Abstract
An ultrasonic converter for a device for the non-invasive measurement of the saddle fat thickness and the muscle thickness of pork carcass halves has a transmit converter (24) and a receive converter (25) in a housing (21) having coupling layers (26, 27) consisting of a multitude of waveguide elements (38) which extend between the upper limit (39) and the lower limit (40) of the coupling layers (36, 37). The waveguide elements (38) consist of flexible plastic, in particular PVC or polycarbonate. In this way, a flexible coupling layer is formed, permitting the dispensation of coupling media when ultrasonic measurements are performed on slaughtered animals.
