DeFelsko® PosiTector® UTG Ultrasonic Thickness Gauge

DeFelsko® PosiTector® UTG Ultrasonic Thickness Gauge


The PosiTector UTG – DeFelsko’s solution for measurement of wall thicknesses of pipes, tanks, and more where access is limited to one side.  Here are some highlights of the highly capable DeFelsko ultrasonic thickness gage probe family:

  • Familiar.  The UTG family of probes are interchangeable with the tried-and-true DeFelsko gage body platform.
  • Capable.  Six different probe versions are available, depending on the requirements of the application.  The first four are standard corrosion single-echo probes designed for applications where the surface is unpainted (or has the paint removed.)
    • PRBUTGC:  Standard frequency 5mz transducer. Cabled.
    • PRBUTGCX:  Xtreme version of above with a braided stainless cable with strain relief for demanding use.
    • PRBUTGCA:  Same as above, except integral  non-cabled design. This version is ideal for one-handed use.
    • PRBUTGCLF.  Low-frequency 2.25mz transducer for attenuative materials like cast iron.  Standard cable.
  • The following two models are both cabled, and can be used on either painted or non-painted substrates.
    • PRBUTGM:  5mz transducer with highly versatile single and multi-echo modes.  Single mode offers greater (up to 5 inches thick) measurement range, but should be used where paint has been removed.  Multi-echo mode does not require the paint to be removed and can measure walls up to 2.5 inches thick.  This version has a durable alumina wear face and is ideal for use on rough or blasted surfaces.
    • PRBUTGP: 15mz transducer offers high precision when measuring thin materials (up to .475 inch thick steel or up to .175 inch thick plastic).  It has automatic single / multi echo mode switching for use on painted or unpainted surfaces.  This probe can be used to measure thicknesses of plastic bottles, aircraft windows, thin-wall pipe, and much more.
  • Configurable.  Any of the six probes can be configured in the following packages:
    • Probe only.  Use with your existing PosiTector gauge.
    • Standard PosiTector package with choice of probe.
    • Advanced PosiTector package with choice of probe.
    • Note:  All PosiTector UTG packages come with case, ultrasonic gel, calibration certificate,  and more.

DeFelsko® PosiTector® UTG Ultrasonic Thickness Gauge


The DeFelsko® PosiTector® UTG Ultrasonic Thickness Gauge stands at the forefront of thickness measurement technology, offering unparalleled precision and ease of use for professionals in a wide range of industries. Whether monitoring the integrity of tanks and pipes or evaluating the effects of corrosion on structural materials, the PosiTector® UTG delivers reliable, accurate measurements even in the most challenging conditions where access to both sides of the substrate is not easily available. One version of this instrument distinguishes itself with the ability to measure the metal thickness of painted structures without the need to remove the coating, thanks to its advanced Multiple Echo (UTG M) Thru-Paint technology. Pre-programmed with velocities for common materials, the PosiTector® UTG allows for quick setup and initiation of testing procedures. The Min Scan mode is particularly useful for conducting swift inspections over large areas, recording minimum and maximum thicknesses to identify potential weaknesses or failures. Durability is a hallmark of the PosiTector® UTG, featuring a rugged, weatherproof, and dustproof design that's ideal for both field and shop applications. The device's two-year warranty, shock-absorbing holster, and braided stainless steel cable (on the PosiTector UTG CX model) underscore its readiness for demanding applications. Accuracy is ensured with precision ultrasonic transducers and built-in temperature compensation, while conformity to ASTM E797 and other standards guarantees compliance with international measurement requirements.
