Ferroscanning

DEMSO can carry out a ferroscanning service to read the makeup of any concrete structure.

We can scan for reinforcement up to a depth of 180mm, giving a readout of reinforcement size, depth of cover and if deterioration has occurred. This can be carried out from both sides of walls or slabs if they are thicker than 180mm to get a complete readout of the structural reinforcement.

This service is often used to avoid cutting re-bar when forming diamond drilled holes through structures and also if cracks have appeared in structures where moisture has attacked the reinforcement.

On completion of the scanning the information gained is downloaded and a detailed report of the findings is given.
