Multiple Echo Ultrasonic Thickness Testing Equipment 

Multiple Echo is a technique we at Cygnus Instruments have developed over many years. We have been developing ultrasonic thickness testing equipment for over 40 years, and during this time, we realized that other testing equipment did not have the capabilities to measure through coatings of more than 1-2mm in depth. This made certain types of measurements impossible to accurately gauge.  

As a response to this issue, we developed a single crystal probe that emits a single frequency burst and measures the response three consecutive times for the same pulse. The way the sound reverberates inside the surfaces allows us to eliminate the coating from the measurement, thus giving us an accurate reading of the thickness of the wall. This is especially important when measuring corrosion, such as rust or surfaces coated in dirt or paint. 

The Range of Industries We Service 

When you choose a Cygnus Instruments wall thickness gauge, we guarantee that you will receive the best thickness testing equipment on the market. In fact, we are sure you won’t find a better alternative elsewhere. We began our journey in the marine inspection industry and, since then, we have spent over 40 years meticulously researching and developing the highest quality, most accurate ultrasonic thickness gauges available on the market.
