Ferro scanning can be approached in a range of ways to ensure cost effective and non intrusive solutions which are time efficient, adapting the amount of equipment and detail of the scan according to exactly what you need to know.
Just as the data from ferro scanning can be analysed and presented in a range of ways, tailored to suit all design parameters and providing instant diagnostic results through the cutting edge software used in Hilti certified equipment, the scan itself can vary in level of detail and time taken depending on what you need to know. Scanning at full detail takes time and produces a large amount of information, for many requirements scaling down to a more simple approach is just as effective and far more cost efficient for you.
Quick scan and mark
The Hilti PS1000 can be used to quick scan areas of concrete for rebar or reinforcement detection, alerting the professional operator to obstructions within that can be simply marked on the surface of the concrete to guide drilling and boring. Ideal for a fast turnaround when you simply need to know if you can drill into concrete at a particular point. This kind of scan can be carried out very quickly with a minimum of equipment and is for use on all concrete structures.
Full scan with data
Using a wider range of equipment and taking around half an hour per square metre to ensure the most detailed and accurate readings possible, the full scan service produces a large amount of data and 3D imaging which can be supplied to you on a memory stick, transferred to your site computers via bluetooth or can provide instant diagnostic results right there on-screen.
Ideal for producing detailed reports with full 3D imaging the full scan approach is often used for the most critical parts of a construction looking in intense detail at a small section of floor, wall or other surface.
An increasingly in demand service we often provide to the nuclear industry, where our scanning analysis is used to test pre-cast concrete units for cracks and other elements of structural integrity. This service is ideal as part of ongoing quality control or safety testing concrete being utilised in safety-critical environments with the ferro scanning unit adapting for use on all concrete structures.
