ETher NDE News Colour Coded Pencil Probes Now Available

At ETher NDE we would like to introduce the new Pencil Probe colour coding system to all our current and new customers. Such a simple yet effective product update, the new colour coding system for pencil probes means that you can now easily recognise the frequency of your ETher NDE Pencil Probe, simply by the colour of its handle.

What colour means what?

Red = 200kHz
Yellow = 500kHz
Blue = 2MHz
White = 6MHz

We hope that all NDT Inspectors that currently use our Pencil Probes will find the new colour coding useful when working on-site and in harsh environments.

To order your Pencil Probes with the new colour coded handles, please contact

ETher NDE News Newest Team Member at ETher NDE

We are very pleased to announce another new member of the ETher NDE team, this time in our manufacturing department.

Joining the team is Aitken Wilde, who has taken on every task with enthusiasm and determination especially with the building of the more tricky probe types. The speed that Aitken has grasped his work is admirable and he has shown a real interest in NDT in general which is great for both his and ETher NDE’s future. In fact, Aitken will be attending a NDT appreciation course later this month.

John Hansen, MD said, “Customer demand for ETher NDE products has grown strongly and in order to continue to provide our customers with the high levels of service they rightfully expect we are pleased to welcome Aitken Wilde to our manufacturing team as "Trainee Manufacturing Technician”. Aitken settled in very quickly and is now a fully productive member of our manufacturing team. ETher NDE will continue to invest in young people to ensure it maintains its industry leading levels of customer service”.
