TRITEX Gel Dispenser

Ultrasonic Thickness Gauges rely on good coupling to the surface being measured and the best option for doing this is to use a gel couplant specifically designed for the job.

The TRITEX Gel Dispenser allows for a small amount of gel to be pumped onto the surface of the probe wirelessly by clicking a button on the Communicator software.

It is connected to the MULTIGAUGE 6000 DRONE gauge which receives the signal from Communicator and in turn sends a signal to the pump within the gel dispenser for a preset time.

Gel is pumped from the internal reservoir onto the face of the probe at the optimum time.


  • Pumps couplant directly to the probe face only when needed;

  • Wireless control from Communicator Software;

  • Lightweight;

  • 70 ml couplant reservoir;

  • Facility to mount onto most drones.

Communicator Software:

  • The MULTIGAUGE 6000 DRONE gauge uses wireless technology to transmit the readings to the PC or laptop, where dedicated communicator software displays the measurements in real time;

  • Each measurement can also be stored in a .txt file format which can be opened in proprietary programs to produce reports.

Drone Probe Holder

The Probe Holder has been designed to accurately present the probe onto the surface being measured. 

The connecting spring allows flexibility in all directions and the cone shaped guard ensures the probe is aligned flat onto the surface. 

The lightweight construction can be used with most drones. It is supplied with two 250 mm x 16 mm diameter carbon tubes to extend the probe out beyond the drones rotors. 

A specially designed system allows couplant to be pumped onto the surface of the probe using the TRITEX Gel Dispenser.
