Concrete Permeability Tester - Poroscope Plus from NDT James Instruments

The Poroscope Plus from NDT James Instruments is suited to the field test for air and water permeability of concrete using the Figg technique.


  • Service life prediction
  • Coating verification testing
  • Determine susceptibility to chloride and carbonation penetration.

Features & Benefits

  • Both air and water permeability are measured by the same instrument.
  • Permeability both at the concrete surface as well as within the concrete mass can be determined.
  • Porosity in sealants and surface mortars can be checked.
  • The test is non-destructive (only a small plugged hole required) and can be completely carried out on site.
  • Each test can be completed in only a few minutes and gives reliable reproducible results.
  • The test enables meaningful concrete durability predictions to be made.
