PELT® (Pulse/Echo Layer Thickness)
products from JSR Ultrasonics are microprocessor based ultrasonic
thickness measurement systems.
Gauges are internationally recognized for direct and precise
multi-layer gauging of coatings on both non-metallic and metallic
substrates. PELT Gauges are non-destructive contact gauging systems
that do not damage the coating or destroy the sample being measured.
Single layer coatings as well as multi-layered coatings can be made
with the PELT Gauge. With one measurement, the PELT Gauge can
accurately measure the thickness of each individual layer of a coating
(up to 5 layers). This is true even if the layers were
applied “wet on wet”, as is the case with many basecoat/clearcoat
systems in use today.
the measurements are made on finished parts, there is no need to waste
resources preparing special samples for measurement. Measurements can
be made on virtually any type of substrate. Corrosion inhibitors and
pre-treated metallic substrates (i.e. galvanization) pose no problem.
There is no need to subtract the thickness of the inhibitors or
treatments from the measurement (a common practice with conventional
plastic or composite substrates, the PELT Gauge measures each layer
down to the substrate. Varying substrate thickness or laminated
substrates do not affect the ability to gauge or the accuracy of the
layer thickness measurements.
With optional probes, the PELT can be configured to
measure many different materials and in some cases, substrate thickness
itself can be measured.
