Ultrasonic Thickness Gauge - Basic

A thickness gauge (sometimes called Ultrasonic Thickness Tester, Ultrasonic Meter , UT Gauge, Ultrasonic Metal thickness Gauge or simply Thickness Gauge) is used to measure the thickness of a material by sending ultrasonic waves through it and measuring the time it takes for the waves to travel through the material and reflect back. These gauges are commonly used in various industries, including manufacturing, construction, and maintenance, to assess the integrity of structures, pipelines, tanks, and other components.

Dakota Ultrasonics manufactures high-quality industrial UT thickness gauges for the petrochemical, aerospace, power generation, automotive, and other related industries. These gauges are designed for ease of use and their menu structure is easy to understand for a quick and reliable ultrasonic thickness reading.  With a wide variety of thickness gauge transducers to meet every application, ranging in diameter from 3/16, 1/4″ and 1/2″ with frequencies of 1MHz, 2.25MHz, 5MHz, 7.5MHz, and 10MHz, there is sure to be a transducer that fits your application.

All of the Basic Ultrasonic Thickness gauges are made from extruded aluminum and can handle the most extreme conditions. In addition these gauges come with a 5-year limited warranty.  In the Basic Line of gauges we offer the ZX-1, ZX-2, ZX-3 (Most Popular), ZX-5 and ZX-6 Series.  

These gauges are used to measure the remaining wall thickness of vessels, pipes, plates, beams, etc., all of these gauges are extremely easy to use.  They are made in the USA.
