Civil Engineering Testing Equipment

There is a wide range of inspection demands within the scope of civil engineering and a list of structures that are regularly inspected includes:

  • Bridges
  • Communication masts
  • Cranes
  • Road sign gantries
  • Lighting columns
  • Playground equipment
  • Railway infrastructure
  • Fairground rides and entertainment attractions.

All are likely to undergo routine inspections for predictive maintenance to ensure any corrosion or wastage is detected as early as possible.

The Cygnus Multiple-Echo technique which is standard on all our thickness gauges will measure through coatings and display a verified reading of just the remaining metal thickness.

The Cygnus 2+ Hands Free gauge has an end-mounted LCD display making it ideal for inspections via rope access or climbing. Supplied with a neck-strap so it can be worn around the surveyor’s neck and the display viewed from above or the optional belt clip allows them to be attached to a harness. The Cygnus 2 PLUS has the added flexibility of Echo-Echo and Single-Echo modes as well as the standard Multiple-Echo.

The Cygnus 4+ General Purpose has a large LCD display, the benefit of all three measuring modes and linear data logging for recording measurements.
