Portable UTM Probes

Do you own or work in a company that could benefit from high-quality portable UTM probes? If so, you need to look no further than Cygnus Instruments, the leading manufacturer of ultrasonic thickness measurement equipment. To find out more about our range of products, please call us today on +1 410-267-9771.

Our Range of High-Quality Thickness Measurement Gauges

Here at Cygnus Instruments, we have developed digital multiple echo technology, which is utilized through our comprehensive range of portable UTM gauges. This technology allows users to obtain accurate thickness measurements through coatings and corrosion, and it is used in almost every industrial application around the world.

We manufacture and stock a wide range of portable UTM probes, each with different uses and features for various applications. Our range of products includes:

Surface Thickness Gauges

This range features our multiple echo technology which enables you to achieve an accurate metal thickness measurement to be obtained from one side only. A thickness measurement taken using this product can be obtained without the removal of protective coatings and it won’t damage test materials.

From Cygnus 1 Intrinsically Safe and Cygnus 2 Hands-Free to Cygnus 4 General Purpose and Cygnus 6+ Pro, we are sure to have the equipment you require. Whatever device you choose, you are assured of high quality and durability with our surface thickness gauges.

Underwater Thickness Gauges

Here at Cygnus Instruments, we have created a range of versatile underwater and subsea thickness measurement gauges. These are ideal for use by divers and engineers as they provide a simple and time-saving method of obtaining ultrasonic thickness measurements in underwater conditions.

This range of underwater thickness gauges consists of Cygnus Dive Underwater Gauge, Cygnus ROV Mountable, Cygnus Mini ROV Mountable, and Cygnus Underwater. Each device has been manufactured to the highest standards of quality and durability.

Ultrasonic Probes

To complement our range of ultrasonic thickness gauges, we offer a range of ultrasonic probes. The performance of any thickness gauge relies heavily on the quality of the probe and, at Cygnus Instruments, we have the best range of portable UTM probes.

It is essential to use the appropriate probe for the specific application, and we can help you choose which option works best. The probe frequency required will be determined by the minimum thickness of the material to be measured. However, the lower the frequency the more effective the ultrasound will be at penetrating corrosion and coatings.

In our range, we have single crystal probes for use with gauges measuring using the multiple echo technique. We also have twin crystal probes for use with gauges in echo to echo and single echo modes.

Measuring Modes Used by Our Portable UTM Gauges

An ultrasonic thickness gauge works by sending a short pulse of high-frequency sound through the material being measured. The thickness gauge then measures the time taken for an echo to be received from the back wall, thus determining the thickness of the material. In order to suit a wide variety of material testing applications, we have developed multiple measuring modes for our portable UTM probes; multiple echo, echo to echo, and single echo.

Multiple echo gives error checked, accurate metal thickness measurements through coatings up to 20mm thick. Echo to echo measures through paint (mas 0.5mm), making it ideal for testing painted metal with heavy back wall corrosion or pitting. Single echo is used for checking uncoated materials; metals with extreme corrosion; specific geometry; wide range of plastics.
