CITec Concrete Improvement Technologies GmbH
Your partner for the performance-based diagnosis and the non-destructive rehabilitation of corrosion damage on reinforced concrete and pre-stressed structures
Our focus is on the reduction of effort and the enhancement of durability in the maintenance and repair of reinforced concrete structures – e.g. bridges, tunnels, car parks and industrial facilities. Our services are the performance based diagnosis and the repair design (and partly rehabilitation measures) on corrosion affected reinforced structures. We use preferably non-destructive electrochemical methods and combine them with conventional methods. Please read more on our website (or just call or email) about the advantages and background of our approach.
Electrochemical chloride extraction (ECE)
Publications and news
In this conference we had a presentation about the Nutzung erweiterter elektrochemischer Meßmethoden zum Erfolgsnachweis beim elektrochemischen Chloridentzug (Use of enhanced electrochemical measurements for the performance verification after ECE – update from the 2019 presentation). We will send you the manuscript on request (in German).
We were participating at this conference with 2 presentations: Insights from corrosion current measurements on corrosion mechanisms in reinforced concrete and on the evaluation of other corrosion data und Instant performance verification after electrochemical chloride extraction by enhanced corrosion testing. You can receive both manuscripts on request.
The 2018 edition of the „Taschenbuch Tunnelbau“ (ISBN 978-3-433-03217-6) contains a report about the large rehabilitation works and their design in the tunnels Eching and Etterschlag (along highway A96, close to Munich), where CITec contributed by corrosion diagnosis, electrochemical chloride extraction and cathodic protection.
In issue 3/2009 of the „Beton- und Stahlbetonbau“ magazine we had a publication „Zerstörungsfreier elektrochemischer Chloridentzug an der Donaubrücke Pfaffenstein: Langzeiterfahrungen über eine bauwerksschonende und verkehrserhaltende Technologie“ (Non-destructive electrochemical chloride extraction in the Pfaffenstein bridge across the Danube: long-term experiences about a sensitive and beneficial technology). We will send you the special edition of the […]
