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.

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
