Key Features & Options
SONO-ID Wireless Probe Recognition
SONOWALL 70 is the first thickness gauge in the market with intelligent probe identification. The extended probe management allows probe-specific information such as DAC-curves, delay lines, and serial numbers to be saved directly in the ultrasonic probe. In addition to various thickness applications, the device can be upgraded to a full-function flaw detector.
Advantages at Glance

- SONO-ID for wireless probe recognition
- SONOGRID corrosion management software
- High temperature kit for corrosion testing up to 550°C
- IP67, aluminum housing
SONOGRID Corrosion Management Software
Efficient Corrosion Testing
Corrosion and erosion defects are among the most common safety risks and reasons for production break downs in industrial environments such as refineries, pipeline networks, chemical plants, offshore platforms, storage tanks, etc. In order to maintain assets and to avoid hazards, ultrasonic thickness measurements are typically recorded frequently at pre-defined points creating a virtual grid on the surface of the test object. To help, collect, organize and report readings efficiently, the SONOWALL 70 ultrasonic thickness gauge can be equipped with the SONOGRID Corrosion Management Software.
- Efficient and reliable Matrix Data Collection
- Visualization of test path through 3D Grid Creation
- Live Comparison Function and Corrosion Rate Estimation
- Easy Attachment of A-/B-scans and unlimited Text Comments
- Reproducibility through Grid Copy Function and Device Setup List
- Direct Data Export to MS-Excel and custom Report Generation
Structured Data Collection | Easy Post Processing

Cooling Times and Duty Cycle Plot for TS5H
The cooling time above 350°C is roughly equal to the heating time up to a maximum of 1 minute of cooling. For example: after 2 minutes inspection and heating at 400°C the ultrasonic probe needs to cool for 1 minute before re-using it.

Navid Magbhooli, CEO & Sales Director at Kawoshkaran Co. Ltd, about SONOWALL 70
Kawoshkaran as the sole agent of SONOTEC [in Iran] is a well-known name in the NDT, QC and Inspection Equipment throughout Iran. Fortunately, after many site visits and demonstrations during exhibitions, the high quality and capabilities of SONOTEC ultrasonic devices had significant positive feedback. During training courses and on-site tests for our customers we saw the advantages of SONOTEC products over other famous competitors, especially the state of the art SONOWALL 70.
Compatibility with a wide range of transducers, large & high resolution A-Scan display with a robust design makes SONOWALL 70 the ideal and next-generation ultrasonic thickness gauge in the market. We would like to thank the SONOTEC team for their efforts and high quality after sales services and supports.
SONOWALL 70 - a top product which I was allowed to try out briefly. Even without operating instructions, I was able to operate the device in a very short time. Simple menu navigation (selectable in German), lightweight, usable for almost all applications in ultrasonic testing and innovations such as the RFID chip in the ultrasonic probe and device as well as WLAN dongle for app control have thrilled me. I hope to be able to present the device to my customers in all its facets [...].
