Elcometer :: Coating Thickness - Mechanical Thickness Gauges The Elcometer 211, commonly referred to as the "Banana Gauge," has proven to be a successful coating thickness gauge where the use of electronic instruments is difficult, e.g inflammable atmospheres in oil and gas production.

The "v" grooved base, rubber feet and clear scale with its ranges for thicker coatings, make this instrument one of the most popular mechanical gauges in the world.

  • Factory calibrated - with user calibration adjustment
  • Foils supplied to check calibration on site
  • Ideal for very cold surfaces
  • Small, portable, with an accuracy ±5%
The Elcometer 211 can also be supplied with a special 3 piece coated standard (traceable to NIST and UKAS) at a special price - contact your Elcometer representative for further information.

Elcometer 211 Coating Thickness Gauge

The Elcometer 211 gauge is held against the test surface.

The knurled thumbwheel is then slowly rotated clockwise until the magnet pulls off, a click is heard and the indicator pops up.

The thickness value is now indicated.

Rough Surface Calibration

The scale can be adjusted manually for measurement on rough surface (e.g. shot or grit blast), or on surfaces or different magnetic permeabilities.
