Pile Integrity Test equipment PET by Piletest

PET

Pile Echo Tester

PET is used to test the integrity of deep pile foundations. PET Uses the pulse-echo method (PEM) for pile integrity testing (PIT). A pile test starts when the pile top is struck with a hammer, and the PET accelerometer records the reflected waves, which are displayed as a reflectogram.

  • Smart Trigger for ease of use

  • Automatic Impulse sorting

  • ASTM D5882-16, AFNOR P160-2,4

  • Rugged and IP68 waterproof

Applications

This is the primary method used in the industry for a quick pile integrity test to control the quality of piles on a site. This simple and fast test method makes it practical to test 100% of the piles, even on sites with many piles.

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. 

CHUM cross hole ultrasonic monitor system from Piletest

CHUM

Cross Hole Ultrasonic Monitor

CHUM supports Cross-hole Sonic Logging (CSL) for testing the integrity of deep pile foundations. It also supports on-site tomography measurements for real-time two-dimensional Tomography (2DT) presentation. Based on that tomography data, true 3D Tomography analysis can be presented.
