How does digital monitoring of corrosion protection work?

Digital monitoring of corrosion protection is used to control the corrosion process on different types of materials and structures, such as buildings, bridges, pipelines and ship hulls. The purpose of this type of monitoring is to prevent or reduce corrosion damage and extend the life of the protected objects.

1. Installation of corrosion protection:

The process begins with the installation of the corrosion protection system on the structure or surface to be protected.

2. Placement of sensors:

Sensors are strategically placed on the protected surfaces to measure and monitor various parameters that affect the corrosion process. 

3. Data collection:

The sensors collect data on the monitored parameters. 

4. Data visualization and analysis:

The collected data is usually processed and presented in real time through a user interface. This enables operators and technicians to monitor the corrosion conditions and identify any anomalies or potential problems.

5. Alarms and warnings:

If the system detects any worrying corrosion activity or deviation from the predefined thresholds, alarms or warnings are generated. This makes it possible to act quickly and take measures to prevent or reduce any damage.

6. Maintenance and inspection:

Digital monitoring also facilitates the planning of maintenance and inspection activities. By analyzing the collected data, you can identify areas that require special attention and take timely action to avoid major corrosion damage.


The Corrosion Group offers a comprehensive remote monitoring system for cathodic protection.

This enables effective management of corrosion and ensures a safe environment.

With advanced technology, real-time updates and continuous data collection, operators can optimize operations and minimize corrosion-related risks.

Key features of the system include touch screen, measurement control, remote access and calibration cell. These, along with the benefits of advanced corrosion control such as real-time data, safety, sustainability and cost-effectiveness, make it a valuable solution for infrastructures that need long-term protection against corrosion.
