What is an ATEX Thickness Gauge?

In certain environments, explosive atmospheres may be present. An explosive atmosphere is one that is caused by flammable mists, vapors, or gases or by combustible dusts. If an explosion is triggered, the repercussions can be deadly. An explosion can cause widespread damage, injury, and even loss of life. Under the Dangerous Substances and Explosive Atmospheres Regulations 2002 (DSEAR), employers have a duty to eliminate or control the risks from explosive atmospheres in the workplace.

ATEX certified thickness gauges are designed to be intrinsically safe. What this means is that an ATEX device contains wiring that won’t generate sufficient thermal or electrical energy to ignite an explosive atmosphere, even in its most easily ignited concentration. This is regardless of whether the ATEX device is working normally or abnormally. This is accomplished by placing a limit on how much power is available to the ATEX device, keeping energy output below the point of ignition.

Our ATEX Thickness Gauges

The Cygnus 1 Ex is an ATEX certified thickness gauge that’s been designed with explosive atmospheres in mind. This rugged, shock-proof ATEX device utilizes Multiple-Echo mode to provide error-checked readings of metal thickness to determine wastage or corrosion. Because it is an ATEX certified device, it won’t generate sufficient thermal or electrical energy to ignite an explosive atmospheric mixture.

Each ATEX certified Cygnus 1 Ex device is supplied with a protective carry case and comes with two rechargeable batteries. Each battery provides up to 12 hours of continuous use before needing to be recharged. Our ATEX devices are designed to be used in tandem with single crystal probes.

ATEX Thickness Gauge

There are ample benefits to using an ATEX certified thickness gauge, including:

  • Portability
  • Safety
  • Consistency
  • Quick Detection
  • Limited Access Required
  • Instant Results

Our ATEX devices are small, compact, and lightweight. They can be easily carried in a small bag or case, meaning they can be easily carted to any location. There’s no need to lug around heavy or bulky equipment, making jobs far easier to carry out, even in remote areas.

Easily one of the biggest benefits of using an ATEX device is safety – because an ATEX device is intrinsically safe, it can be used in any environment where an explosive atmosphere is present.

Greater consistency is possible with ATEX devices and thickness gauges in general. Once calibrated, the user need only point the ATEX device at whatever surface needs testing. So long as the correct probe is used, users will be able to gather consistently reliable results.

The time it takes for ATEX devices to send and receive sound pulses is as low as a matter of seconds. Results can be obtained very quickly, greatly expediting testing when compared to traditional methods.

Lastly, ATEX devices and thickness devices, in general, require no need for a large amount of space as there’s no large and bulky equipment to accommodate. Because of how ATEX devices work, readings can be taken without needing to dismantle anything, greatly expediting matters.
