UK‐based Elcometer Ltd is a world leader in the design, manufacture, and supply of test equipment for the coating, concrete, and metal‐detection industries. ODU-UK Ltd. had the opportunity to work with Elcometer’s development team at their headquarters in Manchester – to assist in the development of the MTG2 coating thickness gauge by providing a custom mixing insert for the ODU MINI‐SNAP® Series L circular connector.
The MTG2 mobile coating thickness gauge makes it possible to measure the material thickness directly on site, even in hard‐to‐reach areas. It enables easy measurement of the material thickness and sound velocity of coated and uncoated surfaces.
A rebreather system circulates breathing gas around the diver allowing them to “re-breathe” the air, instead of exhaling gas straight out into the water as in a scuba system. This makes rebreathers highly efficient as well as silent and bubble-free, making the diver a natural part of the underwater environment.
On this high-end rebreather, customized ODU MINI-SNAP® connectors ensure a safe connection under demanding conditions. The screw locking avoids accidental demating and the tightness is guaranteed by two O-rings.
