The PosiTector UTG Thickness Gauge measures the wall thickness of materials such as steel, plastic and more using ultrasonic technology. Ideal for measuring the effects of corrosion or erosion on pipes, tanks or any structure where access is limited to one side. The multiple echo (UTG-ME) Thru-Paint models measure the metal thickness of a painted structure without having to remove the coating.
This model is available with corrosion probe or multiple-echo probe
Large, easy-to-read, graphics LCD with multilingual support
Uses alkaline or rechargeable batteries (built-in charger)
Min Scan - measurement rate of up to 20 readings per second with onscreen min and max for quick inspection over a large area
Statistics - continually displays/updates average, standard deviation, min/max thickness and number of thickness readings
HiLo alarm audibly and visibly alerts when measurements exceed user-specified limits
Every stored measurement is date and time stamped
Software updates via web keep your gage current
Multiple measurement download/transfer options:
USB port for fast, simple connection to a PC and to supply continuous power. USB cable included
USB mass storage - stored readings and graphs can be accessed using universal PC/ Mac web browsers or file explorers. No software required
PosiTector.net - a free web-based application offering secure storage of thickness readings
PosiSoft Software Compatible - Continue using the familiar legacy software you have used for years. Available as a free download.
Screen Capture -record and save image into USB flash memory for record keeping and review

Step 2: Select Probe Style
Measures the wall thickness of materials such as steel, plastic and more. Ideal for measuring the effects of corrosion or erosion on tanks, pipes, or any structure where access is limited to one side
5 MHz dual element transducer with wear resistant PEEK probe tip
Automatic V-Path compensation for thin materials
Features Thru-Paint capability to quickly and accurately measure the metal thickness of a painted structure without having to remove the coating. The most accurate method to measure the remaining wall thickness of a painted structure because it automatically disregards the coating, lowering inspection time and expense. Also ideal for measuring on sandblasted materials or other applications requiring a durable wear face.
5MHz contact probe with wear resistant Alumina probe tip
Multiple Echo technique averages 3 or more echoes for accurate and reliable readings
Most accurate method to measure remaining wall thickness of a painted structure because it automatically disregards the coating, lowering inspection time and expense.
Toggle easily between:
Multiple Echo mode to eliminate coating thickness
Single Echo mode to detect pits and flaws, and to increase the measurement range
