      Ready to Use

      Calibrated and ready for immediate use

      The Elcometer 211 is factory calibrated with user calibration adjustment and also comes with foils to check calibration on site.

      211-image-KEY-FEATURES_2

      Accurate

      Small and portable with ±5% accuracy

      Available in either Metric or Imperial versions, the Elcometer 211 measures coatings up to 6mm (250mils).

      Versatile

      Ideal for use in a range of environments

      Ideal for environments where the use of electronic instruments is difficult, e.g. inflammable atmospheres in oil and gas production, it can also be used for underwater* coating inspection. The “V” grooved base also makes it ideal for pipeline inspection.
