Corrosion Tester


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.
