A new instrumental approach for measurement of corroded surface area has been developed by AD Systems 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 CE® application software. The test can now be run unattended // which reduces labor costs.

The CT10 test is simple and straight forward. 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.

All details related to each test are recorded and stored into a local database. Complete test report including sample ID, operator name, date/time, standard, Procedure, Test duration, d egree of severity of rusting and picture of the rod. The result can be printed on optional printer. Multi-criteria search function facilitates retrieval of any test report in the database. Versatile communication features allow complete test report storage on a USB memory stick and/or transfer it to a LIMS when the CT 10 is connected to a LAN.
