Compression and flexural testing machines

Computerised Automatic Control System and hydraulic unit perform a number of function as for example:

-Rapid piston approach
-User defined load ramp
-Failure detection
-Unloading etc.


Chloride content

For the determination of the chloride ion concentration in concrete to enable the identification of the risk of chloride induced reinforcement corrosion.


Chloride ion penetration

This test method allows evaluation of chloride permeability
characteristics of concrete. The test is performed to monitor
the amount of electrical current passing through concrete
cores or cylinders.


Crack monitoring

Determining the length changes in different parts of a structure,
different models are available depending on the nature and
location of crack.

  Elastic modulus of concreter

The Sercomp 7 can be programmed to perform up to 100 ramps with the suitable accessories, for the determination of the Elastic Modulus of Concrete either in the Analogic mode or in the Digital mode with Datalog Electronic compressometers with electric Strain Gauges. Selecting the Digital mode, the machine has to be fitted with an additional pressure
transducer and three way connector, to send the signal the Datalog.


Metal location in concrete

Finds rebar and metallic pipes, conduit, metal studs, junction boxes, and metal framing up to 150 mm deep-before drilling or remodelling. It scans through most non-metallic construction material, including solid concrete.


Oxygen concrete permeameter

This method, which is applicable to cast and cored concrete
specimens, concerns the determination of the concrete permeability
to oxygen conforming to the Hagen Poiseulle relationship.

  Pullout force

Determination of the pullout strength of hardened concrete in test
specimens or structures by measuring the force required to pull an
embedded metal insert and the attached concrete fragment from a
concrete mass.

  Pull off strength (Bond Strength)

Suitable for applications concerning testing repairs of concrete
structures where the bond strength between two layers is an
important factor. The same principle is applied to test the adhesive
strength of different type of surface coating like cement plaster, lime,
wall plaster, etc. on its support.

  Rebound hammer

Different models available, from the standard one to the more sophisticated digital model. Non-destructive testing of the surface of hardened concrete in order to evaluate the strength in various parts of structure. The digital hammer, which is battery operated, can be easily connected to a PC or serial printer via the RS 232 port. A large permanent memory can store up to 5000 results.


Resistivity meter

Assessing the possible rate of corrosion in reinforcing bars. the time at which corrosion of steel may commence and the rate at which it may proceed is dependent upon properties of the cement paste and the permeability of the concrete. knowledge of the electrical resistance of a concrete can provide A measure of the possible rate of corrosion of steel embedded in it.

  Windsor pin penetrometer

Since the depth of penetration is inversely proportional to compressive
strength, the device provides a fast and safe way of determining the
In situ strength of material, to maximum of 37 MPa.
