Civil Testing


Name of Equipment: Rebound Hammer
Name of the Test: Compressive Strength
Specification of Equipment/ Facility: Pre-programmed statistical methods assures an error free, rapid determination of the rebound value. Reduced dispersion and direct conversion to compressive strength based on validated curves, regional curves or user defined curves bring improved accuracy to compressive strength estimates. All data is automatically saved and the last 20 series may be reviewed in the data list.
Equipment calibrated (Yes / No) : YES
Used for: Determination of the elastic properties or strength of concrete, mainly surface hardness and penetration resistance.
Scope in industrial consultancy (In detail): The Rebound Hammer equipment is a device used to measure the elastic properties or strength of concrete, mainly surface hardness and penetration resistance. This equipment is widely used as a non destructive testing equipment.



Name of Equipment: Ultrasonic Pulse Velocity Apparatus (PUNDIT PLUS)
Name of the Test: Quality & Defects in Concrete
Specification of Equipment/ Facility: Uses Ultrasonic Pulse Echo (UPE) technology Measurement performance, Integrated waveform display, On-line data acquisition, USB interface and data analysis software, Open interface.
Equipment calibrated (Yes / No) : YES
Used for: Ultrasonic testing provides information on the strength and uniformity of concrete and can be used to detect and localize voids, pipes, cracks and defects.
Scope in industrial consultancy (In detail) : Major applications are slab thickness measurements and the location of voids and delaminations. Ultrasonic testing provides information on the strength and uniformity of concrete and can be used to detect and localize voids, pipes, cracks and defects. It can be used effectively where access is restricted to a single side.



Name of Equipment: Corrosion and rebar locator
Name of the Test: Corrosion Resistance and Rebar Information
Specification of Equipment/ Facility: Digital interface for interference free communication with Profometer Touch screen, Positioning sensor records automatically orientation of the probe (horizontal, vertical, overhead), LED indicates proximity and location of rebars, Integrated Spot Probe for measurements in corners and where space is limited, Detachable Probe Cart for smooth measuring with on-board wireless path measuring system.
Equipment calibrated (Yes / No) : YES
Used for: Proceq’s Profometer Corrosion instrument is used to assess the durability of concrete structures by measuring corrosion potential, concrete resistivity and permeability.
:Scope in industrial consultancy (In detail): The construction industry is rapidly moving towards performance based specifications for concrete durability of new structures; at the same time the assessing of service life of actual reinforced concrete elements is being a subject of increasing concern in the industry. Half-cell potential, concrete resistivity and concrete cover air permeability are the main and most widely accepted indicators of likelihood of corrosion and estimated durability of a concrete structure.
