Olympus 35/35DL/35HP Precision Thickness Gages

The Panametrics-NDT™ Series 35 ultrasonic precision thickness gages provide easy-to-use and cost-effective solutions in applications where the opposite side of the test material is difficult or impossible to reach. These rugged, pocket-sized gages make stable, repeatable thickness measurements on most materials of varied shapes and sizes. Accurate thickness measurements are displayed in large numerals on the backlit LCD or can be viewed along with the live waveform in the optional A-scan Mode.

35 Series Features

• Velocity and Reduction Rate measurements are standard on all models
• Wide thickness range from 0.0030" to 25.0" (0.08 mm to 635.0 mm) depending on instrument and material
• Uses contact, delay line, and immersion transducers
• Application Auto-Recall with default and custom setups
• Hand-held; weighs only 8.5 oz. (0.24 kg)
• Min/Max Mode
• Hi-Low alarm
• English and metric display (inches/mm)
• Multi-language user interface
• Long battery life

Models 35 and 35DL

The 35 and 35DL can use transducers ranging from 2.25 to 30 MHz, which means that these versatile gages can solve the majority of thickness gaging applications, from very thin to very thick. In general, transducers with higher frequencies and smaller diameters allow measurements of thinner or curved parts and enhance the accuracy of the measurement.

• most materials, from thin to thick
• plastic bottles, tubes, pipes, sheets as thin as 0.08 mm (or 0.003 inch)
• metal containers, steel coils, machined parts as thin as 0.10 mm (or 0.004 inch)
• cylinder bores, turbine blades
• glass bulbs, bottles
• thin fiberglass, rubber, ceramics, and composite materials
• curved areas or containers with small radii
• resolution up to 0.001 mm or 0.0001"

Models 35HP and 35DL-HP

With a very low ultrasonic frequency bandwidth and a special pulser-receiver, the HP gages are specifically designed to optimize ultrasound penetration when measuring thick, highly sound attenuating or sound scattering materials. Typically these materials cannot be measured with most other ultrasonic thickness gages.

• most thick or sound-attenuating materials
• thick cast metal parts
• thick rubber tires, belts
• fiberglass boat hulls, storage tanks
• composite panels
• resolution of 0.01 mm or 0.001"
of 0.01 mm or 0.001"
