James Instruments Inc. Introduces Rebarscope
Rebarscope Introduced by James Instruments Inc. for Rebar
Location and Bar Size Determination as well as Locating Other Metal
Objects in Concrete, Masonry and
Other Construction Materials
Chicago Illinois, October 20th, 2011 - James Instruments Inc. the worldwide leading manufacturer of non-destructive test equipment for concrete and other construction materials and coarse grained materials, has introduced the Rebarscope for locating steel reinforcemnt ( rebar ) as well as determine the bar size. It will locate other metal objects such as copper and aluminium pipe, as well. The equipment will locate in concrete and masonry as well as any other non - metallic construction material. Applications include structural engineers analyzing an existing steel reinforcing bar network, determining depth of cover of the steel reinforcing bar, as well as mapping utility lines or rebar inside the concrete or other material being tested. This is the fifth generation of rebar locator developed by James Instruments. This level of commitment to building has brought the features sought out by professionals most of all.
The Rebarscope features the following:
The Rebarscope has three different options for the end user. The Rebarscope Basic which allows the user to locate metal objects as well as determine bar size. The Rebarscope with Rebarlinx software allowing the user to store and later upload data to a personal computer. Finally, the Rebarscope Complete System which includes the optional Scan Cart and Rebarscope software allowing the user to not only scan for object but to log and store the distance between the metal objects as well.
The Rebarscope is an exciting development in our long history of rebar locators says Michael Hoag President of James Instruments Inc.,ÂťBy using the latest in electronics technology we have been able to provide many solutions that our customers have been asking for.
James Instruments specializes in Non-Destructive testing
equipment for concrete and other construction materials.
Central to the improvement of the concrete infrastructure are
tools that evaluate the condition of existing construction. Destructive
and non-destructive testing (NDT) techniques are applied. Destructive
tests can provide direct information, but are relatively expensive,
time-consuming and cause damage to the structure. Destructive test
results often cannot be evaluated using statistical approaches because
the number of locations in the structure that can be tested without
damage to the structure is limited. On the other hand, NDT techniques
are relatively inexpensive to apply, and they can detect, localize, and
characterize flaws and damage in concrete, wood and other construction
material structures without leaving any undesirable discontinuities or
causing damage to concrete members.
James Instruments Inc. is the leading manufacturer of non-destructive test equipment for construction materials, specifically concrete, ceramic, wood, masonry, mortar, gypsum and other coarse grained materials. We supply the instruments that: measure strength, both compressive and tensile, locate rebar and other objects in concrete and masonry, determine density and analyze materials ultrasonically, analyze corrosion and, finally, determine moisture in concrete and other construction materials. And more. James Instruments -- rugged, quality equipment for field use -- backed by factory service and an ongoing program of research and development.
