Dorchester based, Tritex NDT have launched their new Multigauge 5650 Surveyor thickness gauge. The new gauge, based on the already very popular original Multigauge 5600, has new features including the option to simply exchange the probe and the gauge automatically switches to single echo mode for measuring GRP, plastic or uncoated metal. The gauge also measures metal thickness through coatings of up to 20mm thick, to give the same high standard of performance as the Multigauge 5600. In addition, either probe can also be used in echo – echo mode, if required, by easily selecting the option from the keypad during measurement, negating the need for special probes.

The gauge has a large modern colour display and an easy to use clear graphic menu. It 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.

For metal measurement, the gauge utilises the Multiple Echo technique to ignore coatings up to 20mm 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) used with multiple echo ensures only true measurements are displayed, even on the most heavily corroded metals. An optional leather case protects the gauge in even the most harsh environments.

Only single crystal probes are used, which have a number of advantages when measuring on curved and corroded surfaces. The new Multigauge 5650 is supplied as a complete kit, ready to use, with a 3 year warranty and free calibration for the life of the gauge.
