A new sensor for the SIT-series is now available: the Profound mounted accelerometer has been custom-designed for high performance integrity testing of installed foundation piles.
Especially for large diameter bored piles this sensor enables optimal circumstances to perform the measurement.
The SIT-mounted sensor is an alternative to the hand-held sensor whereby the sensor is fixed on the pile head using a separate mounting plate. The stiff connection between the mounted sensor and pile head ensures optimal high-quality measurement results, as the mounted sensor registers exceptionally well the response to the hammer blow. Thus providing users with accurate information about the pile shaft and possible defects.
The mounted accelerometer is ideal to be used in combination with the Wave Hammer range for large diameter piles.
Tests are in full accordance with the standards and codes ASTM D5882-16, EA-Pfähle, AFNOR NF P94-160-2/4, CUR-Aanbeveling 109:2013.

Sonic Integrity Testing (SIT) is a widely used measurement method to check the integrity of concrete foundation piles. This Low Strain Impact Test is a quick non-destructive method to reduce the risk upon failure of cast-in-situ or prefab piles. More information here.
