Deskripsi Proceq Original Schmidt Type N – Concrete Hammer Test
Proceq Schmidt Hammer, Type N
DIFFERENCE Type N & L:
* Type N: Standard impact energy. Minimum thickness of test object: 100 mm (3.9”’) and should be firmly fixed in the structure
* Type L: Low impact energy. Suitable for brittle objects or structures less than 100 mm (3.9”’) thick
The original Schmidt hammer, type N, is designed for non-destructive testing of concrete items 4″ (100mm) or more in thickness, or concrete with a maximum particle size less than or equal to 1.25″ (32mm). It is designed for testing concrete within a compressive strength range of 1,450 to 10,152 psi (10 to 70 N/mm2) and impact energy of the test is 1.6 ft-lbs (2.207 Nm). The (type N) Schmidt hammer is pressed against the concrete structure and the rebound values are displayed on a mechanical sliding scale. These values can then be correlated to compressive strength by using the conversion table chart affixed to the hammer. The original Schmidt hammer is known for its durability and accuracy.
