The Materials Performance Corrosion Innovation of the Year Awards showcase progressive technological developments in all aspects of corrosion prevention and mitigation and recognize the innovators who have created revolutionary solutions to combat corrosion and protect vital assets from its damaging effects.

DeFelsko’s PosiTector body accepts all interchangeable probes including coating thickness (6000/200/PC), environmental (DPM), surface profile (RTR/SPG), and ultrasonic wall thickness (UTG) probes. This innovation allows quick and easy conversion from a coating thickness gage to a surface profile gage, dew point meter or ultrasonic wall thickness gage with a simple probe change. Each probe retains its own unique calibration information allowing for full probe interchangeability, an industry first.

Winners were announced at the recent Corrosion 2014, NACE International’s leading corrosion conference and expo.

DeFelsko President David Beamish proudly accepted the award on behalf of the entire staff located in Ogdensburg, N.Y. “We are very honored that a panel of leading experts in the field of corrosion chose our interchangeable PosiTector probes as the most innovative product,” said Beamish, “A sincere thank you to all who voted for us as we continue to pioneer new instrumentation for inspectors.”
