The Extech TKG series of ultrasonic, portable thickness gauges are specifically designed to measure the remaining wall thickness of primarily steel structures. The TKG100 is a base gauge offering a simple user interface in the custom molded high-density plastic case with rubber keypad. It offers reliable, accurate thickness readings. The TKG150 contains all of the same features as the TKG100, along wih a 50,000 reading datalogger capacity with complete setup tracking, an echo to echo option to reduce coating errors, and a vibrate on alarm function. The TKG250 includes all of the features of the two previous models, in addition to a color LCD display that shows red, yellow, and green visual alarm indications. It also offers a gain adjustement and automated transducer replacement notification feature.

It also offers a gain adjustement and automated transducer replacement notification feature.The B-scan function displays a visual cross section of inspection area with no correlation to distance. TKG250's file compare feature can serve as a real-time corrosion monitor.When powering on, the gauge does an automatic zeroing of the transducer, thus eliminating the need for an on-block zero. This feature ensures the transducer is working in accordance with electronic zeroing procedures, particularly important on high temperature materials.


These pressure gauges are ideal for measurements in boiler tubes, pressure vessels, storage tanks, ship hulls, containers, home oil tanks, pipes, steam lines, compressors, shafts, bridge pins, and bond inspections.

Notable Specifications:
  • Thickness Range (In Steel): 5MHz probe: 0.040 to 20" (1.0 to 508mm); 10MHz probe: 0.020 to 20" (0.50 to 508mm)
  • Material Velocity Calibration Range: 0.200 to 0.7362 in/μS (0.508 to 18.699mm/μS)

The Arizona Department of Environmental Quality's Water Quality Division

With an average rainfall of only 12.5 inches per year and a population that's growing faster than the country's , Arizona is a state that faces unique challenges, especially when it comes to clean, safe water. The Water Quality Division of the Arizona Department of Environmental Quality (ADEQ) protects and enhances public health and the environment by monitoring and regulating drinking water. And although they make use of the latest scientific methods and new technology, given the current state of Arizona's water system, they also rely upon low-tech equipment and cooperation from members of the community to monitor water quality in the state. Team members in the Groundwater Protection Program work to sample, test and characterize groundwater quality in all 51 of Arizona’s basins.

Latest Satellite and Eddy Covariance Data Shows Vulnerability of Trees to Drought

William Anderegg, assistant professor of biology at the University of Utah, has spent years studying drought-stricken trees all over the world. As climate change is expected to cause increased drought severity in the future, the work of Anderegg and his colleagues becomes increasingly important. In a previous interview for the Environmental Monitor , Anderegg found that a tree’s hydraulic safety margin was the best indicator of whether a tree would survive drought. The hydraulic safety margin is an expression of how the tree reacts under drought conditions, where there is very little water being pulled up the tree’s transport system and air is being pulled up instead. “It’s like a heart attack for the tree,” he noted.

A Balancing Act In The Grand Canyon: The High Flow Experiments

You've probably heard of the Four Corners region of the United States; that's where the corners of Arizona, New Mexico, Utah and Colorado meet at one point. These same four states are also part of the Colorado River Storage Project (CRSP), which began to change the face of the American West in 1956, enabling the population explosions in places like Phoenix and Los Angeles to continue thanks to usable water. Glen Canyon Dam is 220 meters high and 480 meters wide, and this massive structure has changed this section of the Colorado River all the way to Lake Mead dramatically. It has also increased low-flow magnitudes, decreased peak flow magnitudes and volumes and caused fluctuations in daily discharge levels that the area relies upon for generation of hydroelectric power.
