which may be caused by faulty probe placement.

The additional matrix measurement mode enables simple storing of associated measurement data by respective data block (according to specific feature), allowing individual measurements to be made a different times. This measurement mode is ideally suited for applications in the steel and automotive

Tinker & Rasor AP/W Holiday Detector
Tinker & Rasor AP/W Holiday Detector

The Tinker & Rasor Model AP/W Holiday Detector is a completely transistorized, portable electrical inspection instrument. Adaptable for use on both large and small diameter piping as well as flat surfaces when such surfaces are coated with a high electrical resistant material and the surface beneath the coating is electrically conductive.

Tinker & Rasor Model M/1
Tinker & Rasor Model M/1

The Model M/1 Holiday Detector is a highly sensitive device designed to locate holidays (pin holes, voids, etc.) in thin film protective coating of relatively high electrical resistance when such films are applied to the surface of material of low electrical resistance. In these applications, such as painted metal surfaces, the Model M/1 Holiday Detector will locate these points very accurately with an audible signal.
