DeFelsko’s new PosiTector 6000 FHXS Xtreme coating thickness gage measures coatings up to 400 mils (10,000 microns) thick in rugged environments.

Designed with an alumina wear face and braided steel cable, the gage is designed for measuring on hot or rough surfaces up to 250°C (500°F). The probe is sturdy and large enough to use with gloves, according to DeFelsko.

2 Models

The FHXS Xtreme is available in Standard (FHXS1) and Advanced (FHXS3) models.
