The Extech thickness gauges are designed in a compact and rugged housing ideal for field use.
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.

Baltimore’s Inner Harbor and the rivers that flow into it are important sources of water to Chesapeake Bay, popular recreation sites and the targets of an ambitious clean-up plan. But the city has for some time lacked an environmental monitoring system for tracking water quality in the harbor continuously. That is about to change, thanks to a collaboration between the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) and Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). It will lead to the new installation of a suite of sensors that will provide the public and scientists with the first comprehensive, real time look at water quality in the harbor.Read More
A parasite that caused a massive fish kill in Montana’s Yellowstone River has been found in at least seven other rivers in the state, according to the Bozeman Daily Chronicle . Scientists with the Montana Fish, Wildlife and Parks department made the find. So far, the parasite has been confirmed in the upper and lower Madison, East Gallatin, Bighorn, Stillwater, and Boulder Rivers. It had already been confirmed in the Jefferson and Shields Rivers. The microscopic parasite causes proliferative kidney disease, one of the most serious diseases to impact whitefish and trout. The effect of the disease on Yellowstone’s fish populations is exacerbated by other stressors like near-record low flows, consistent high temperatures and the disturbance caused by recreational activities.Read More
It may have taken 20 years and $20 million to develop, but Lake Erie researchers working to fight harmful algal blooms (HABs) now have a new tool to safeguard drinking water: ESPniagara. The advanced sampler has been called a “lab in a can” for its ability to sample microcystins, the most common algal toxin these days, in almost real time. The big gadget’s name is a mashup between “ESP,” for environmental sample processor, and the name of Admiral Oliver Hazard Perry’s ship during the War of 1812. “We wanted to name it something that was significant to Lake Erie,” said Tim Davis, molecular biologist and lead HABs researcher at the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration’s Great Lakes Environmental Research Lab (NOAA GLERL) in Ann Arbor, Mich.Read More
