What Is an ATEX Ultrasonic Thickness Gauge?  

If you’re new to the world of ultrasonic thickness gauges, you might be unfamiliar with what the difference is between a regular gauge and an ATEX certified gauge. ATEX is an abbreviation for the ATEX Directive. It is short for Atmospheres Explosibles and is a set of EU regulations set out to ensure the safety of individuals using testing products in explosive environments. 

Any explosive environment is characterised as an environment in which flammable gases, mists, or vapours, or combustible dusts are found. Such environments only require a source of ignition to trigger an explosion or start a fire. Non-ATEX ultrasonic thickness gauges can easily trigger such an explosion. 

If an explosion is triggered, the results can be devastating, resulting in loss of life, injury, and property damage. Under the Dangerous Substances and Explosive Atmospheres Regulations 2002 (DSEAR), employers have a duty of care. This includes controlling or eliminating the risk of explosions occurring, and that’s where ATEX certified devices come into play. 

ATEX ultrasonic thickness gauges are classified as intrinsically safe. This means that the device doesn’t contain wiring or generate sufficient electrical or thermal energy to ignite an explosive atmosphere. This is regardless of whether the atmosphere composition is in its easily ignited concentration or not. 

And this occurs whether the ATEX certified device is working normally or abnormally. How this is accomplished is by limiting the amount of power available to the ATEX device. The energy output, therefore, remains below the point of ignition. So, the user can use an ATEX ultrasonic thickness gauge safe in the knowledge that an explosion won’t occur. 

What Are the Benefits of An ATEX Ultrasonic Thickness Gauge?  

If you regularly carry out inspections in potentially explosive environments, then an ATEX thickness gauge is a no-brainer. But there do exist other methods for taking thickness measurements that also won’t trigger an explosion, so why invest in an ATEX gauge at all? 

To answer this question, we’ve listed the benefits of using an ATEX certified gauge, and as you can see, the benefits far outweigh the upfront investment: 

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

An ATEX certified device is small, compact, and lightweight. Traditional methods would have you lugging around equipment, while an ATEX device has everything you need in one neat little device. An ATEX device can be easily transported to any location, even remote regions where bulky equipment can be too cumbersome to carry. 

Of course, the single biggest benefit that ATEX gauges offer is safety. As an intrinsically safe device, an ATEX gauge doesn’t generate sufficient thermal or electrical energy to trigger an explosion. So, you can use it with absolute confidence, safe in the knowledge that it can take readings effectively, without putting you or anyone else at risk. 

The next benefit of an ATEX device is consistency. As with other thickness gauges, you need only calibrate the device. Once calibrated, you simply aim the device at whatever surface you’re testing, and the attached probe does the work for you. So long as you have the correct probe attached, the return signal will be interpreted by the gauge, providing quick and accurate results. 

This process can be repeated over and over, providing a level of consistency not possible with traditional methods. Results are virtually instantaneous and limited access is required to the surface that’s being tested. This means that you won’t need to take anything apart, reducing labour and scrap costs.
