Concrete cover in excess of 3 in. Perth Head Office e This email address is being protected from spambots. XY-grid settings must be equal. All graphics can be exported as bmp-files into external software for the generation of reports.

Concrete surface in building interiors and desert environments lose sufficient moisture so that the concrete resistivity becomes so high that special testing techniques not covered in this test method may be required see 5.

Comments about specific points on the concrete structure can be placed directly in the potential map. Reinforced concrete structures are exposed to. Separately measured objects can be merged to a complete potential map. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use. Concrete is a porous material and the ingress of water, oxygen, and aggressive ions, such as chlorides, can cause the passive layer on reinforced steel to break down.

Once the alkaline environment is destroyed, the protective layer of oxide on the steel surface is destroyed and corrosion may start. This enable the inspector to immediately mark on the concrete surface the areas of concern and to later down load the data for printing in a report.


Concrete surfaces that are coated or treated with sealers may not provide an acceptable electrical circuit. For the latest corrosion mapping system from Proceq please take a look at the Profometer Corrosion. Lecture Slides Our Products: The basic configuration of the electrical circuit is shown in Fig.

Carbon dioxide can cause corrosion primarily by reducing the pH of the concrete. Corrosion of reinforced steel has two principal problems that affect the service life of concrete reinforced structures [2].

In service conditions, the concrete covering the steel bars gives physical and chemical protection to c76-91 reinforcement. Sydney e This email address is being protected from spambots. Based on the user defined threshold potentials that represent certain conditions of the structure, up to four characteristic potential intervals can be chosen.

It enables the identification of concrete corrosion before it becomes visible and has caused damage. Introduction Corrosion is the loss of material and occurs when metals are exposed to the environment.

The results showed that reinforced concrete containing sugar cane bagasse ash has the lowest corrosion rates in comparison to reinforced concrete without the additive.


If required, objects can be rotated and mirrored. The concrete cover provides an alkaline environment surrounding the steel, resulting in the formation of an oxide layer, called a passive film, which protects the steel from corrosion.

astmm RS interface, USB with adapter. Six AA batteries, 1. It is often necessary to use other data such as chloride contents, depth of carbonation, delamination survey findings, rate of corrosion results, and environmental exposure conditions, in addition to corrosion potential measurements, to formulate conclusions concerning corrosion activity of embedded steel and its probable effect on the service life of a structure.

This is the result of the interaction between chemical and biological agents [1].

Readings are collected at a predetermined spacings automatically and stored. Additives, such as fly ash, microsilica, rice husk ash, and cane sugar bagasse ash, have a size breakdown that allows the reduction of concrete pore size and, consequently, may reduce the corrosion process.
