USA May 2nd,
manufacturer of the world's most advanced Non Destructive Test
Equipment for construction materials exhibited at the ACI spring
convention April 3rd
to the 7th,
2011. James Instruments Inc has exhibited at the ACI conventions since
1999. The company has found the convention an exciting place to meet
with customers, present the latest technology and learn about the
latest developments in the industry.
ACI convention represents a significant chance for our customers to try
the equipment and to provide us with feedback on what they are looking
for. On display were;
The most advanced System for Ultrasonic Pulse Velocity in Concrete,
Wood, Ceramic and other Coarse grained and Construction Materials. This
test method rapidly and easily allows you to locate cracks, voids, rot
and other areas of inhomgenity in the material under test. Complete
System includes transducers, instrumentation unit, cables and software
for PC, Conforms to ASTM C - 597 and other standards
Microwave Meter Used for the Rapid Determination of Moisture Content in
Sand and Other Fine or Coarse Aggregates. It is fast and easy to use as
well as completely portable.
provide the most economical, quick and easy concrete compressive
strength test in the field. It will also provide an indices
of hardness and compressive strength for other construction materials.
Conforms to ASTM C-805 and other International Standards.
Instruments Inc. had a staff of two to greet customers and meet with
the industry. Nestor Chonillo, Vice President, and Nelson
Flores Inside Sales were on hand to answer customers questions.
ACI convention gives us the opportunity to hear the demand of just not
your everyday concrete professional but also the University professors
and students “says Nestor Chonillo, Vice President of James Instruments
Instruments Inc. student award was also presented at the ACI spring
convention for research on NDT of concrete. James Instruments Inc Vice
President, Nestor Chonillo had the honor to present the 2011 award to
Ph.D. Seong-Hoon Kee for his research titled “Low- Cost Piezoceramic
sensors for health monitoring of concrete structure”. His research
paper was chosen as the best of 13 entries by a panel of experienced
NDT professional. Also pictured is Professor Ph.D Jinying Zhu which was
the advisor for Seong-Hoon Kee during his research. “It is very
exciting to see the great research that these students conducting. This
was a record year for entries and I’m the sure that number will keep
rising from this point forward” says Nestor Chonillo, Vice President of
James Instruments Inc.
Concrete Institute (ACI) is a nonprofit technical and educational
society organized in 1904 and is one of the world's leading authorities
on concrete technology. ACI is a forum for the discussion of all
matters related to concrete and the development of solutions to
problems. ACI conducts this forum through conventions and meetings; the
and technical publications; chapter activities; and technical committee
work. As its chartered objective states, its purpose is "to provide a
comradeship in finding the best ways to do concrete work of all kinds
and in spreading that knowledge."
Instruments specalises 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 structures without leaving any undesirable
discontinuities or causing damage to concrete members.
Instruments Inc. is the leading manufacturer of non-destructive test
equipment for construction materials, specifically concrete, ceramic,
wood and other coarse grained materials. We supply the instruments that
measure and analyze strength, structure, corrosion and moisture in
concrete and other construction materials. And more.
