Condensation water

Condensation water is formed from, for example moisture in air, at cold spots or thermal bridges in a structure. The condensate is a good starting point to evaluate risk of structural corrosion as salts and polar organic comnpounds can become concentrated in the condensate. The presence of these compounds in condensate can also provide information about other parts of a process, such as degradation of stored raw materials. Analysis of condensate can be performed on small amounts of sample (250 µL) and provide information about both current and potential future problems, as well as how to mitigate these problems.
