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.

For decades, commercial fishing for yellow perch was allowed in southern Lake Michigan. This persisted until 1996 when it was outlawed, giving perch stocks there some time to recover. Scientists had for some time assumed that this fishing ban would not affect the reproduction cycles of the perch quickly and that they were going to need a long time to revert back to the cycles they relied on before commercial fishing ever started. But new research led by scientists at Purdue University finds that maturation schedules of yellow perch in southern Lake Michigan are much more resilient than had been previously thought possible.Read More
Largely seen as pristine and relatively untouched by human activity thanks to its protected status, the portion of the Colorado River flowing through Grand Canyon National Park is anything but, according to recently published research. This is evidenced by high levels of selenium and mercury found in the fishes there. Scientists from many institutions were involved in the years-long work, full results of which have been published in the journal Environmental Toxicology and Chemistry. It was led by the U.S. Geological Survey, but perhaps the contributors from Idaho State University got the best end of the stick. They were looking into the food webs of the river to evaluate concentrations of selenium and mercury gathering in fish.Read More
For all the straightforward groundwater monitoring applications that the folks at Heron Instruments help with, there are a few that are far from typical. These include projects that take place near remediation sites or not far from waste disposal operations. Realizing that customers working in those sorts of projects are in need of a more robust option, the company has released the dipper-Tough . The new water level meter takes inspiration from Heron’s popular dipper-T , while throwing in a host of improvements that environmental pros working in groundwater can really appreciate.Read More
