Ultrasonic Thickness Testing Adopts Three Measuring Modes

In your industry, you may have already come across unreliable measuring equipment, which could create future problems. Here at Cygnus Instruments, we have developed thickness testing equipment that provides error-free readings, making us the first choice for many companies.

Over the years, we have also developed products for underwater use, with all of our handheld devices being easy to use. Our ultrasonic equipment obtains accurate readings by using one of three measuring modes, of which we have identified and explained below.


The multiple-echo mode can collect measurements through coatings up to 20mm thick, and it uses a single crystal probe. The readings are gathered by measuring the amount of time it takes for sound echoes to travel through the material. This ultrasonic thickness testing sends multiple pulses, hence the name.


If you have painted metals that require testing, and they contain heavy back wall corrosion or pitting, then the echo-to-echo measuring mode is ideal. This particular thickness testing equipment measures the time it takes for echoes of sound to travel through the chosen material. Keep in mind that the Cygnus PLUS + surface thickness gauge models and the Cygnus DIVE underwater gauge contain this option.


The single-echo mode is an option in our ultrasonic equipment that checks the thickness of uncoated materials, as well as metals with corrosion. Numerous plastics, geometric objects and attenuative materials can also be tested using this method. A single sound pulse is sent through the gauge, which uses a twin crystal probe.
