As part of quality assurance measures, we offer the following services to test the ingredients used in concrete and to check the quality of concrete both in fresh and hardened state.
Water pH Test:
This is the measure of pH level of water to ensure the suitability of water for construction purpose.
Our Civil engineer takes water sample from the site and checks the pH level by means of pH meter. The pH level of water is determined instantly and our engineer provides recommendations to customers based on the test results.
This test is normally done to assess the consistency of freshly produced concrete at construction site.
Our Civil Engineer visits the site during concreting works and performs slump test with slump cone and tamping rod. Based on the slump value, our Engineer recommends the correct amount of water to be used for the mix.
Too low or too high slump gives a warning about deficit/excess water content in the mix and our technical engineer advises suitable mix proportion, water content for the mix immediately.
Compressive Strength Test:
This is the measure of the concrete’s load bearing capacity.
Our vans are equipped with cube moulds for casting cubes from the fresh concrete being laid at the construction site.
We cast the cubes at site, cure it and transport it to our laboratory or any nearby colleges/institutions of the customer’s choice, all at our cost.
The cubes are tested in the presence of the customer for determining the compressive strength and a test Certificate is provided by the testing institution, all charges for testing borne by us.
The Test Report serves as a proof of quality of the concrete and would be a useful record for future reference purpose.
Rebound Hammer Test:
This test is an alternative method for determining the compressive strength of concrete.
This is done for completed structures for which cube testing was not done due to any reason. This non-destructive test indicates approximate compressive strength of concrete and gives a fair idea about the load bearing capacity of concrete .
The rebound hammer is easy to use and provides a large number of readings in a short time.
Rebound hammer test are done in front of the customers by our Civil Engineers at site to give an approximate idea on the compressive strength of concrete.
