Shrinkage Limit Set
Model No. : PIT
The ProfoScope cover meter and rebar locator is the simplest to use system in the Proceq range.
Combining the full capabilities of a conventional cover meter system in a simpler, more compact package with no loss of accuracy. The unit can be used to find the depth from the face of the concrete to the top of reinforcing steel, to locate steel within concrete and to estimate the rebar diameter.
Concrete cover measurement and rebar location needs to be fast and accurate. The ProfoScope Cover Meter has a unique real-time rebar-visualisation allowing the contractor to actually “see” the location of the rebar beneath the concrete surface. This is coupled with rebar proximity indicators and optical and acoustical locating aids. These unique features combine to make the task of locating rebars a simple and efficient process, saving time and money for contractors and providing them with the information they need to do their job fast.
The concrete cover to the closest reinforcing bar is continuously displayed on the right side of the ProfoScope’s Display. When the device is directly over and aligned parallel to a reinforcing bar the system will display an accurate cover. If the reinforcing is spaced at or less 150mm a correction factor can be entered to ensure an accurate cover measurement, other system will often require a separate probe head to perform the same job.
The previously mentioned riflescope visualisation makes finding the exact location of the steel reinforcement as simple as if the concrete were invisible. Other cover meters display a signal strength and the centre is located by passing over the bar where the signal is strongest than shuffling the probe backwards until the peak is relocated, the ProfoScope is slide towards a bar with its approach clearly illustrated and stopped the instant the cursors align, the unit beeps and the red LED light shines.
Rebar Diameter Estimation
At cover depths less than 64mm the ProfoScope Cover Meter will estimate rebar size (diameters) with a single button press, this measurement assumes that there is no other steel within 150mm of the central measurement point and the bar is parallel to the ProfoScope.
