X-ray technology measures the wall thickness of the plastic coating of steel tubes and pipes and the wall thickness of aluminum tubes
A plastic coating is among others applied at freely installed, underground and under water laid metal tubes and pipes for corrosion protection. The plastic coating has to meet certain specifications. Thus, in order to measure the wall thickness of the plastic coating, SIKORA’s X-ray-based X-RAY 6000 PRO is used for tubes and pipes with a diameter of up to 260 mm.
The X-RAY 6000 PRO is independent of the product material to be measured as well as the temperature; no coupling media or calibration is required. Precise measuring values are immediately retrievable with the online measurement. The data is visualized at the monitor of the processor system ECOCONTROL 6000 and enables the user to intervene into the process if needed. Hence, the SIKORA measuring system is an essential component for the assurance of the highest quality and an efficient process during production of plastic coated metal tubes and pipes. The X-RAY 6000 PRO can also be used for the wall thickness measurement of aluminum tubes.
