Ultrasound Hull Thickness Surveys - Steel & Alloy

Hull Thickness Testing / Examination of Steel and Alloy construction

Save Money – No need to lift your vessel out of the water – We can measure the hull thickness with the boat afloat as long as we can get access to the important areas in the bilge spaces

Ultrasound examination of hulls to determine accurate plate / substrate thickness is undertaken with a Cygnus 4 multiple echo ultrasonic thickness gauge.

The Cygnus 4 ultrasonic thickness gage is small, tough and accurate.

Designed for the harshest of environments with a simple to use keypad and intuitive menus and a color LCD display which can be viewed in all lighting conditions.

The twin shot injection molded enclosure has a soft but durable TPE outer skin which is both comfortable and robust while the inner shell is strong, keeping the electronics totally sealed from the outside world. Having passed the stringent US Military Standard 810G environmental tests, this new housing represents toughness and reliability.

The Cygnus Multiple-Echo, single crystal probe, technology means you can measure through thick coatings and only the remaining metal thickness is displayed.

This gauge enables us to undertake numerous inspections without the removal of paint / corrosion present on the surfaces = Non Destructive Testing (NDT)

We are not only limited to determining the thickness of steel but can readily use the Cygus 4 multiple echo instrument on such as Aluminium (Alloy) and GRP if required – up to 20mm of thickness

Using our Cygnus 4 Multiple Echo Ultrasonic Gauge – European Marine Services can now measure steel / alloy plate thicknesses whilst the vessel is afloat – Saving you both time and money and slipway / lifting costs.

Surface Scaling / Corrosion and paint coatings are ignored
