The DM5E family is the latest generation of portable corrosion monitoring thickness gauges form GE Sensing & Inspection Technologies. It offers significant improvement in performance over previous corrosion thickness gauges in terms of better thickness measurement stability and repeatability at normal and elevated temperatures. It has been designed for operation in the harshest of working environments, performing wall thickness measurements on pipelines, pressure vessels and storage tanks in the oil and gas industry, as well as the petrochemical and power generation sectors.
The DM5E Basic
The rugged housing of the DM5E Basic is common to all versions.
It is ergonomically designed with a weight of just 223g, including
its AA batteries, which allow up to 60 hours of operation. The basic
version is specified to EN 15317 and features an LCD data display,
which is backlit to be visible in all lighting conditions. Instrument
operation is carried out with one hand via a user-friendly interface.
This is a sealed, watertight and dust-proof membrane keypad,
which features a minimum of function keys and arrow keys.
Navigation through menus is simple and intuitive. The basic version incorporates a wide range of features including Min/Max
capture, B-Scan generation, alarms and differential thickness
measurement to allow instant comparison between measured
and nominal thickness.
The DM5E incorporates all the features of the DM5E Basic but also offers the DUAL MULTI operating mode. This has been used in previous GE corrosion thickness gauges and has proved invaluable in measuring thickness of metal through coatings. There is no need to remove the coating at the measuring point, saving time and money. Users can up-grade from DM5E Basic to DM5E in the field . The DM5E DL The DM5E DL is identical to the DM5E but features a built-in datalogger supporting grid style data file formats. This is capable of holding up to 50,000 readings. Files can be transferred to a PC by means of a Mini USB Com port. Files can also be imported directly into Microsoft Excel through a macro. All alphanumeric data for filenames and notes is directly entered via the key pad. Both the basic and standard versions are field-upgradeable to become DL versions.
