Advantages of Ultrasonic Measurements

  • Precise display of the setting process
  • Immediately visible results at different formulations
  • Exact reproducibility of measurement results
  • Identification of deviations at an early stage
  • Strength development from initial mix to 28-day strength in a single measurement
  • Easy handling and operation makes it perfect for laboratory use
  • Easy demoulding and refi lling of the measuring moulds
  • Ideally suited for quality assurance and production
  • Up to 30% reductions in development time and cost
  • Software available in various languages

UltraTestLab© – Control and Evaluation Software

  • Intuitive operating concept with a clearly arranged user interface
  • Measurement duration: 15 minutes – 365 days
  • Measurement interval: 1 second – 60 minutes
  • During measurement simultaneously visible:
  • 1. Speed in m/s or runtime in μs
  • 2. Curve derivation (acceleration) and curvature
  • 3. Temperature inside the sample (-20 ... +125 °C)
  • 4. Shrinkage/swelling by connection of “shrinkage grooves” (optional)
  • Comparable against reference measurements
  • Reproduction of characteristic points such as initial set and fi nal set with graphic markers
  • Permissible deviations defi nable with envelopes
  • Evaluation, Excel export and printouts possible during measurement
  • Automatic logging of all measurements
  • Dynamic e-modulus calculation and display
  • Option: external temperature measurement by thermocouples (-40 ... 1820 °C)
  • Option: measurement of shrinkage/swelling by connection of ”shrinkage grooves”
