As part of a strategy to create a ‘Centre of Excellence’ in Non-Destructive Testing (NDT) equipment, Ashtead Technology has added the latest ultrasonic inspection technology to its fleet of rental instruments.
The ‘USM Go’ combines a thickness gauge and a flaw detector in one single lightweight instrument and is available for hire with optional thickness and flaw kits. This means that with just one inspection instrument NDT personnel can perform accurate and dependable thickness measurement and flaw detection. A further benefit is a reduction in operator training times.
Precise time-of-flight is indicated in μs and an Automatic Gate Threshold for the 2 gates ensures accurate, reproducible measurements; a Back Wall Echo Attenuator helps identify low amplitude reflections.
Small, lightweight, water, dust and shock proof, the USM Go is able to run for up to 6h on internal batteries.
