A high temperature thickness gauging and corrosion testing couplant that has an operating range of 200°F to 1000°F (93 to 538°C ) and an auto-ignition temperature of above 1300°F (704°C).
EchoTherm removes the industrial accident liability, personnel risk and “startle” factor of surprise auto-ignition events when performing high temperature thickness gauging or corrosion profiling at temperatures from 200°F to 1000°F (93°C to 538°C).
EchoTherm contains a polymer which melts (and begins to smoke) at 750°F (400°C) which extends the operating range. However, it is NOT necessary to reach this temperature to obtain instant readings.
Due to the small mass of EchoTherm used for ultrasonic thickness gauging, the slow rate of thermal decomposition and local ventilation, the vaporized and thermal decomposed product in the smoke are not anticipated to be a health hazard.
EchoTherm does not contain Teflon and is not expected to cause “polymer plume fever.”
EchoTherm is the most economical ultra-high temperature couplant.
Operating Range: 200°F to 1000°F (93°C to 538°C)
Auto Ignition Temperature*: greater than 1300°F (704°C)
Flash Point: 1050°F (570°C)
Viscosity: thick paste
* Test by John A. Kennedy & Assoc., ASTM E659-14
EchoTherm contains a polymer which melts (and begins to smoke) at 750F, which extends the operating range, however, it is not necessary to reach this temperature to obtain instant readings.
If you are testing below 750°F, VersaSonic is the ideal broad temperature couplant with an operating range of -10 to 750°F.
