ABSTRACT
The technology for measuring thickness is an ultrasonic non-destructive measurement technique widely used to measure the thickness for various materials. It is fast, reliable, versatile and unlike a micrometer requires access to only one side of the test piece. Using the ultrasonic technique, almost any material can be measured: metal, plastic, composite, fiberglass, ceramics, rubber and glass. Ultrasonic measurement is completely non-destructive and does not require cutting or sectioning the material. To extend the lifetime of the cylinders, they will be subject to examination, and investigations to assess the technical condition using ultrasonic test method of wall thickness.

Keywords: ultrasonic technique, cylinder, wall thickness, non-destructive
