Magnetometric test

Work civile

The pacometric test, exploits the magnetic properties of the steel and is widely used for the survey of the reinforcing bars in a completely non-destructive way. It is a quick, simple, safe and repeatable type of survey.

The instrument used, also called pacometer, allow us to determine the position, direction and number of the bars of the main and secondary reinforcement, provides the measurement of concrete cover up to about nine centimeters, and makes an estimation of the diameter of the bars .

A further potential of the tool is to assess non-destructively, the state of preservation of the reinforcement by measuring the oxidation potential of the reinforcement, i.e measuring the state of corrosion.
