Rock Hammer

The GEOSTONE mechanical hammer is the only device currently present in the market in order to provide a correlation between the index value of the hammer and the compressive strength of rock material.
The use of the hammer for rock GEOSTONE as a method of investigation is one of the non-destructive tests that can be performed on site to determine the surface hardness of the material in question.
The non-destructive tests should be used to estimate, with the necessary limitations of the procedure, the compressive strength of rock material in the site. The hammer for rock GEOSTONE is a useful and easy to use tool that allows to obtain valid and reliable information on the quality of the material examined.

Further details
The GEOSTONE mechanical test hammer is the only instrument available on the market today that can provide correlation between the rebound hardness scale values measured and the compression resistance of the rock tested. Using the GEOSTONE rock rebound hammer to analyse rock is a valid non-destructive testing method that can be carried out on site to evaluate the surface hardness of the material.
Non-destructive testing methods are employed to evaluate, within the limitations of the procedure itself, the compression resistance of natural rock materials on site.
The GEOSTONE rock rebound hammer is a valuable and easy to use instrument that produces accurate and reliable data about the quality of the material tested.
