Original Schmidt

The Proceq rebound hammer is a device to measure the elastic properties or strength of concrete or rock. Each rebound hammer is built for a different purpose in order to meet the specific needs of the customer.

Proceq invented the world’s first and now most widely used equipment for analyzing concrete strength properties, the Original Schmidt. This rebound hammer is available in models with different impact energies, each designed for a specific test application.

The Schmidt Hammer Digi-Schmidt was developed for the non destructive measurement of the concrete compressive strength and controlling the uniform concrete quality.

Besides showing the basic settings on the included display unit, the Schmidt Hammer offers the transmission of the measured data to a standard printer or to a PC. This supersedes the time consuming business of note taking allowing the user to focus on the essential. The window based software ProVista allows downloading, presenting and editing of the measured values in a fast and easy way.

The Schmidt Hammer is equipped with a sensor which measures the rebound value of a test impact to high resolution and repeatability. With the Schmidt Hammer, various parameters such as impact direction, form factor and time factors such as carbonation depth can easily be set.

Measuring range for type ND: 10 - 70 MPa , and for type LD 18 - 70 MPa.

Silver Schmidt

The SilverSchmidt ST/PC is the first integrated concrete test hammer featuring true rebound value and unmatched repeatability.

Two factors contribute to the improved performance of this concrete test hammer over its predecessors:

  • Velocity based detection of the rebound quotient
  • The lightweight hybrid design of the impact plunger is made from aerospace alloy, matched to the elastic properties of the concrete and equipped with a hardness steel cap

Independent validation testing by BAM (Federal Institute for Materials Research and Testing, Germany) has shown the SilverSchmidt ST/PC to have less dispersion than the classical concrete test hammer over the entire range.

The unique design and high quality construction of the concrete test hammer SilverSchmidt ST/PC makes rebound hammer testing quicker and more accurate than ever before.
