DSK-1 Mendeleevets - Corrosion rate sensor

DSK-1 - Corrosion rate sensor
DSK-1 - Corrosion rate sensor


Certified in the EAC Certified in the Maritime Register of Shipping

Application area

Corrosion rate sensor DSK-1 Mendeleevets is used for measurement of the depth and the rate of corrosion of underground steel pipelines. The sensors give the opportunity to estimate efficiency of electrochemical protection of underground metal construction and to detect the degree of corrosion danger.

The sensors are installed stationary in the ground in close proximity the underground steel construction.

Technical details

Type of the sensor is resistive. The working principle is based on measuring the resistance of steel active element and recording the changes of its thickness in time as a result of corrosion. The sensor allows to determine the depth of corrosion and the rate of corrosion of underground metal construction.

  1 – body;
2 – active element;
3 – product label
4 – cable;
5 – connector

Measuring scheme and permanent (nonvolatile) memory are built in the sensor and this construction provides precision and stability of measurements.

Depending on the construction there are two types of sensors:
DSK-1-1.5 – are intended for zones with high corrosion with corrosion rate more than 0.3 mm/year;
DSK-1-0.7 – are intended for zones with raised corrosion with corrosion rate from 0.1 to 0.3 mm/year, and for zones with moderate corrosion with corrosion rate less than 0.1 mm/year.



  • Precision and stability of measurements do not depend on the measuring device, it is provided with the sensor by means of built-in measuring scheme;
  • Built-in permanent (nonvolatile) memory for storage of data;
  • It’s not needed any special display instrument;
  • Digital communication interface can be connected to laptops, pads, telemetry systems and so on;
  • Built-in scheme of temperature compensation of measures.
