Non-Destructive Testing

03_NTDE

Our Non-Destructive Testing & Evaluation arsenal includes an array of state-of-the-art equipment. Infrared (IR) cameras (using surface temperature variations) and electrical moisture meters and scanners (using sub-surface variations in dielectric permittivity and conductivity) provide an indication of water saturated roofs, walls, and floors. Ground penetrating radar (GPR) antennas, covermeters, and pachometers (using reflected and induced electromagnetic pulses) and sonic and ultrasonic detection tools (using reflected stress waves) indicate the presence or absence of metal (pipes, beams, rebar, cables, ties, anchors), air, and water (PVC conduit, missing grout, delaminations, voids) in concrete and masonry. Mass magnetic probes (MMP), Schmidt rebound hammers, coating adhesion and anchor pull-out testers, borescopes, thickness gauges, and other devices are used to assess and track the health of roof systems and masonry, concrete, and steel.
