Bowers Metrology’s improved long-reach bore gauging system is suitable for use in harsh environments, such as the oil and gas industries, and includes a choice of Sylvac readout systems.

The system can measure bores that have a diameter range of 50–310mm and are up to 15m deep, using a pneumatically activated ’Deep-Hole’ system.

The modular equipment includes gauging heads that are manufactured from tungsten carbide and have retractable spherical anvils. They also have a range of 1m extensions that can be connected together to reach a required depth.

The measuring heads and the bore that is being measured are protected from damage by the spherical anvils and guide sleeves.

Key product features

  • Measuring heads are remotely operated using a pneumatic activator powered by a 90PSI compressed air supply
  • Measurements are taken using a foot-switch that is connected to the airline
  • Diameter results are sent to a digital readout
  • All available readouts feature RS232 outputs in order to enable data-transmission to PCs, printers and data-loggers
