General Description

Pundit Ultrasonic Pulse Velocity Tester is measurement of pulse velocity can be used for the determination of the uniformity of concrete, the presence of cracks or voids, changes in properties with time and in the determination of dynamic physical properties. EN 12504:4 gives guidance on testing fresh concrete, hardened concrete and concrete in structures. It specifies a method for the determination of the velocity of propagation of pulses of ultrasonic longitudinal waves in concrete.
TMC-3850 is an ultrasonic pulse velocity test instrument which is used to examine the quality of concrete. It features online data acquisition, waveform analysis and full remote control of all transmission parameters. Along with the traditional transit time and pulse velocity measurement, TMC-3850 offers path length measurement, perpendicular crack depth measurement and surface velocity measurement. Optimized pulse shaping gives greater transmission range at lower voltage levels. This, coupled with automated combination of the transmitter voltage and the receiver gain, ensures an optimum received signal level,guaranteeing accurate and stable measurements. An integrated waveform display allows manual triggering of the received waveform. Pundit Lab+ offers other features such as the possibility to estimate compressive strength by Sonreb Method in combination with a rebound hammer value.
