  • Estimation of In-Situ strength of concrete as well as precast concrete products.
  • Confirming the uniformity as well as quality of concrete to enable timely concretive actions before commencing serviceability of concrete. Thus versatile equipment for quality control & assurance.
  • Estimation of depth of crack or investigation of internal defects of concrete.
  • Estimation of defective layer of concrete subgrades.
  • Diagnosis of deterioration impact, attack of chemicals, alkali-aggregate reaction, etc.
  • Estimation of damages due to fire, thermal shocks, and mechanical shocks.
  • Estimation of endurance under freezing and thawing on concrete.

Why use CUTE 103?

Main-4 For the Professional user, the instrument provides easy to use Quick key interface to test and record UPV test readings at site in a short time. It is small in size, lightweight & comes in a rugged cast aluminum enclosure suited for rough handling at site. The Transducers are made smaller and lighter in weight to provide ease of handling. The in-built Li-ion battery gives battery backup time exceeding 6 Hours in continuous operation, which can be more than doubled during actual use as the instrument is operated only while recording readings. Thus CUTE 103 is a very handy test instrument for Professional Concrete NDT applications.
