CT10 Corrosion Tester

AD systems product

A new instrumental approach for measurement of corroded surface area has been developed by ADSystems in which the exact percentage of corroded area is accurately determined by an automatic instrument reducing test subjectivity.

The innovative CT10 instrument images the whole surface of the specimen. Operation is based on a homogeneous lighting source, CCD camera, specimen rotation system, and specially designed Windows application software. The test can now be run unattended, which reduces labor costs.

The CT10 test is simple and straightforward. The specimen is prepared according to the NACE TM0172 test procedure and is placed in the test chamber of the CT10. The operator enters sample information, using an intuitive graphical interface with touch screen panel, and starts a specimen scan. Specific light is emitted onto the suface of the specimen. The specimen is rotated and several images are taken. The software builds a flat image of the specimen suface, calculates the percentage of the corroded area and then translates it into a NACE rating. A detailed test report is ready in less than 5 minutes.
