The Elcometer 130 SSP Soluble Salt Profiler provides fast and accurate measurement of the level and density of soluble salts – over 4 times faster than other Bresle equivalent methods. The new Elcometer 130 SSP allows you to complete a Bresle equivalent test in just over two minutes. The multi-point conductivity sensors enable the Elcometer 130 SSP to accurately display salt concentration, showing exactly where the contamination lies and generating full colour salt density maps in 2D or 3D.
The Elcometer 145 is used in conjunction with the Elcometer 142 Dust Tape Test kit, to assess the quantity and size of dust particles on surfaces prepared for painting. The Dust Tape Roller presses the Elcometer 142 Dust Tape to the surface using a controlled constant force as required by BS EN ISO 8502-3 (BS 7079-B3:1993). It removes the subjective nature of a person trying to apply an even force to the tape and will result in a more objective result … Read More
The Elcometer 142 Dust Tape Test Kit allows assessment of the quantity and size of dust particles on surfaces prepared for painting. Dust on blast cleaned surfaces can reduce coating adhesion, leading to premature coating failure and sub-standard coating finish. The kit can be used in accordance with the recommendations of BS EN ISO 8502-3 either as a pass/fail test or as a permanent record of the presence of dust. Supplied in a carry case for use in the field … Read More
The Elcometer 138/2 Surface Contamination Kit provides a quick and easy method of measuring surface contaminants. It comes supplied with test strips to measure: pH Iron (ferrous ion) Chloride Salt Measuring the level of contaminants on a surface prior to application of the coating is essential to ensure the quality of the coating, and that its optimum lifetime is achieved. If the coating is applied to a contaminated surface, which is not properly prepared, it could fail prematurely resulting in costly re-coating and … Read More
It is essential that the level of contaminants on a surface is measured prior to application of the coating to ensure the quality of the coating and that its optimum lifetime is achieved. If the coating is applied to a contaminated surface, which is not properly prepared, it could fail prematurely resulting in costly re-coating and high maintenance costs.
Designed to accurately measure surface chloride, sulphate and nitrate ions in minutes. The Elcometer 134 CSN – Chlorides, Sulphates & Nitrates ‘CSN Salts’ kit offers a single kit solution for testing in the field. All the components of the Elcometer CSN Test Kits are pre-measured and pre-dosed for trouble free testing. Results are recorded in parts per million (ppm) requiring no complicated calculations. Elcometer 134 CSN tests are all designed to use a ratio of 1:1 for easy conversation to … Read More
If the chloride levels in the wash water are too high, it will promote premature corrosion, shortening the life of both steel and concrete structures. The Elcometer 134W Chloride Ion Test Kit for Water / Liquids is used to monitor recycled water (after it has been applied) to establish effectiveness of salt removal, this test is ideal when mixing concrete and when washing steel.
The Elcometer 134S Chloride Detection Kit for Blast Cleaned Surfaces is used to ensure that the chloride has been removed as it is essential that the surface is tested before the coating is applied. Chloride salts left on the surface before the first coat is applied can result in the coating system being forced off the surface by corrosion or blistering before the full life of the coating has been reached.
Using the Elcometer 134A Chloride Ion Test Kit for Abrasives in the field will accurately identify contamination and prevent costly surface-related failures. Chlorides deposited on a surface by contaminated abrasives during blasting can cause a coating to fail prematurely. Contamination can build up, particularly if the blast media is recycled several times.
The Soluble Salt Meter (SSM) Salt Contamination Meter is developed specifically to address problems with US Navy and IMO test protocols using the Bresle Patch. The SSM exactly duplicates the Bresle Patch process but with a higher accuracy and reproducibility. Measurements are automated and there are no consumables. The complete test sequence requires less than a minute. In comparison to the Bresle Patch the Soluble Salt Meter (SSM) Salt Contamination Meter : cuts sampling and inspection time low costs per … Read More
