Rapid Chloride Permeability Test

    Rapid Chloride Permeability Test


    Rapid Chloride Permeability Test Equipment (RCPT) is used to evaluate the resistance of a concrete sample to the penetration of chloride ions. Test is performed by placing a 100 mm diameter concrete cylinder into the sample cells that contain 3.0 % salt solution and 0.3 N sodium hydroxide solution. A voltage of 60 V DC is maintained across the ends of the sample throughout the test and the charge that passes through the sample is recorded. Based on the charge, a qualitative rating can be made of concrete's permeability.


    ASTM C 1202; ASTM C 1760

    Rapid Chloride Permeability Test Equipment contains four standard cells, four PT-100 sensors for temperature monitoring during the test and a 190x64 resolution LCD screen. Utest provides two types of sample cells for RCPT. UTC-1210 is the standard cell for performing chloride resistance test. UTC-1220 has additional cooling fins and can be used when the temperature should be kept constant.

    Utest Rapid Chloride Permeability Testing Equipment is supplied with Usoft-1200, Utest Software for RCPT tests. Using Usoft-1200 temperature and current measurements on each of the four cells can be displayed and final charge passed (Q) can be reported.
