ACS A1040 Mira Ultrasonic Imaging System

ACS A1040 Mira Ultrasonic Imaging System

Portable, High-End Ultrasonic Tomograph for Reinforced Concrete Testing

Quality, Couplant Free Testing

The A1040 Mira is a handheld ultrasonic tomograph for imaging of the internal structure of concrete at one-sided access. Contains a matrix antenna array from 48 (12 blocks, each containing 4 elements) law-frequency broad banded transducers of shear waves with dry-point-contact and ceramic wear resistant tips for working on rough surfaces. Each transducer is equipped with an independent spring suspension for inspection on uneven surfaces. The A1040's interface allows working with laser beams which are projected on a surface of the testing object, so the operator can correctly maintain a shift step of the antenna array during a complete technical diagnostics of the testing object. Repositionable handles, bright TFT display and a reference scale on the lower part of the unit provides convenient operation and analysis of results. Includes visualization and analysis software Introview.

Applications

  • Inspection of concrete constructions up to 2500 mm and reinforced concrete up to 800 mm in thickness for the purpose of evaluating consistency of the construction

  • Search for foreign inclusions, cavities, voids, delaminations, leaks of filling and cracks in the concrete objects, reinforced concrete objects and natural stone

  • Inspection of constructions made of marble and granite up to 2000 mm in thickness

  • Search for plastic and metal pipes of a diameter more than 10 mm in reinforced concrete

  • Inspection of the internal structure of carbon rods with a diameter of more than 900 mm

  • Evaluation of condition of the channels with stressed reinforcement in reinforced concrete bridges

  • Inspection of understructures, columns, overhead covers in cast-in-place constructions to detect voids and leaks of filling

  • Search for voids and cavities back of liner plates of underground and railway tunnels

  • Inspection of refractory blocks in glass blowing furnaces

  • Estimation of the thickness of concrete covers and depth of coverage reinforcement

  • Thickness measurement of the testing object at one-sided access

  • Detailed registration of the results obtained

 

Introview Concrete Software

Introview Concrete software is a tool for visualization and analysis of two and three-dimensional datasets. Apart from analysis of concrete measurement data the software can be applied in other applications such as non-destructive metal testing, medical imaging, homeland security, seismology and many others. Service engineers, researchers and scholars can benefit from the usage of this software tool. Among others, Introview offers you the following built-in features:

  • 3D volume view
  • Cut planes
  • Texture mapping
  • Ray casting
  • Maximum intensity projection
  • Isosurface
  • BDC projections
  • Amplification and threshold
