FAQ

Is it possible to detect grouting defects in tendon ducts with ultrasonic pulse echo?
Ultrasonic pulse echo is one of the only technologies that is able to detect grouting defects in tendon ducts. The technique is based on variations in the amplitude detectable in grouted and non-grouted sections. Fully grouted ducts give a partial reflection. Non-grouted sections give a total reflection.

Is it possible to measure steel fibre reinforced concrete with ultrasonic pulse-echo?
Yes. Unlike electromagnetic methods such as those employed by GPR and cover meters, which do not work on steel fibre reinforced concrete, ultrasonic pulse echo is well suited for measuring on this material. It has been successfully used for detecting voids, detecting cover depth to rebars and pipes and also for determining the thickness of shotcrete layers.

Is it possible to combine multiple stripe scans in the Pundit Live Array app?
With the Pundit Live Array App, you can create a single stripe scan limited to 1.5m in length. If you wish to combine multiple stripe scans to create a wide-area 3D image, this can be done using the Pundit Vision software. The Pundit Vision software also allows the combination of orthogonally collected stripe scans to create the most detailed images possible using ultrasonic pulse-echo technology. https://www.screeningeagle.com/en/products/browse-by-category/software/pundit-vision
