Concrete Corrosion Monitoring
Reinforced Concrete Corrosion Monitoring - Real-time Condition Monitoring for Major Assets
Our Concerto system provides a variety of options for monitoring the rate of corrosion in reinforced concrete structures - including:
- Underground rail tunnels
- Nuclear waste storage facilities
- Reinforced concrete piers
- Column heads
- Bridge decks
Concerto accommodates the challenges of the concrete environment without compromising on sensitivity, resolution or robustness.
The measurement systems are matched to a range of measurement probes for permanent burial in concrete; probes that can be installed prior to concrete placement or retrofitted to existing structures.
Successful field corrosion measurements in reinforced concrete structures pose a number of challenges to the system designer. The electrochemistry of the environment can change dramatically over the life of the structure. Corrosion and condition monitoring systems are often installed as a verification of construction quality, as an indicator of system health and as an early warning onset of corrosion for future cathodic protection application. Measurement probes are inaccessible once installed yet have to respond to change when needed; instrumentation may have to be located remote from the probe yet maintain sensitivity and noise rejection.
Concerto instrumentation, coupled with our in-house designed and manufactured probes, provides a complete integrated condition monitoring system tailored to your particular needs.
