“This show represents a significant opportunity for us to reach customers and make the public aware of our products that are on the periphery of our market,” says Michael W. Hoag, President of James Instruments Inc.

James Instruments Inc. manufacturer of the world's most advanced Non Destructive Test Equipment for construction materials exhibited at the World of Concrete January 18th to the 21st, 2011. This is the twenty sixth year the company has exhibited at the World of Concrete. The company has found the show an exciting place to meet with customers, present the latest technology and learn about the latest developments in the industry.

This show represents a significant chance for our customers to try the equipment and to provide us with feed back on what they are looking for. On display were;

Windsor Probe™ Test System: A Non Destructive Test System for Concrete Compressive Strength in the field. Safe, Quick, and Simple to use it is the most effective method of Concrete Compressive Strength Testing on Site. The System performs equally well on standard and high performance concrete. Conforms to ASTM C-805 and other International Standards.

Rebound Hammers provide the most economical, quick and easy concrete compressive strength test in the field. It will also provide an indices of hardness and compressive strength for other construction materials. Conforms to ASTM C-805 and other International Standards.

R-Meter™ MK III: Built for the professional this is the most Advanced System for finding the location, depth, and size of reinforcement bar, post tension cables, copper and conduit w/ Cover mapping feature, Storage, and upload to PC!

Mini R-Meter™: Ruggedized for tough field use, this economical hand held unit is used for finding the location, estimates either depth, or size of reinforced rebar, post tension cables, copper and conduit!

V-Meter™ MK III: The most advanced System for Ultrasonic Pulse Velocity in Concrete, Wood, Ceramic and other Coarse grained and Construction Materials. This test method rapidly and easily allows you to locate cracks, voids, rot and other areas of inhomgenity in the material under test. Complete System includes transducers, instrumentation unit, cables and software for PC, Conforms to ASTM C - 597 and other standards.

Trident™: A Microwave Moisture Meter Used for the Rapid Determination of Moisture Content in Sand and Other Fine or Coarse Aggregates. It is fast and easy to use as well as completely portable.

Aquaprobe™: Meter for the Rapid Determination of Moisture Content in Different Types of Soil.

Cementometer™: A Microwave Meter Used for The Determination of Water/Cement Content Ratio in Fresh Concrete. (Type R for Regular Water Cement Ranges. Type L for Low Water Cement Ranges.)

James Instruments Inc. had a staff of two to great customers and meet with the industry. Michael W. Hoag, President, and Nelson Flores Inside Sales were on hand to answer customers questions. “This show represents a significant opportunity for us to reach customers and make the public aware of our products that are on the periphery of our market,” says Michael W. Hoag, President of James Instruments Inc. He continues, “We at James Instruments feel it is important to speak directly with the people in our industry to help understand and solve their problems.”

International registrations accounted for a record 24% of the attendees’ total, representing more than 150 countries.

James Instruments specalises in Non-Destructive testing equipment for concrete and other construction materials. Central to the improvement of the concrete infrastructure are tools that evaluate the condition of existing construction. Destructive and non-destructive testing (NDT) techniques are applied. Destructive tests can provide direct information, but are relatively expensive, time-consuming and cause damage to the structure. Destructive test results often cannot be evaluated using statistical approaches because the number of locations in the structure that can be tested without damage to the structure is limited. On the other hand, NDT techniques are relatively inexpensive to apply, and they can detect, localize, and characterize flaws and damage in concrete structures without leaving any undesirable discontinuities or causing damage to concrete members.

James Instruments Inc. is the leading manufacturer of non-destructive test equipment for construction materials, specifically concrete, ceramic, wood and other coarse grained materials. We supply the instruments that measure and analyze strength, structure, corrosion and moisture in concrete and other construction materials. And more. James Instruments -- rugged, quality equipment for field use -- backed by factory service and an ongoing program of research and development.
