Ultrasonic Thickness Gauge

Ultrasonic thickness testing equipment can be used to help mitigate the impact of corrosion by identifying metal thickness wear and tear before it leads to damage of critical metalwork. Corrosion can be very costly to a business if left unchecked by leading to costly repairs, prolonged maintenance, material losses, poor performance and, if left untreated, failure. PortaGauge will be your ideal Non-Destructive Testing solution for testing metal thickness and corrosion.
