New Small Probes Expand
Use Of Thickness Gage-
Krautkramer-Branson has ex- panded the capability of its DM2 ultrasonic thickness gage with a selection of new, small probes.
The DM2 is already well-known for its reliability in measuring wall thickness on corroded or eroded pipes and vessels, its pen- etrating power in castings, and its stable thickness readings at high temperatures. Four new 14- inch probes now extend applica- tion of the DM2 to include meas- urement of wall thickness on small-diameter tubing and stud- ded boiler tubes, as well as other limited-access inspections.
The new additions to the DM2 system include fingertip as well as extended housing designs. The
KB-550-FH is a fingertip probe for ambient-temperature testing on rough and uneven surfaces over a wall-thickness range of 0.05 to 2.0 inches. Similar speci- fications are offered by the KB- 550-BTH, except that its extend- ed housing provides easier access to obstructed test surfaces such as studded boiler tubes.
The KB-560-FL is a fingertip
