Ultrasonic Coating & Wall Thickness Gauge TI-CMXDL

The Check-Line TI-CMXDL accurately measures coating and wall thickness on a wide range of materials. Five selectable measuring modes enable the operator to precisely measure wall thickness, coating thickness and locate corrosion and pitting—without removing the coating.

Oversized graphic LCD is backlit and features an easy to navigate menu allowing quick access to gauge settings and options.

Five user-selected operating modes are included:

    1. Coating On : Measures wall thickness using Pulse-Echo. It separately displays wall & coating thickness.
    2. Coating Off: Measures wall thickness using Pulse-Echo. It displays wall thickness only.
    3. Temperature Compensated: Measures wall thickness using Pulse-Echo and automatically adjusts calibration to compensate for changes in material temperature.
    4. Thru-Coat: Measures wall thickness only using Echo-Echo. (coating is NOT included)
    5. Coating Only Mode (CT): (Coating Thickness) Measures from 0.0005 to 0.100 inches (0.013 to 2.540 mm). Range ‘will vary slightly depending on the coating.

    High Speed Scan Mode & B-Scan Mode

    Hi-Speed Scan ModeB-Scan Mode
    High Speed Scan ModeB-Scan Mode
    Scan Mode measures 64 times per second, displaying the max and min reading measured during the scan interval. Sample rate is 200/sec when coating measurement is off.  The B-Scan displays a time based cross section view of test material of the contour of the blind, or underside of a pipe or tank application. the B-Scan view draws at a rate of seven seconds per screen from right to left.
