As part of our comprehensive structural investigation service, we offer the Ferroscan FS 10, a portable detection, measuring and mapping system which provides an immediate liquid crystal image of the reinforcement within the survey area.
Reinforcement analysis may be undertaken using two main modes of operation, Ferroscan Quickscans and Ferroscan Image Scans.
In the Quickscan mode, the data recorded includes the position and cover to reinforcing bars lying at right angles to the direction of the scan. Multiple scans each of up to 10m in length are possible.
Ferroscan Image Scans
Image scans produce a full image of the reinforcement within the scanning areas. The data gathered can be used to supply the following information:-
- Arrangement and position of reinforcement
- Depth of cover
- Indicative bar diameter
The images may be evaluated by viewing transverse or longitudinal sections, ‘slices’ at different depths, and by producing statistical information.
All scanned data can be downloaded onto a personal computer for further analysis, interpretation and printed output.
