Ultrasonic Thickness Guage - Racing
Dakota Ultrasonics PR9 Racing Engine Thickness Gauge
Specially Designed for the racing industry
The PR-9 sonic tester is a dedicated design for the racing industry. It is commonly used to measure the thickness of cylinder walls, head ports, decks, chassis tubing, body panels, and windshields. An additional benefit is the probe’s dual-element style. It can locate blind surface corrosion or deterioration on the blind surface in the water jacket area before boring a cylinder or port. The high-speed scan feature takes 100 measurements per second to save time when scanning a complete cylinder. Drag the probe from the bottom of the cylinder, at a given clock position in the cylinder, up to the deck area to locate the minimum thickness found. The user can find the exact location of the minimum thickness.
The PR-9 has three material calibration options (single point, two-point, and target velocity) for increased accuracy. Cylinder wall mapping software available for manually creating reports. Finally, our 5-year limited warranty indicates how we feel about the quality.
Dakota Ultrasonics PR-8V Sonic Tester
For the Racing Industry
The PR-8V is our most advanced sonic tester designed for the racing industry. It’s most commonly used to measure the thickness of cylinder walls, head ports, decks, chassis tubing, body panels, and windshields. The time-based B-Scan feature of the PR-8V displays a cross-section view to see the profile/contour of the back surface while scanning cylinders.
Standard (Pulse-Echo mode) for use with a variety of common material types and variable gain options (v-low, low, medium, high, v-high) in 3dB increments (40 to 52dB range), for increased penetration or resolution. Use the Multi-Mode (Echo-Echo mode) feature to measure chassis tubing with or without paint and coatings. Built-in automatic gain control and selectable gain options (low, medium, and high).
A variety of calibration options, a common material list, the ability to store 64 custom setups, high-speed scanning, and alarm options are a few of the features in the PR-8V. The PR-8V is equipped with a 4GB internal SD memory card, selectable GRID or ENGINE data structures, and used in conjunction with our PC & OSX software for your reporting needs.
