Cygnus has incorporated two additional measuring modes in its latest range of thickness gauges. Single-Echo and Echo-Echo modes, both using twin crystal probes, can assist in obtaining measurements in areas of extreme corrosion or back wall pitting. The single-echo measuring mode is suitable for measuring uncoated surfaces with heavy front face and/or back-wall corrosion and attenuative materials such as cast metals, plastics and composites. The Echo-Echo measuring mode is used for measuring painted metals but with heavy back wall pitting for improved back wall detection.
