Ultrasonic thickness gauges are a piece of equipment that is widely used for carrying out non-destructive testing of the thickness of materials. They can accurately perform this function while only having access to one side of the material making these tools useful for measuring pipes, ship hulls, storage tanks, etc. Because a wall thickness gauge is non-destructive, it can be used in potentially explosive environments.
A wall thickness gauge can be used to measure virtually any common engineering material and can even measure the thickness of plastics, composites, fiberglass, ceramics and glass. This means that no matter the circumstances, you should always get an accurate reading when using one of these devices. No cutting or sectioning is required in order to obtain a reading, so costs are kept to a bare minimum.
Wood, paper, concrete and foam products are generally considered unsuitable for conventional ultrasonic gauging as they transmit high-frequency sounds poorly. For anything else, a thickness measurement tool is the right choice.
At Cygnus Instruments, our range of ultrasonic thickness gauges all incorporate the market-leading Multiple-Echo Technique for which we are responsible for pioneering. Such a technique ensures accurate results as well as error-checked measurements provided by the wall thickness gauge. Such accuracy is assured through the use of a series of measurements, which can compensate for coatings of up to 20mm while providing accurate feedback.
For those wanting to get more out of their thickness measurement device, we also stock a range of PLUS+ models. These feature Single-Echo and Echo-Echo modes as well, providing even more options while out in the field. Our surface range of thickness gauges includes Intrinsically Safe which makes them ideally suited for potentially explosive environments.
In addition, they come with hands-free for rope access applications, a large LCD display for clear and precise feedback, linear data logging, simple menu operation and much more. Plus, every wall thickness gauge that we supply comes with a three-year warranty.

Not every surface is necessarily going to be found above water, and it’s not always practical to bring the surface to the thickness gauge. In such instances, an alternative solution must be sought such as an underwater thickness gauge specially designed to work while submerged. These thickness measurement tools work in much the same way as the conventional variant.
They are ideally suited for use by divers and engineers alike and serve as a way of saving time while obtaining measurements in underwater conditions.
Established in 1983, Cygnus Instruments has a proud history that has seen us revolutionize the industry with our proven Multiple-Echo technique. This technique has since become the industry standard for accurate measurement of material thickness. We’re completely committed to product development and continuously monitor trends to anticipate effective ways in which to develop our products further.
Every wall thickness gauge that we supply has been engineered to be both robust and simple to use. They can stand up to even the harshest environments making them perfect for industrial use where the exposure to impacts, water and harsh chemicals is likely.
With roots in marine inspection services, Cygnus Instruments are well-placed to facilitate the needs of our customers. Our focus on market research and product development underpins our success and is the reason why we’re the number one choice for a thickness measurement device. As a company, we’re ISO-9001 certified and hold intrinsically safe certifications (BASEEFA and CSA).
