Giatec iCOR is a novel compact and comprehensive NDT tool for detailed corrosion evaluation of reinforced concrete structures WITHOUT the need to have an electrical connection to the rebar.
iCOR benefits from a patented technology that makes it possible to estimate the corrosion rate of rebar through a non-invasive approach. This means that the need for connecting the device to the rebar (which is the case of other commercial devices) is eliminated in iCOR. This makes iCOR the most convenient corrosion rate measurement device in the field as well as offering an innovative research tool for laboratory studies.
Giatec iCOR is equipped with high precision sensors to measure the (1) corrosion rate of rebar, (2) the in- situ electrical resistivity of concrete, (3) corrosion potential of rebar as well as (4) ambient temperature and relative humidity. iCOR utilizes wireless technology to transmit data to a tablet, where data can be stored, analyzed and visualized.
Moreover, the tablet app offers a powerful post-processing tool and an easy way to share the results with other team members. iCOR can significantly save time, and cost in the condition assessment of concrete structures.
