PORTAGAUGE® 6 Multiple Echo Ultrasonic Thickness Gauge

SKU: COL-0023

Multiple echo ultrasonic thickness gauge

The Portagauge® 6 is a multiple echo ultrasonic thickness gauge for measuring thicknesses of various metals and hard plastics, which ignores any coating up to 20mm in thickness. It comes with a built-in datalogger to store up to 200,000 thickness measurements and minimum thickness alarm functionality. 

Multi-Echo Capability & Ignores Paint Coating


Easily measure material thickness through paint layers/coatings without removing them. It can ignore paint coatings up to 20mm in thickness, giving you the material’s true thickness readings accurate to +/—0.1mm.

The Portagauge® 6 ultrasonic thickness gauge measures through protective coatings, providing accurate and reliable thickness measurements. This helps you to determine the level of corrosion or erosion without the risk of causing further corrosion damage.

Perfect Companion for Wall Thickness Measurements

The Portagauge® 6 multi-echo ultrasonic thickness gauge is a highly accurate and reliable thickness gauge for measuring the thicknesses of various metals and hard plastics, developed to meet BS EN 15317:2013, which is the standard for ultrasonic testing, characterisation and verification of ultrasonic thickness measuring equipment.
