Non-nuclear density meters PQI 380 and SDG 200

Non-nuclear asphalt density gauge PQI 380 and non-nuclear soil density gauge SDG 200

Transtech Systems has many years of experience in developing equipment for road construction in particular. Among the latest products are the PQI 380 (Pavement Quality Indicator) and SDG 200 (Soil Density Gauge). Major steps have been taken with these series to be able to replace the nuclear units.

The PQI 380 and SDG 200 do the same as the well-known nuclear equipment for measuring the compaction of asphalt and soil, but on the basis of non-nuclear technology. The PQI 380 and SDG 200 works on the basis of electromagnetic waves and with this technology is completely harmless to the environment and the health of the person who handles it.

This device measures accurately the density and temperature of asphalt. The PQI 380 is equipped with a touchscreen and equipped with user-friendly user interface. The position of the measurements can also be registered using the built-in GPS module.

Method:

With the PQI 380, a one-time database of the different mixtures is built up. A comparison is made with a measurement at the location where a drill core is later taken. This sets the "offset" associated with that mixture, this data is stored in the device. As soon as this mixture is selected again, the PQI is immediately ready for use.

Hightlights:

  • Non-Nuclear technology
  • Asphalt density readings in 3 seconds
  • Full color VGA display
  • LED backlight for easy visibility in light or dark situations
  • Customizable project entries
  • Customizable mix entries
  • 4 reading modes
  • Diagnostics mode
  • Download data files from the PQI via USB drive
  • Data management screen and the ability to disable datalogging
  • Rugged, lightweight aluminum shell
  • Handle extension attachment
  • Reflective vinyl graphics for higher visibility at night
  • Fast, reliable, accurate and repeatable readings in real time
  • No need for badges or licenses
  • No storage or transport concerns.

SDG 200sdg 200 home

This device accurately measures the density of soils. The SDG 200 is equipped with a touchscreen and user-friendly interface. The position of the measurements can also be registered using the built-in GPS module.

Both nuclear and SDG are indicative measuring instruments. The accuracy of both devices is almost the same. There are a number of technical properties that differ substantially: such as the layer thickness, which is adjustable with the SDG 200. This makes it more suitable for, for example, thin coatings than nuclear devices.

Hightlights:

  • Non-Nuclear technology
  • Full color VGA display
  • LED backlight for easy visibility in light or dark situations
  • Customizable project entries
  • Customizable material entries
  • Diagnostics mode
  • Download data files from the SDG 200 via USB drive
  • Data management screen and the ability to disable datalogging
  • Rugged, lightweight aluminum shell
  • Handle extension attachment
  • Reflective vinyl graphics for higher visibility at night
  • Fast, reliable, accurate and repeatable readings in real time
  • No need for badges or licenses
  • No storage or transport concerns.
