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 700° to 1000°F (371° 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 amount 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 should not be hazardous to your health.
EchoTherm does not contain Teflon and is not expected to cause "polymer plume fever".
EchoTherm is the most economical ultra-high temperature couplant.
