Elcometer 280 Pulsed DC Holiday Detector Inspection Kit

The Elcometer 280 is a ‘stick type’ holiday detector which has been designed to make pulsed DC high voltage holiday detection safer, easier and more reliable than ever before.

Using state of the art electronics, the Elcometer 280 allows users to inspect coatings - without connecting the earth return lead to the component substrate - ideal for inspecting large surfaces and pipelines.

The Elcometer 280 uses the high voltage pulsed DC technique to detect holidays in coatings - even if the coating is damp, dirty or slightly conductive.

From the two stage safety switch, bright LED’s and screen icons signifying when the high voltage is on, to the extended ribbing to protect the user from spark creep, the Elcometer 280 sets the standard for high voltage measurement safety.

Coating Porosity Detection using the Elcometer 280 Pulsed DC Holiday Detector

When it comes to testing the porosity of protective coatings on pipelines, ballast tanks, bridges and other steel structures; or when you are testing for flaws in coatings on concrete; typically the high voltage porosity or holiday detection method is used.

An Introduction to Pinholes and Holidays – Porosity Detection

Corrosion is caused by two things – a steel substrate and oxygen, while contaminants such as water can accelerate the process. The coating is there to protect the steel from oxygen and contaminants. A flaw in the coating can leave the substrate poorly protected, or in some cases completely exposed.
