Abstract

The operating principle and design of an eddy-current transducer intended for in-service measurement of the wall thickness of light-alloy drill pipes are described. The block diagram and algorithm of conversion are provided for measurement-data signals from the eddy-current thickness gauge. The main technical specs are listed for a thickness gauge prototype.
