Papworths Construction Testing Service - NDT

PERTH CONSTRUCTION TESTING SERVICES

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.


Cathodic Protection of Concrete

Due to the concrete’s inhomogenity chloride and oxygen concentrations differ strongly from location to location. These concentration cells cause corrosion due to potential differences, cathodic protection levelize the potential differences.


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

NDT - 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.

Introduction

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.

Application

CTS Technicians are available to:

  • Determine concrete uniformity

  • Detect cracks and honeycombing

  • Estimate in-situ strength

  • Monitor strength development

  • Assess concrete deterioration

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.


Impulse Response

PCTS offer IR certification, a method of non-destructive evaluation of concrete based on the use of impact-generated stress (sound) waves that propagate through the structure and are reflected by internal flaws and external surfaces.


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.
