DeFelsko’s PosiTector® Interchangeable Probes for inspection instruments have been named a Materials Performance Corrosion Innovation of the Year.
The American designed and manufactured PosiTector body accepts all interchangeable probes including coating thickness (6000/200/PC), environmental (DPM), surface profile (RTR/SPG) and ultrasonic wall thickness (UTG) probes. This innovation allows quick and easy conversion from a coating thickness gauge to a surface profile gauge, dew point meter or ultrasonic wall thickness gauge with a simple probe change. Each probe retains its own unique calibration information allowing for full probe interchangeability, an industry first.
The Materials Performance Corrosion Innovation of the Year Awards showcase progressive technological developments in all aspects of corrosion prevention and mitigation and recognise the innovators who have created revolutionary solutions to combat corrosion and protect vital assets from its damaging effects.
Winners were announced at the recent Corrosion 2014, NACE International’s leading corrosion conference and expo.
David Beamish, DeFelsko President, was on hand to accept the award on behalf of the entire DeFelsko staff, located in Ogdensburg, New York. “We are very honored that a panel of leading experts in the field of corrosion chose our interchangeable PosiTector probes as the most innovative product,” said Beamish. “A sincere thank you to all who voted for us as we continue to pioneer new instrumentation for inspectors.”
