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.


Transducers for UPV testing.PCTS apply UPV technology as it is totally non-destructive, quick to use and reflects the properties of the interior of a body of concrete. It is particularly valuable in circumstances where a considerable number of readings are required for the assessment of uniformity of hardened concrete.


CTS Technicians are available to:

  • Determine concrete uniformity

  • Detect cracks and honeycombing

  • Estimate in-situ strength

  • Monitor strength development

  • Assess concrete deterioration
