The Capo-Test is an alternative to the testing of cores, for accurate compressive strength estimates on-site, giving instant compressive strength results for:

  • Quality control of the finished structure
  • Concrete members rejected by laboratory specimen testing
  • Residual strength of existing structures
  • Fire damaged structures
  • Integrity of structures

Principle & Operation

  • An 18.4 mm hole is cored perpendicular to a plane surface outside reinforcement disturbance.
  • A recess is routed in the hole to a diameter of 25mm and at a depth of 25mm.
  • A split ring is expanded in the recess and pulled against a counter pressure, 55mm inner diameter, placed on the surface concentrically with the ring.
  • The concrete in the strut between the expanded ring and the counter pressure is being compressed; hence the pull force “F” is a direct measure of the compressive strength.
  • The test is partially destructive, as it has to be performed until the cone between the expanded ring and the inner diameter of the counter pressure is dislodged.
The Capo-Test complete set comprises a Preparation Kit LCN825 or LCN826, the
 LCN829 DSV-Kit and a pull machine kit LCN827 or LCN828.
These components must be ordered individually to form a complete system.

The LCN829 Capo-Test DSV-Kit

(Diamond planer, Suction plate and Vacuum pump), with the tools for the planing of the surface, the coring and the recess routing. The diamond planner and the diamond drill unit are easy to operate attached to the suction plate, which further controls the recess routing.

The kit comprises:

  • Diamond planer
  • Vacuum pump with hose
  • Governing brass tap
  • Suction plate
  • 2 x Blue fastening pliers
  • Small screwdriver
  • 17mmWrench
  • Plastic hose
  • Attaché case
Spare Capo-test inserts are available in packs of 10. See LCN830.
