Pile Echo Tester (Piletest PET)

The Pile Echo Tester (PET) uses the Pulse-Echo method (PEM) for quick Pile Integrity Testing of a large number of piles. The top of the pile is struck with a lightweight handheld hammer. The reflected wave is then captured and analysed by the PET’s digital accelerometer. This will provide information regarding the length and shape of the pile (Overview of this test method). The PET is fully compliant to ASTM D5882-16  and AFNOR P160-2.4 as well as additional standards. PET hardware connects to any portable PCs. The Bluetooth version also connects to any Android device (phone, tablet). The PET package includes all software versions: for PC and for Android. All versions are included and operate in full compatibility.
