The MiniTest 3100 gauge is a small universal gauge designed for non-destructive coating thickness measurement that offers different posibilities for processing measuring values.
There is a variety of probes available that can be connected to the MiniTest 3100. To select the most suitable probe, the thickness of the coating to be measured as well as the thickness of the substrate and the geometry have to be taken into consideration. We offer you a range of probes suitable for standard as well as for special applications.
Using the replaceable probes, the MiniTest 3100 is able to perform coating thickness measurement on both steel and non-ferrous metals. For measurements on steel, the magnetic induction principle is used allowing measurement of all insulating coatings, e. g. paint, enamel etc., and non-ferrous metals on steel and ferrous metals. Probes working on the magnetic induction principle are referred to as F-probes. For measurements
of insulating coatings on non-ferrous metals, the eddy current principle is used. Probes working on this principle are referred to as N-probes.
