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 the past decade or so, Dr. Bernard Laval , a civil engineer with the University of Northern BC in Canada, has been researching Quesnel Lake , a large, deep lake with unusual water dynamics. This allowed him an unusually high level of insight into much of what makes the lake tick—and when Mount Polley Mine (MPM) experienced a breach in 2014, causing materials to be deposited into Quesnel Lake, he already had a sense of what the lake's waters looked like.
“Our work was inspired by a desire to improve holistic understanding of lake function to help with fisheries management by BC Ministry of Environment (BC MOE) and Fisheries and Ocean Canada (DFO),” explains Dr. Laval.Read More
Unique among the 29 National Estuarine Research Reserves (NERRS), Narragansett Bay National Estuarine Research Reserve (NBNERR ) is made up of four islands: Prudence, Patience, Hope and Dyer. Protecting about 4,400 acres of land and water, NBNERR is a great place to see a variety of coastal habitats. There are upland maritime forests, coastal pine barrens, sandy beaches, cobble shorelines, salt marshes and open grasslands. NBNERR also has excellent hiking, fishing, clamming and bird watching. “If you want to see us, though, you’ll need to hop on a ferry,” says Bob Stankelis , NBNERR Reserve Manager. “Or you’ll have to take a boat. We’re not that easy to get to. But to be honest, that’s one of the big things residents here like about it: its remoteness.Read More
Since the 1980s, scientists from the Vermont Department of Environmental Conservation (VT DEC) have been sampling water from acid-impaired ponds and lakes and tracking data related to acidity. The line of inquiry began in response to concerns about acid rain, but DEC scientists now find that the long-term monitoring is not only proving the efficacy of the Clean Air Act but also improving local water quality.
Guarding the environment in Vermont
Rebecca Harvey is a VT DEC scientist, and monitoring the state's waterways for acidity and other problems falls in part to her. Dr. Harvey corresponded with EM about this work.Read More
