Concrete Inspection Accessories
Concrete Inspection Accessories like mirrors can be used during inspection. Sometimes the substrate or coating requires closer investigation. In dark or shaded areas, further investigation may require additional light. It may be necessary to take a detailed look at a specific area where you cannot get to. In this case an inspection mirror is required. For close up investigations the inspector may require magnification of the surface for a clearer understanding.
A simple range of gauges used for the measurement of crack widths in concrete and other structures is also included.
The Elcometer 143 Crack Width Ruler is similar in size to a standard credit card, this transparent gauge is marked with a range of graded lines. This simple gauge has been designed to provide inspectors with a low cost alternative to a graduated microscope for determining the width of a crack in concrete or other building materials. Each line is a specified width.To use, position the gauge over the crack and identify which line is a similar width to the crack. Read off the width value.
The Elcometer 143 is probably the most popular method of quickly determining the crack width due to its pocket size and competitive pricing. Users of the ruler vary widely from the less sophisticated user who just wants a quick and easy indication to the more sophisticated user who wants a more accurate result.
The Elcometer 131 Inspection Mirrors are ideal for inspecting difficult to access areas – inside pipes, behind corners, underneath inspection tanks, and other inaccessible or awkward areas. Combined with the full range of test equipment from Elcometer, these high quality, robust mirrors help to provide a detailed examination of the component or project under inspection.
Many environments can have low light or dark areas and explosive gas present; ballast tanks, oil and gas tanks, etc. It is imperative, not only for safety reasons, but also to be able to inspect the coating adequately, to have sufficient light. The Elcometer 132 Safety Torch / Flash Light is explosion proof and meets the ATEX directive as category 2 equipment. It is approved to the latest EN Standards for electrical apparatus for potential explosive atmospheres. This allows for use in Group II applications zones 1 and 2, IIA and IIB gases, where T4 temperature class permits.
