Online Testing System to measure Thickness of PVC Pipes

The Task

To design an online testing system to measure thickness of PVC pipes. PVC pipes manufacturers monitors uniformity of wall thickness around the circumference of pipes in order to meet product specifications. So Ultrasonic testing helps in measuring the wall thickness without cutting the pipe, pipe thickness can also be measured after installation.

The Solution

In this case, the task can be successfully done by supplying 4 channel ultrasonic thickness module which can test thickness of pipe ranging from 2.5 mm to 6 mm. The system continuously records the thickness of the pipe, and if the probe measures any change in the echo amplitude i.e change in thickness it will be indicated through the alarm present in the system.

The Advantages

  • Completely non-destructive method
  • Highly reliable
  • Wide measurement range
  • Instant response
