Papworths Construction Testing Service - NDT
Concrete Non-destructive Testing


Impact Echo

PCTS offer Impact Echo Thickness Certification, an acoustic non-destructive test method used to assess the dimensions and integrity of concrete and masonry.

Half Cell Potential

PCTS measure the potential of an embedded reinforcing bar relative to a reference half-cell placed on the concrete surface.

Schmidt Hammer

PCTS use Proceq Schmidt Hammers to measure the rebound value of a test impact on a structural member. PCTS can quickly and easily determine the compressive strength of hardened concrete and other construction materials.

Ultrasonic Pulse Echo

CTS offer Ultrasonic certification. UPE is a method for non-destructive evaluation of concrete. The output from the MIRA UPE testing equipment is shown on screen immediately after testing for on-site flaw detection.

PCTS - Experienced technicians, reliable results! We offer the very best value service when it comes to non-destructive testing.

Ground Penetrating Radar

PCTS offer Reinforcement Mapping and Cover Certification.

PCTS use Ground Penetrating Radar technology to determine concrete cover as well as locate embedded reinforcement steel.

PCTS offer sub-surface imaging and reinforcement mapping on- site and in the form of a test certificate.

Electrical Resistivity Test

PCTS carry out Electrical Resistivity Testing using the Wenner Four Point Probe to assess the quality / uniformity of concrete at various depths.

Cathodic Protection

In some cases of
very heavy reinforcement as the life
expectancy may be too short use a spreadsheet to
estimate an anodes life to check it is
suitable for the application. An
impressed current cathodic protection system may be
more appropriate.

Ultrasonic Pulse Velocity

PCTS use Ultrasonic Pulse Velocity technology to measure the transit time of a pulse between transducers placed on the surface of a body of concrete.

The pulse velocity is then calculated using the measured path length through the concrete.
