Combine rebar assessment with corrosion analysis

Rebar location is a central activity for anyone involved in on-
site testing of reinforced structures. Locating rebars is in fact a common need when drilling, cutting coring as well as a preliminary operation required for most other non-destructive investigations. Other typical applications include conformity check of new buildings, investigations on unknown structures and corrosion analysis. The eddy current pulse induction principle is the only imaging technology not influenced by concrete composition and humidity, which leads to a high cover accuracy under every scenario.

Since the early 1970’s, Proceq has been addressing those different needs through a continuous development effort which leads to today’s complete portfolio ready to deliver the best features needed for any specific application.

Roll Hardness Testing

Roll Hardness Testing

Roll hardness testing for paper, film, foil, textile, cardboard and leather

Out of round rolls and other defects such as corrugations caused by non-uniform roll hardness profiles are a major cause of lost production for both producers and converters alike. A reliable measurement of the roll hardness profile is of critical importance in deciding whether a roll is good or bad. Proceq’s instruments give the production staff the support they need to test quickly and reliably the roll hardness and to interpret the results as efficiently as possible. It enables the user to quickly and precisely diagnose roll imperfections, hardness inconsistencies and uneven winding, thereby preventing problems for printing and converting operations.

Strength Testing

Strength Testing

Perfect to evaluate bond strength of coatings and cementitious material

The quality of concrete repairs is determined by the adhesive
 strength between the repair material and the substrate. Pull-off testing is the most widely used test method to assess bond strength. The Proceq DY-2 family of automated pull-off testers covers the complete range of pull-off applications with unmatched ease of operation and the ability to store a complete record of the test. The Proceq DY-2 with its integrated feedback controlled motor provides a regulated load rate as specified by all standards, thereby providing a fully automated test for the most repeatable results. It is lightweight for easy operation even on walls and overhead.

Carboteq

Carboteq

High precision wear indication of carbon ceramic brake discs

Using our expertise and a close collaboration with BSCCB (Brembo SGL Carbon Ceramic Brakes), Proceq was able to design Carboteq – a unique and patented instrument to accurately measure brake disc wear. Carboteq is based on pulse-induction technology using a specific arrangement of inductive coils and advanced signal analysis to compensate for influences of material characteristics and brake disc geometries. The alignment laser ensures the Carboteq instrument is always placed exactly at the right spot to read the pre-engraved Carboteq value on the brake discs. Each Carboteq is extensively tested in Switzerland and certified by official certification bodies and is thereby conforming to highest quality and automobile standards.

Corrosion, Resistivity and Permeability

Corrosion, Resistivity and Permeability

Corrosion potential, concrete resistivity and permeability

The construction industry is rapidly moving towards performance based specifications for concrete durability of new structures; at the same time the assessing of service life of actual reinforced concrete elements is being a subject of increasing concern in the industry. Half-cell potential, concrete resistivity and concrete cover air permeability are the main and most widely accepted indicators of likelihood of corrosion and estimated durability of a concrete structure.

Pundit

Pundit

To assess structural integrity and localize defects in concrete and rock

Structural defects cause serious damages and collapses. Ultrasonic testing provides information on the strength and uniformity of concrete, rock, composites, ceramics, wood, epoxy, refractory materials and can be used to detect and localize voids, pipes, cracks and defects. The ultrasonic pulse echo (UPE) technology extends ultrasonic pulse velocity (UPV) applications to objects where access is restricted to a single side. Proceq offers the most versatile range of ultrasonic testing instruments.

Schmidt

Schmidt

The Original Schmidt was invented and introduced into the market by Proceq in the 1950s. Since that time it has become the world’s first and most widely used instrument for non-destructive estimation of concrete strength properties, asphalt, mortar, rock and paper. Proceq rebound hammers are available in models with different impact energies, each designed for a specific test application. The SilverSchmidt is the latest generation of rebound hammer combining the ground breaking features of the OriginalSchmidt with the best of today’s technology. It is the first integrated rebound hammer featuring true rebound value and unmatched repeatability.

Flaw Detection

Flaw Detection

To measure thickness, determine material properties and detect flaws in many materials including forgings, composites, plastics and welds

Incorrect or missed inspections put your comp
onent’s integrity at risk. Proceq’s advanced ultrasonic flaw detectors and thickness gauges provide intuitive measurement solutions to ensure part integrity. The Proceq Flaw Detector 100 is a flexible high tech ultrasonic inspection instrument. The basic UT model can be upgraded with the Ultrasonic Time of Flight Diffraction (TOFD) and Phased Array (PA) modes anytime and anywhere, even on site. The Zonotip with its shockproof housing and fast processor delivers reliable thickness measurements of materials including ferrous and non-ferrous metals, polymers, composites, glass, ceramics and epoxies.
