CHUM

Cross Hole Ultrasonic Monitor

The CHUM (Cross Hole Ultrasonic Monitor) uses the Crosshole Sonic Logging CSL testing method to perform high-resolution quality control of deep foundations.

  • Up to 150m (450') deep

  • Tomography support Standard  

  • ASTM D6760, AFNOR  NF P 94-160-1

  • Integrated support for DFI CSL Rating Criteria   - See CHUM software

Applications

For testing pile integrity using the CSL method, of medium to large size piles, with supporting access tubes. More about the crosshole test method

Fast and Reliable Crosshole Deep Pile Foundations Testing

Reliable 2trans-b.png

Reliable

  • 100% QA tests at 16-atmosphere pressure, vibration, and extreme temperature.

  • The CHUM case can tolerate drops and shocks.

  • 3 years warranty!

  • Rugged connectors, cables & sensors

  • 10 years of free software

Easy to Use

  • Usually, no training is needed, and the system can be self-taught in hours. (No expensive training days)

  • Supports AGC (Automatic Gain Control) for simple, fast, and accurate performance in dynamic conditions.

Top Performance

  • Up to 150m (450') deep. (deeper optional)

  • A clean signal on 3m and more on solid concrete.

  • The cleanest signal in the industry.

  • Productivity - 4 tubes X 25m piles - 8 such piles tested in 2 hours!

PSI_2 System offwhite.jpg

PSI

Parallel Seismic Instrument

PSI uses the well-known Parallel Seismic method to establish the depth of existing foundations (specifically for a pile or deep foundations) where the superstructure  (i.e. existing building) precludes access to the pile heads.

3DT

3 Dimensional Tomography
While normal (1D) CSL can only show the depth of an anomaly, tomography can help in the visualization of the shape, size, and location of anomalies. It is an analysis and presentation method of captured CSL data, that projects the logged results into two dimensional (2D) plane or three dimensional (3D) body. 

PET pile integrity test equipment

PET

Pile Echo Tester

The PET uses the Pulse-Echo method (PEM) for a quick pile integrity test (PIT test) on a site with a large number of piles. A pile test starts when the pile top is struck with a lightweight handheld hammer. The reflected wave is captured and analyzed by the PET's digital accelerometer to provide information regarding the length and shape of the pile.
