Plant maintenance is a sector with a wide array of inspection requirements: inspection of industrial machinery, factory infrastructure, boiler tubes and pressure vessels to name but a few. And the range of environments is diverse as well, from food processing plants to mines to steel mills to nuclear power stations.
The Cygnus 1 Intrinsically Safe gauge is ATEX rated (including for mines) for safe use in explosive atmospheres. Measuring using the Multiple-Echo technique it can ignore coatings up to 0.8 inch thick. This saves time and money removing and re-applying coatings and the complex logistics required for this in hazardous environments. In addition, measuring without removing protective coatings avoids the material under test being exposed to further corrosion.
The Cygnus 4 General Purpose boats through-coating measurement using Multiple-Echo in a tough, water-resistant and shock-proof rubber housing. The large, bright, color LCD display can be used in bright sunlight and includes menus which are very simple to use and navigate.
