ACS A1020 Mira Lite Portable Ultrasonic Tomograph

ACS A1020 Mira Lite Portable Ultrasonic Tomograph

The Most Portable and Handy Tomograph for Reinforced Concrete Inspection

Handheld Concrete Testing

The A1020 Mira Lite is a low-frequency ultrasonic tomography system for manual ultrasonic testing, 2D and 3D visualization and quality evaluation of concrete and reinforced concrete structures. This handheld and lightweight instrument has a sensor system that contains matrix antenna of 32 (8 blocks with 4 elements each) low-frequency broadband transverse wave dry point contact (DPC) transducers with ceramic wear resistant tips for long term, couplant free operation on rough surfaces. Perfect for estimating material integrity by detecting local inclusions, cavities, voids, delaminations, not grouted areas and cracks as well as measuring object thicknessThe A1020 Mira Lite allows quick and efficient testing of the large objects with its three-dimensional visualization and documentation of the inspection results by the provided software Introview Concrete.

 

Features

  • Real-time B-scan with FRR up to 10 Hz
  • New generation of wear proof DPC transducers
  • Outstanding near-field resolution
  • Optional Full-3D acquisition mode
  • Lightweight antenna array for longstanding onsite operation
  • German TÜV certified methodology for reinforcement and duct channels detection
  • Novel crack-depth evaluation functionality
  • Improved dust protection using durable membrane

Applications

The A1020 Mira Lite is dedicated for non-destructive testing constructions made of concrete, reinforced concrete and stone with one-sided access. Typical application fields of the system are reinforced-concrete buildings, facilities, bridges, tunnels, highways, airdromes in construction and in operation / maintenance. The instrument can be used in the mining industry to evaluate the quality of the exploitable minerals.

  • Inspection of concrete constructions up to 1200 mm thickness for the purpose of evaluation of consistency of the construction. 

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

  • 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 of the glass blowing furnace.

  • Estimation of the thickness of the concrete cover 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
