☞ Innovative Products
At FPrimeC Solutions, we are committed to bringing leading technologies and creating exciting products that help our customers succeed in their business. Our product development starts with evaluating our customers needs, what are their ongoing challenges and problems. Our researchers and engineers then start studying potential solutions; we take these solutions, and turn them into exciting products that will shape the future of testing materials and structures.
✹✹✹ i.Pile™ ✹✹✹
i.Pile™ provides an industry-standard quality built wireless device for low strain impact integrity testing of deep foundations and piles. i.Pile™ can be used to expose potentially dangerous defects such as major cracks, necking, soil inclusions or voids in slender piles. Moreover, i.Pile™ can be used for determining unknown length of piles. i.Pile™ meets the minimum requirements of ASTM D5882.
☞ Innovative Engineering Services
FPrimeC offer innovative Non-Destructive Testing (NDT) services for rapid, accurate and cost-effective evaluation of structures. Our NDT solutions are a reliable, and affordable alternative to traditional inspection procedures, that will eliminate the need for excessive cutting and coring in structures, and improving worker safety. Our NDT solutions significantly reduce the inspection timelines, and can help scan wider areas.

Non-Destructive Evaluation of Concrete Dams
FPrimeC Solutions provides innovative non-destructive testing and monitoring solutions for cost-effective and reliable inspection and testing of concrete dams.
Our NDT solutions can help customers with surface and sub-surface inspection and monitoring of concrete dams, waterways and spillways:
- Detect Major voids and discontinuities
- Detect poor quality concrete
- Map freeze-thaw damage in concrete dams
- Identify and Quantify Alkali-Silica Reactions
- Corrosion Inspection and Monitoring
FPrimeC Solutions provides advanced ultrasonic testing solutions to scan existing surface defects (crack depth), and pinpoint sub-surface defects and anomalies.
Crack Depth Measurement
- Evaluate depth and width of surface cracks
- Quantitative analysis of extent of concrete cracking and damage index
- Quality Control/Quality Assurance of Cold Joints
Detect Sub-Surface Voids and Defects
- identify location of major voids
- identify extent of Honeycombing
- identify homogeneity and consistency issues

Impact-Echo and Impulse-Response Scanning
Impulse-Response Methods (Transient Method) and Impact-Echo provide a great too for scanning concrete elements in dams, and spillways.
Impact echo is a great method to identify the depth and location of delamination in concrete slabs, and spillways.
Impulse-Response method is used to locate voids and defects underneath the concrete slabs.
Ground Penetrating Radar
FPrimeC Solutions provides expert data collection & superior ground penetrating radar solutions tailored to your unique challenge. Weather you are scanning concrete to locate rebar, or using GPR to identify and locate sub-surface defects, our NDT experts can help you.
Pinpoint Structural Detail
- locate steel rebar
- locate post-tensioning tendons
- locate conduits and pipes
- estimate the cover thickness
- estimate concrete thickness
Detect Sub-Surface Voids
- identify location of major voids
- locate cavities
