Dorchester based, Tritex NDT have launched their new Multigauge 5600 general purpose thickness gauge.
The new upgraded gauge, based on the already very popular original Multigauge 5600, has new features including a large modern colour display and an easy to use clear graphic menu. The gauge has been designed in line with Tritex’s concept of Simple, Accurate and Robust. Intuitive menus allow for easy navigation whilst the gauge has added features to improve performance.
The gauge utilizes the Multiple Echo technique to ignore coatings up to 6mm thick and just measures the metal substrate. No grinding or removal of the coatings is required, significantly reducing preparation time and ultimately saving both time and money when carrying out inspections. All probes have Intelligent Probe Recognition (IPR), which automatically adjusts settings in the gauge when connected, resulting in a perfectly matched probe and gauge for enhanced performance. Also, the Automatic Measurement Verification System (AMVS) ensures only true measurements are displayed, even on the most heavily corroded metals. An optional leather case protects the gauge even in the most harshest of environments.
Single crystal probes, which have a number of advantages when measuring on curved and corroded surfaces, are protected by a membrane ensuring the probe does not easily get damaged.
The new Multigauge 5600 is supplied as a complete kit, ready to use, with a 3 year warranty and free calibration for the life of the gauge.
