measurement of  the reinforcement height 

Reinforcement height - Weld convexity is the distance measured between the base metal and the highest point of the weld surface, measured at its value. 

  • Set the welding gauge at the zero position
  •  Pull the fillet arm 2 out of the main gauge plate 1, matching the mark with a value corresponding to the diameter of the pipe being monitored 
  • Fix and lock the stop position by tightening the fillet arm rivet 6. 
  • Position the welding gauge on the test object. 
  • After rearranging the pivots in the groove located on the right side of the welding gauge, adjust them until they come into contact with the inspected object.
  • Lock the pivots in this position as shown by the illustration

˟ the parameter measured during the monitoring process is highlighted in red

  • Adjust the linear member 3 so that the taper gauge 5 is above the measurement point (i.e at the point of its greatest convexity). 
  • Lower the top High-Lo arm 4 until the taper gauge 5 makes contact with the surface of the test object at the point of measurement. 
  • Take the value of the parameter w from the horizontal scale W, as well the readings for the parameter h from the vertical scale H. 
  • To determine the desired parameter g shown by the illustration

Using the calculator, you can determine the  desired value from the measured parameters
