This hand held, multi-echo ultrasonic thickness gauge measures metal thickness to determine wastage and/or corrosion. Accepted by the major classification societies and bodies, it is easy to use and has a lightweight, ergonomic design. A major feature of this instrument is that it does not require the removal of surface coatings to gather thickness measurement readings.
