is a global leader in the development and distribution of portable, non destructive concrete test equipment
that enables contractors to improve their performance while lowering their costs for on-site investigations of concrete properties.Rebar DetectionsThe rebar detection instrument Profoscope has a unique real-time visualization mechanism, allowing the contractor to actually see the location of rebars beneath the concrete surface. The Profoscope+
features data storage for automatic collection of data to make rebar detection more efficient.
Concrete Test Hamme The Proceq rebound hammer is a device to measure the elastic properties or strength of concrete or rock. Each rebound hammer is built for a different purpose in order to meet the specific needs of the customer. Proceq invented the world’s first and now most widely used equipment for analyzing concrete strength properties, the Original Schmidt. This rebound hammer is available in models with different impact energies, each designed for a specific test application.
Moisture & Corrosion AnalysisSince reinforced concrete will be subject to a corrosion process that ultimately leads to a total failure of the structure, corrosion monitoring is essential. In the first stage, aggressive elements penetrate into the structure. On reaching the rebars, high concentrations of those elements attack the passive layer of hydrated iron oxide that protects the rebar against corrosion. Rust begins to form which eventually leads to structural failure. Early diagnosis and monitoring of seemingly healthy concrete cover allows pre-emptive corrosion control measures to reduce unwanted risks.Ultrasonic TestingUltrasonic Pulse Velocity (UPV) testing of concrete is based on the pulse velocity method to provide information on the uniformity of concrete, cavities, cracks and defects. The pulse velocity in a material depends on its density and its elastic properties which in turn are related to the quality and the compressive strength of the concrete. It is therefore possible to obtain information about the properties of components by sonic investigations.
Pull-Off TestingThe Proceq DY-2 Family of automated pull-off testers covers the complete range of pull-off applications with unmatched ease of operation and a unique capability to store a complete record of the test.Pull-off testing is one of the most widely used test methods in the construction industry. This is reflected in the huge number of standards dedicated to the method. Permeability AnalysisThe permeability of concrete at the surface is a major factor in determining the durability of concrete structures. A reliable permeability test of the concrete cover is therefore crucial – not only in the laboratory but also at the building site. One factor determining the durability of concrete is the ease with which air can penetrate into concrete.
