TUBE GUIDE SYSTEMS FOR ZUMBACH, BETA LASERMIKE
AND LASERLINC WALL THCKNESS MEASUREMENT GAUGES 
 



SONIC STREAM GUIDE: MAKES ULTRASONIC WALL MEASUREMENT MORE RELIABLE

  • A drop-in guide fixture design for all ZUMBACH UMAC®, BETA LASERMIKE UltraScan®, and LASERLINC UltraGauge+®, ultrasonic sensor fixtures
  • Ensures precision alignment of the tube in the center of the ultrasonic wave field
  • Tube position in the field is critical to accurate wall thickness measurement
  • Greatly reduces "dropped" wall measurments by keeping tube confined to the center of the sonic field



ELIMINATES NEED FOR GUIDE BLOCKS
 

  • Standard model accommodates size range of tubing diameters from 0 to 0.250 inch. Larger tubes can be accommodated
  • No need to buy expensive, multiple alignment block sets
 
 



SONIC STREAM GUIDE™ FEATURES

  • Polished ceramic guides
  • Stainless steel, Polyethylene, and ceramic materials
  • Precision controls allow full range adjustment of tube:
    •      Left, right, up and down
  • Micro precision movement on both ends of sensor block fixture
  • Standard models can accommodate tubing up to 0.250 inch diameter tubing
  • Easy removal for cleaning

    

CENTERING OF THE TUBE IN THE ULTRASONIC FIELD IS ESSENTIAL

To attain correct and consistent wall thickness measurement the tube must be kept centered in the ultrasonic field. It must be kept centered at a tolerance 10-15% of the outer diameter of the tube you are measuring. This becomes critical when using only 4 sensors for measurement. Field centering is critical when measuring 0.001 to 0.005 inch wall thicknesses.
 

Traditional drilled guide blocks:

  • Are expensive
  • Are difficult to machine correctly for small tubes
  • Do not assure critical alignment
  • And do not accommodate diameter changes during string up and process changes
