As a primary inspection tool for corrosion assessments, the Sonatest AlphaGage+ instrument uses dual element transducers in a Pitch & Catch configuration to reduce surface problems and to measure accurately the remaining wall thickness of these metal structures subject to corrosion.

This product is a key tool to inspect ageing assets and solve problems in the Oil & Gas or Petrochemicals industries.

Typical applications include:

  • metal pipe works
  • pressure vessels
  • structural parts
  • storage tanks

true thickness

True Thickness (under coating)

When a metal surface is protected by anti-corrosion paint or coating, true wall thickness measurement using Echo-to-Echo function is a key feature and available on all AlphaGage+ models.

 

 

Field Upgradable Features

Upgradable in the field, the AlphaGage+ is a flexible solution as it can be fully loaded from the start or upgraded anytime later by easily activating its valuable software options when required.

data loggerData Logger (B-Scan)

Thickness readings with ID location for corrosion mapping or profile assessment and send readings to Microsoft Excel™ for further asset maintenance evaluation.

 

 

live waveformLive Waveform (A-Scan)

Display live A-scan for echo verification and real time control of acoustic range, rectification, gain and blanks or combine the A-Scan with B-Scan view for even more detailed analysis.
