CORROCHIP is an innovative system for the detection and evaluation of corrosion processes in steel embedded in concrete. It is a comprehensive solution that uses sensors embedded in the structure to perform long-term measurements, sends and processes data in the cloud and provides parameters in real time, making a very precise estimation of the corrosion rate using a non-destructive technique. .
CORROCHIP offers a technologically advanced tool to infrastructure management companies, since it allows to detect corrosion in time and facilitates decision-making based on updated and reliable information, to guarantee the integrity of structures, extend their useful life and significantly reduce maintenance costs.
Autonomous system with embedded sensors
Long-term remote monitoring
High precision non-destructive technique
Calculation of corrosion rate by advanced algorithm
Applicable to any type of reinforced concrete structure
Programmable alarm system
Installation of a sensor for monitoring corrosion in a project carried out by Acciona.
Anticipate structural integrity issues
CORROCHIP is an autonomous system that provides the information needed to assess the progress of corrosion, allowing timely action in case of deterioration, to ensure structural safety.
Long-term constant monitoring
CORROCHIP is integrated into the structure and acts as a sentinel system, making and sending measurements periodically during the useful life of the structure. The durability of the sensors and the technique used allow the system to be used for years.
Can be integrated into new and existing structures
CORROCHIP sensors are designed for use in both new construction projects and existing structures. In the latter case, the system is integrated into the structure through minimal intervention.
Connected structures: more security at lower cost
Thanks to remote monitoring and the reliability of CORROCHIP’s predictive maintenance system, infrastructure management companies achieve significant cost savings compared to other preventive or corrective maintenance strategies.
An innovative technique
The CORROCHIP system combines the potential of Witeklab’s advanced sensorics with the novel PSV-TE technique developed by a team of researchers from the Polytechnic University of Valencia. This technique is based on the Tafel extrapolation method (TE) for the detection of corrosion, improving its main drawbacks by avoiding the polarization of the reinforcements, resulting in a non-destructive method.
A 360° service
Witeklab offers its customers a specialized technical team, which at the request of the customer will conduct the study of the structure and pre-project, the installation of the Corrochip system and then will conduct periodic or reports and advice on the interpretation of the reports and on the adoption of repair and/or reinforcement measures
