CFCM GARDCO Byko Test Gauge 400The byko-test gauge from GARDCO offers a unique solution to monitor environmental conditions by measuring film thickness Fe/NFe, dew point, air temperature, and relative humidity all in one.

Choose from two models: the byko-test or the byko-test Lite.

byko-test

Four measurements in one instrument: coating thickness Fe/NFe, dew point, air temperature, relative humidity. The byko-test offers a unique solution to monitor environmental conditions while measuring dry film thickness. Air temperature and humidity sensors are built into the gauge. The dew point temperature is displayed to determine, if the conditions are right for painting. The byko-test complies with SSPC PA-2 and ASTM D7091 methods for the measurement of coating thickness. There is a SSPC mode to assist the operator on measurement protocols and calibration. The large, rotating color display is readable in high and low light conditions. It's easy to use with large operating buttons ideal for users wearing gloves.

byko-test Lite

The byko-test lite is a Ferrous/Non-Ferrous coating thickness gauge with a compact design for easy handling. The gauge body is made from impact resistant material and it's easy to use. The operate buttons are large for users wearing gloves. It automatically recognizes the substrate and switches to the correct setting. An automatic switch-off ensures long battery life. The large color display with a backlight is readable in high and low lighting conditions. The display will automatically rotate to the correct viewing position. In the statistic mode average, minimum, maximum, and standard deviation are displayed. The measurements are automatically stored and downloadable to a PC with the optional USB cable and software.

CFCM slingpsychrometer 400Paul N. Gardner USA, global distributors, producers, and designers of quality physical and inspection instruments for the paint, coatings, and related industries, has introduced a new offering: The compact, portable Sling Psychrometer.

As an easy way to measure relative humidity levels quickly, this uniquely compact Bacharach Sling Psychrometer accurately determines per cent relative humidity without the necessity of consulting complex tables. There is no need to wet the wick each time a reading is taken, and it contains a slide rule calculator which correlates wet and dry bulb thermometer indications for direct reading of relative humidity. When not in use, the thermometer case telescopes into the handle for protection.

The Sling Psychrometer consists of two thermometers that are turned by vigorously swinging the handle and exposing the thermometers to rapid air movement. These two thermometers are called dry bulb and wet bulb. The bulb of one thermometer is placed in direct contact with the room air to measure dry-bulb air temperature. The bulb of the other thermometer is covered with a silk or muslin sleeve that is kept moist to record the wet bulb temperature. Evaporation cools the wet bulb more than the dry bulb, and the humidity is obtained as a function of change in temperature. The atmospheric humidity is determined by calculations, steam tables, or using a psychrometric chart. Gardco.com
