The right choice for corrosion-resistant pipeline coatings up to 100mm thick

  • What is it?

Perpendicular contacting probe designed for non-destructive thickness measurement of thick protective coatings on steel or aluminium substrates

  • How does it work? Eddy current method
  • To ISO specification? ISO 2360
  • Measuring Range? 0 – 100 mm       
  • What is the USP?

Special eddy current design provides deep penetration into thick coatings up to 100mm, and is suitable for steel or aluminium substrates

  • Typical measuring applications

Protective coatings on steel pipelines, and smoothing coatings on welded aluminium ship hulls

Oil and gas pipelines and superyacht construction

Suitable instrument types from Helmut Fischer GmbH        DUALSCOPE® FMP100

The FA100 contacting (tactile) probe utilises the Eddy current method (ISO 2360), and can be paired with a range of Fischer portable instruments to provide accurate non-destructive thickness measurement of non-conductive coatings on steel or aluminium. The probe is relatively insensitive to substrate type and curvature.
