thincorrThinCorr: think local, be versatile

In many metal corruption analysis scenarios, extracting small samples of material from large components and bringing to the laboratory is simply impossible. In such situations measurements on site become the only option. Since the advent of very precise miniaturized electrochemical cells, Amel has developed his own on-site system, called ThinCorr, designed to get the same performance of a complete laboratory set, wherever you need.

A unique bundle for a double convenience

ThinCorr includes a miniaturized cell – EC Minicell – designed to perform localized electrochemical investigations on surface areas of the order of mm2. thincorrThe test component is the 2556 Amel Portable Potentiostat, designed on purpose to pair the EC MiniCell features.

Nice ’n easy to work with

The miniaturized cell has been designed in a way that the electrolyte can flow in proximity of the working electrode, avoiding concentration gradients and the corresponding polarizations. Within the body of the EC Minicell there are channels that allow the flow of the electrolyte and that contain a counter electrode and a reference electrode. At the nozzle of the cell there is a gasket that delimits the area of the working electrode, when the EC Minicell is pressed against a metallic surface. ThinCorr system is driven by a proprietary software via personal laptop.

Performance you’ll simply adore

  • EC Minicell is a miniaturized, resistant, handy, and complete electrochemical cell suitable for localized electrochemical measurements.
  • Measurements are carried out with the electrolytic solution flowing from the reservoir to the WE and then back to the reservoir in a closed circuit loop. Fluid flow favors the removal of reaction products from the WE region.
  • There are not specific constraints on the types of electrochemical tests that can be performed, e.g. cyclic voltammetry, coulometry, and localized electrodeposition, thanks to the 2556 dedicated Potentiostat.
  • ThinCorr is a handy, trustable and versatile instrument for a variety of electrochemical measurements.

Polarisation Cell for Corrosion Testing

Oct 17, 2011 

Particularly suited for testing on metallic fragments on cylinders molten in resin.

596Model 595 fulfills recommendations of A.S.T.M. designation G5-69(964).

The cell consists of a glass container with 6 ground-glass joints. The specimen is mounted on a special sample-holder through the central neck.

Two large anodic compartments, terminated by frited-glass disk, accept platinum counterelectrodes, keeping separated the related reaction or gas development.

A Luggin capillary, coupling the reference electrode, can be set at the shortest distance from specimen, thus minimizing iR drop. Flat bottom allows stirring while electrolyte circulation can be made through inlet-outlet.

2049 Potentiostat GalvanostatOld Price, brand new features

This instrument is well suited for routine purposes and long-term applications such as corrosion measurements under stress or whenever it is required to perform continuous measurements without immobilizing higher-cost instrumentation. The Model 2049 is complete with a 4’/2-digit LCD display for clear and accurate reading of both current and potentials. These signals are also permanently available as low-impedance replicas at the front-panel in order to simplify the connection of external devices. The low-noise characteristics make the Model 2049 well suited for low-current applications, while the extreme simplicity of the commands together with the fully-protected circuitry make this potentiostat the ideal choice for industrial and classroom applications.
