PCTE are the leading suppliers of
non-destructive testing equipment for construction materials in Australia.
Proceq of Switzerland has been making non-destructive testing equipment for
concrete and metal for more than 50 years, they were our first supplier and we
still have a strong relationship with them. We are very proud to be able
When building in
aggressive marine environments it is important that the concrete mix used is of
a suitably quality (i.e. low permeability) to resist the ingress of chloride
ions. Once corrosion has begun calculating the propagation time before the
structure becomes unserviceable requires an understanding of the corrosion
rate. Resistivity is a measurement of the electrical resistance per unit volume
of concrete, is related to both these properties. In fact US research shows an
incredible correlation between RCP and saturated Resistivity (see
for more details). With Proceq’s new
resistivity measurement has never been simpler or more reliable.
is a third generation device which incorporates a number of improvements to
previous resistivity probes;
Automatic current and measurement methodology
adjustment to ensure proper contact and quality data collection. Bad probe
