Sound Solutions Using "Sound Technology" — Nondestructively!
Headquartered in Wheat Ridge, Colorado USA, Olson Instruments, Inc.
is an industry leader in the manufacturing of Nondestructive Testing
and Evaluation (NDT&E) Instrumentation widely used in the construction
field. We design and engineer NDT systems that are first used by our
sister company, Olson Engineering, Inc. (www.OlsonEngineering.com) before
selling field-proven instruments worldwide that provide the quality,
ruggedness and performance demanded by industry standards. The
systems are assembled in-house so you can be assured that
we have the bench strength to provide assistance for years to come.
If you call in for Tech
Support, more often than not you will be speaking
with an engineer who has actually designed and used the equipment and/or
written the software!
With Olson’s broad knowledge and experience,
we provide personalized service for all of your NDT instrumentation
needs. We do not outsource any tech support questions,
and should you require software and/or hardware support, we welcome
your questions and comments. If you don't find a product on our website
that suites your needs, let us know. Purchase the
instruments to do-it-yourself, or hire one of expert consulting engineers
to find, characterize and assess the condition
Since 1993, Olson has been an established manufacturer
of sensors and data collection systems. Our products are designed to
address the requirements of the civil engineering industry for condition
assessment. This focus has resulted in professional Nondestructive
Testing & Evaluation,
Geophysical and Laboratory test systems that are recognized world-wide
for their durability, versatility, and superior quality.
In addition to optional add-on NDT test method
systems for ultrasonic, sonic, seismic, vibration, structural health
monitoring as well as custom systems, we develop and manufacture the following
main product platforms:
- The Freedom DATA
PC, the ultimate in a professional, field ruggedized NDT and Seismic Geophysical
Testing Platform with over a dozen optional add-on test method capabilities
- The NDE 360, a versatile, robust, ruggedized handheld NDT Platform. Includes
up to a dozen optional add-on NDT and simple Seismic Geophysical test/software
system options in one platform, making it a complete suite for nondestructive
evaluation of civil structures at a very affordable price.
- The "CTG’s—Impact
Echo based Concrete Thickness/Flaw Gauges"
concrete thickness and even detect internal flaws in one easy step without
the need to drill, core or excavate. Requires no special knowledge or training
to obtain thickness measurements.
- The Freedom DAS PC for structural health monitoring, general purpose testing
and data acquisition on up to 32 channels with easily switchable, flexible
support of strain, potentiometer, accelerometer, thermocouple and other sensors
for performance monitoring and load testing.
- The Resonance Tester (RT-1) for determination of elastic moduli of concrete
specimens and rock cores. A lab instrument with just 3 simple components that
provides accurate results in less than a minute — simple to use, simple to
- The Lightweight Deflectometer (LWD-1), Olson's newest product introduced at "TRB 2014". The LWD-1 is engineered and designed at our corporate office in CO, USA and conforms to ASTM E2835-11. The durable stainless steel design instrument is used for Quality Assurance/Quality Control of earthwork projects — measure in-situ modulus to ensure soil compaction requirements are met project wide.
