The AlphaGage+ series is a range of hand-held ultrasonic thickness gauges available for corrosion, precision or combined for both.
The Sonatest AlphaGage+ series is definitely a key asset for inspectors, maintenance operators or QA technicians looking to measure essentially any engineering material thickness as it combines years of ultrasonic design and knowhow.
Packaged in an extremely rugged and ergonomic hand held enclosure, the AlphaGage+ is a versatile piece of equipment as it can be used to perform integrity assessment of metal steel works affected by erosion or corrosion processes as well as measure precisely the thickness of critical pieces of equipment which have very strict quality control requirements.
Echo to Echo and Coating Thickness Measurements
Many applications in the Corrosion thickness applications have painted surfaces on vessels, ship hulls, pipes, bridges, and tanks.
Wide thickness range using delay line probes
Aircraft manufacturers have very demanding specifications when it comes to non-destructively measuring the wall thickness of aircraft parts.
Paint on Various Substrates
Most conventional coating thickness gages using eddy current or magnetic induction or other magnetic techniques can easily and accurately measure the thickness of paint on metals such as that on an automotive hood. They cannot measure paint on non-metal materials such as plastic bumpers, composites, wood or concrete.
Thickness Logging Compliant with AlphaGage+
Wear rates can be calculated and used to estimate when the minimum allowable thickness will remain with the AlphaGage+
