Mecmesin’s Shotcrete Pentrometer is a complete portable system for testing the compressive strength of the initial curing stage of young sprayed concrete to BS EN 14488-2 (Method A).

It provides accurate readings of the forces required to penetrate sprayed (shotcrete) or poured concrete. These resistive force readings are then used to convert to a compressive strength value. This accuracy—beyond the requirements of the standard—and portability make it ideal for on-site testing.
