Used for assessing the probable rate of corrosion in reinforcing bars with the electric resistivity measurement method.
A highly permeable concrete has a high conductivity with reduced electrical resistance. The knowledge of the electrical resistance of a concrete allows to measure the possible rate of corrosion of steel reinforced bars.
The test is simple to perform and requires only two 6.5 mm diameter holes drilled to a depth of 8 mm. Inject a small amount of conductive gel into each hole and insert the probes. The resistivity value is immediately displayed.
Measuring range: 0.5 to 20 kΩ cm, with 0.1 kΩ resolution.
2-probe array spacing: 5 cm
Display: LCD 4 ¼ digit
Battery operated with 100 hours operating time
The instrument is supplied complete with drill bit, gel, template, accessories, carrying case.
Dimensions: 400x270x130 mm
