Junttan offers the Pile Echo Testing (PET) also known as pile integrity testing now both on-site and remotely.
Junttan uses the Pile Echo Tester (PileTest), which allows Junttan to determine the integrity of the pile with unseen flexibility and availability.
The integrity measurement is based on the low strain method, where the top end of the pile is hit with a handheld hammer and the impact wave reflection is measured with an accelerometer at the top of the pile.
It’s recommended especially with longer piles, that the integrity measurements are conducted as soon as possible after installation. By doing so the shaft resistance that may develop on the pile does not yet dampen the shock wave strongly and the shock wave travels more reliably to the pile toe.
