Permeability Test

The permeability of concrete at the surface is a major factor in determining the durability of concrete structures. A reliable permeability test of the concrete cover is therefore crucial – not only in the laboratory but also at the building site. One factor determining the durability of concrete is the ease with which air can penetrate into concrete.

The permeability test with the Torrent permits a rapid analysis of the air permeability of the cover concrete by a non destructive method. The essential features of the permeability test method of the Torrent are a two-chamber vacuum cell and a pressure regulator which ensures an air flow at right angles to the surface into the inner chamber. The permeability test with the Torrent takes only 2 – 12 minutes.
