Know more about Concrete Resistivity Meters

Posted by PCTE on April 3rd, 2015

Building materials and their performance in real structures Concrete resistivity meter is one such incredible tool that can measure accurately in a matter of a minute.  The credibility this instrument has made it the most widely used equipment in the construction industry.

Concrete is one of the essential ingredients of a building. When a concrete mix is designed its permeability is a key measure of its performance. Resistivity testing has a correlated relationship to rapid chloride penetration testing and is commonly used in the United States to replace this method of assessing permeability. In marine environments reinforcing corrosion due to the effects of penetrating chloride ions is the main cause of structural deterioration this is a vital measure of long term durability of the concrete mix.

Corrosion is one of the major concerns of the building industry today. There are innumerable equipment’s used to test the corrosion activity occurring within materials used by the construction industry, and the resistivity meter is one useful tool in thie are of non-destructive testing equipment. Specifically resitivity is a useful measure of how quickly corrosion is able to progress within concrete structures once conditions are right for iniation.

Thus, resistivity meter have real applications in assesing new structures, determining the properties of older stuctures and when desigining and installing cathoid protection.

A resistivity meter is an extremely portable instrument, which can be easily carried to the building sites or any such areas where the problem is envisaged.

There are many kinds of these measurement devices available online today. Since they are highly portable and easier to handle, having one always at hand, can help in getting outstanding results for any concrete surface you are constructing.

About the Company:

PCTE supplies a range of equipment from around the world to offer you a one stop shop with all of the latest equipment. Concrete Non Destructive Testing (NDT) comprises testing a property of concrete, largely without damaging the concrete to assess some parameter which either directly or indirectly provides a required characteristic of the concrete or its embedment’s.
