VersaSonic, the most versatile ultrasonic testing couplant available, will now be used in even more environments after recent developments. Caterpillar Inc., the well-known equipment and engine manufacturer, has approved VersaSonic for use on its CAT equipment. Caterpillar is distributing VersaSonic through its dealers worldwide for UT thickness gauge inspections in harsh environments, from sub-zero to […]
High temperature couplant
Vaporization of VersaSonic™ vs Sono 600® The above plot is a technical representation of why VersaSonic (top line) outperforms Sono 600 (bottom line). The plot depicts the weight loss of each couplant due to vaporization over time at 200°C (392°F). Sono 600 loses significantly more mass and vaporizes faster than VersaSonic. Vaporization produces gas […]
Introduced in the mid 1970’s by Aerotech / Krautkramer Branson and sold by GE Inspection Technologies for decades, HiTempco has been the standard of performance in silicone based ultrasonic couplants. With a broad temperature range of -50°F to 775°F (-45°C to 412°C), its applications range from high temperature thickness gauging and flaw detection to ambient […]

You may be aware that VersaSonic® has superior performance from -10 to 750°F, however, did you know: VersaSonic is available in medium viscosity for optimal spread-ability and high viscosity to “stay in place” on a transducer, pipe or overhead surface. VersaSonic is available in open-top 1 and 5-gallon pails (5-gallon dispensing pump included at no […]
Our Mission at Echo Ultrasonics is to provide the highest performance ultrasonic couplants based on today’s chemistry and compliant with world Regulatory Guidelines. Intertek Scientific & Regulatory Consultancy was retained to conduct a REACH assessment / CLP Evaluation for all Echo Ultrasonics high temperature ultrasonic couplants. Intertek determined that there is NO CLP Classification or […]
Echo Ultrasonics has introduced two new high temperature ultrasonic couplants that now provide safe thickness gauging, corrosion mapping and flaw inspection above 750°F (400°C). The auto-ignition temperature of these new couplants exceeds 1350° F (732°C). EchoTherm is a high temperature thick paste couplant with an operating range of 750°F/400°C to 1250°F/676°C. EchoTherm contains a plastic […]
