Pundit PL-200 / PL-200PE – Ultrasonic Testing

  • The Pundit PL-200 and PL200PE continue the illustrious Pundit tradition that began in the 1970s. The first to use a new generation touchscreen display unit.
  • The Touchscreen unit can control conventional Ultrasonic Pulse Velocity Transducers as the PL-200 and the Pulse Echo Transducer as the PL200 PE.
  • The world known Pundit range offers users a reliable and accurate method for determining the sonic properties of materials.
  • The pulse velocity in a material depends on its density and its elastic properties. These in turn are related to the quality and the strength of the material.
  • Applications
  • Ultrasonic testing can be used for:
  • The homogeneity of a material
  • The presence of voids, cracks or other internal imperfections or defects
  • Changes in the concrete which may occur with time (i.e. due to the cement hydration) or damage from fire, frost or chemical attack
  • The strength or modulus of a material
  • The quality of the concrete in relation to specified standard requirements
  • Single sided thickness measurement
  • Poisson’s ratio and E modulus calculation
  • Materials
  • An essential tool for investigating a wide range of materials. Including Concrete, Ceramics and Refractories, Timber and many others/
  • Features
  • Housing specially designed to be used on-site in harsh environments
  • Screen with highest resolution and sharpest image available in the market allowing best possible analysis of the measured waveforms
  • Settings directly accessible on measuring screen
  • On board storage and review of waveforms
  • Automatic and manual triggering and user adjustable trigger threshold
  • Gate function on UPE results to focus on critical testing regions. 
  • Modular concept: Expandable with all Proceq Pulse Velocity and Pulse Echo transducers, upcoming Pundit ultrasonic products will be directly compatible.
  • Time based data logging for short term monitoring
  • Stress Waves
  • P-S-WavesUltrasonic testing is sub section of stress wave testing. The main characteristics of stress waves in a material are their frequency and the type of wave measured. The correct choice of frequency is based upon the material being tested. Coarse grained concrete responds better to a lower frequency. Fine grained mortars or rock works better with higher frequencies.
  • The two test methods offered by the Pundit use of either compression waves [P waves] or shear waves. The particle motion associated with compression waves can be described as vibration parallel to the direction of wave travel, much as a sound wave. The particle motion associated with shear waves can be described as vibration perpendicular to the direction of wave travel. 
  • Ultrasonic Pulse Echo Method
  • Pundit-PL-200pe-out-webThe Pulse Echo technology widely extends the application range of the Pundit Touchscreen Unit and offers a variety of special features.
  • Single side determination of slab thickness
  • Detection and localization of voids, pipes, cracks (parallel to surface) and honeycombing
  • Advanced echo tracking technology helps identifying the main echo
  • Control buttons and optical feedback directly on the probe increase measurement efficiency
  • Automatic estimation of the Pulse Velocity
  • Easy B-Scan measuring through centre marker and rulers directly on the probe
  • Dry-contact transducer: no couplant required, suited for measuring on rough surfaces
  • Lightweight and ergonomic handling
  • Pulse Echo Transducer
  • The Pulse Echo transducer is a shear wave transducer designed for single-handed and two-handed operation. It is particularly suited to testing where access is limited to a single side.
  • Pundit-PL-200PE-tranducer-detail-web
  • Scan Modes
  • PL-200PE-testingB-Scan
  • A cross-sectional view perpendicular to the scanning surface is provided. It facilitates the search for pipes, cracks, voids, etc.
  • State-of-the-art image processing for improved image quality.
  • Cursor placement allows a direct readout of the slab thickness and the location of hidden objects or defects.
  • In this example a B-Scan of a concrete object containing steel pipes.
  • A-Scan
  • UPE GateA-Scan allows direct analysis of the raw signal.
  • Digital filters for better echo visibility and noise suppression.
  • Automatic readout of slab thickness (Echo tracker).
  • Area Scan
  • Contour map of results over a concrete surface, either Velocity or thickness values can be mapped.
  • A gate function can focus the results in the region of most concern such as reflections from the back of a tunnel grout layer.
