The Multigauge 6000 Drone Thickness Gauge from Dorchester based Tritex NDT is specifically designed for mounting onto drones for high level inspections. The gauge uses multiple echo to completely ignore coatings up to 20mm thick and the single crystal probe ensures accurate readings on curved surfaces, such as storage tanks, pipelines and in the marine industry. Remaining metal thickness and corrosion levels can be quickly and more easily checked without the need for scaffolding or rope access.

The Multigauge 6000 Drone Thickness Gauge transmits real time measurements wirelessly up to a distance of 500 metres using its integrated RF transmitter. The readings are displayed and stored on dedicated Communicator software within templates in a grid or string format. The software has an autologging feature to ensure no measurements are missed. Measurement data can also be transmitted using RS232, in parallel with the wireless output, so that measurements can be overlaid onto the drones video output.

A Gel Dispenser, operated wirelessly from the ground station, dispenses just the right amount of couplant onto the face of the probe before each measurement. A lightweight probe holder, which has movement in all directions, helps align the probe should the drone not be perfectly aligned with the surface being measured.

The Multigauge 6000 has proved to be extremely popular with many repeat orders already received. “We are pleased to be leading the field in this development and proud that we have the first commercially available dedicated drone thickness gauge, which has been developed in response to customer’s feedback and requirements.”, says Jon Sharland, Sales Manager at Tritex NDT Ltd.

Tritex NDT have also developed the Multigauge 6500 Drone, dedicated to carrying the Multigauge 6000 Thickness Gauge, to offer a complete package to customers not already familiar with drones. This drone is a coaxial octocopter, which offers multiple motor redundancy and keeps airframe size to a minimum. It operates using a DJI Lightbridge 2 control system and has an integral camera. The Multigauge 6500 drone has been designed for reliability and has a small footprint, including folding propellers, for easy transportation.

The Multigauge 6000 Drone Thickness Gauge has Intelligent Probe Recognition (IPR), which automatically adjusts settings in the gauge when a probe is connected, resulting in a perfectly matched probe and gauge for enhanced performance. Also, the Automatic Measurement Verification System (AMVS) used with multiple echo ensures only true measurements are displayed, even on the most heavily corroded metals.

Tritex NDT is a leading manufacturer of thickness gauges. All gauges are designed and manufactured in the United Kingdom and supplied as complete kits, ready to use, with a 3 year warranty and free annual calibration for the life of the gauge.
