ULTRASONIC THICKNESS MEASUREMENTS
Underwater ultrasonic thickness is a widespread technique, which allows you to measure the thickness of different materials, without requiring access to both sides of the material, such as classic measurement methods ( for example mechanical calipers ).
The ultrasonic thickness method ensures accuracy and speed in its results when applied. The reason why it should be done is to ensure the integrity of the ship’s materials and to comply with the permitted limits of international organisms for the thickness of the plates during their exposure to seawater.
The highly trained divers of Ippokampos Diving Co. carry out underwater ultrasonic thickness measurements. We are approved by all IACS members (ABS, DNV.GL, BV, LR, NKK, KR, RINA, RS CLASS).
Our company uses new Cygnus DIVE.The Cygnus DIVE uses the trusted Multiple Echo Technique firstdeveloped by Cygnus over 25 years ago. Hand-held, digital, ultrasonic thickness gauge for underwater use.
Measures metal thickness to determine wastage or corrosion underwater – accurately, quickly and withoutremoving surface coatings.
Cygnus DIVE multiple echo, single probe ultrasonic mean:
Coatings do not have to be removed – measures only the metal Thickness.
No grinding – minimum surface preparation.
Measures on rough, corroded surfaces.
Speed, accuracy and reliability.
No false readings – repeatable results. Easy to use – minimum operator training.
Greatly reduced inspection time and cost.
Measures on metal and some other materials 99,9 mm measurement range.
Waterproof and pressure tested to 300m depth.
