SOLUTIONS FOR CORROSION
Civil structures such as bridges and dams are extremely large construction efforts costing millions to billions of dollars and spanning several years. In the United States alone re-pairs for corrosion damage to federal bridges are estimated at $50 billion annually. These structures are vital to commerce and the standard of living of millions of people in the United States and billions of people worldwide. Premature or unexpected failures of these structures are often catastrophic in terms of time, money and lives.
We have developed a fully embeddable corrosion solution monitoring instruments incorporating all required electrodes and signal processing electronics.
Corrosion Solutions for the Future
The ECi-2 is a monitor for steel-reinforced concrete structures, using non-destructive evaluation (NDE) to provide early warning of conditions that can lead to cracking, spalling, delamination, and other deterioration. The ECi-2 is a non-destructive evaluation (NDE) device. It gathers and transmits data on corrosive conditions within steel-reinforced concrete – without requiring inspectors to cut physical samples or interrupt use of a structure. This reduces the costs of inspection and repair.
