Ultrasonic Flaw Detector and Thickness Gauge

The Dakota DFX-7 is both, an ultrasonic flaw detector, as well as an ultrasonic A/B Scan thickness scope, in a single unit. Thickness gauge are specifically setup to very accurately measure thickness, locate pits, flaws and blind surface corrosion. All the linearity tables, correction curves for various types of longitudinal transducers and features are built with dimensional thickness as its primary focus. Flaw detectors are designed to detect, size, position, and differentiate between flaw types in various materials and welded joints. A flaw detector must be fast, in terms of its sample and screen refresh rate, as inspectors are generally scanning the surface of a part or test specimen at a relatively high speed, rather than looking for the thickness at a specific point or location. While flaw detectors can also measure material thickness with reasonable accuracy, they are not designed with precision thickness as their primary focus. The DFX-7 combines the two types of gauges into one powerful and full featured instrument, that’s equipped with a number of comprehensive toolkits to provide the user the arsenal necessary to address a number of common field applications.
