Elcometer 456 Probe
Fully interchangeable and are available in a number of designs and scale ranges to meet your specific application.
Ferrous coating thickness gauge probes measure non magnetic coatings on ferro-magnetic substrates. Elcometer 456 coating thickness ferrous gauges accept any ferrous probe.
Non-ferrous coating thickness gauge probes measure non conductive coatings on non-ferrous metal substrates and Elcometer 456 non-ferrous gauges accept any non-ferrous probe.
Dual FNF probes measure both ferrous and non-ferrous applications with automatic substrate detection. Elcometer 456 FNF coating thickness gauges accept all ferrous, non-ferrous and dual FNF probes.
Elcometer 456 Coating Thickness Gauge Probe Range Explained
Measure coating thickness on both flat and curved surfaces
Ideal for measuring coating thickness on edges, narrow pipes or small surface areas
Right Angle Probes
Designed for taking coating thickness readings where access is restricted
Plug-in probes convert a separate coating thickness gauge into an integral gauge
Telescopic ProbesExtending right angle probes for out of reach areas
Ultra/Scan ProbesThese probes are fitted with replaceable probe caps – allowing users to take individual coating thickness measurements or scan large surface areas without damaging the probe
Sealed for use underwater at depth, even in diving gloves
High Temperature Probes
For use on hot coated materials up to 250°C (480°F)
Chemical resistant washable probes – ideal for the anodising environment
Probes with metal reinforced heavy duty cables, reducing the risk of cable damage
Soft Coating Probes
Large surface area probes for soft reach materials (HVCA approved)
These probes are designed for measuring coating thickness on specialist substrates, such as graphite, or electroplated components
Elcometer probes have a maximum operating temperature of 80°C (176°F) with the exception of separate ferrous probes 150°C (300°F) and Hi-Temperature PINIP’s 250°C (480°F). The stated temperature is the substrate temperature, and the duty cycle of the probe must be reduced to ensure a minimal temperature build-up within the probe.
All Elcometer coating thickness gauge probes are supplied with a Test Certificate and a set of calibration foilsappropriate to the scale range of the probe.
