Echo 8 HT High Temp UT Couplant
The Echo 8 HT High Temp UT Couplant is a line of high-temperature, slow-drying ultrasonic fluids with an excellent safety profile that is compatible with all metals and most plastics.
This couplant has 3 different viscosity grades: 1, 4 and 10. It performs on a broad range of AUT and MUT ultrasonic flaw and thickness gaging applications from -50°F to 800°F (-45°C to 425°C).
- Grade 1: is the lowest viscosity fluid (100 cST) for long or small diameter lines and quick spreading.
- Grade 4: is the standard viscosity fluid (400 cST) and is usually a good compromise between pump ability and run-off at the transducer.
- Grade 10: is a very thick fluid (5,000 cST – honey like) for MUT. It spreads easily over large hot surfaces, stays in place and leaves minimal, if any residue.
