Olympus has announced the release of the 27MG ultrasonic thickness gauge, designed to take measurements from one side on internally corroded or eroded metal pipes and structures. The 12-oz., battery-operated unit is designed for one-handed operation.
Standard features include automatic probe recognition, auto zero compensation for measurements on hot surfaces, gain adjust for measurements on sound-attenuating materials such as cast metals, differential mode, high-low alarm settings, and a min./max. mode that recalls the minimum or maximum thickness at 20 measurements/sec.
The gauge comes standard with the D7910 dual-element transducer that enables inspectors to make thickness measurement in basic corrosion applications. For measurements on very thin or thick materials or small-diameter pipes, the company offers dual-element transducers.
