Continuous corrosion monitoring enhances operational decisions

Operators with permanently-installed continuous corrosion monitoring systems have better understanding of the corrosion and erosion rates occurring within their facility.

Clarke, K., Permasense

A major problem for the hydrocarbon processing industry (HPI) is the effective monitoring of asset integrity while minimizing the exposure of personnel to difficult and potentially hazardous working environments. The application of permanently installed ultrasonic wall-thickness monitoring equipment and wirelessly transmitted data can provide continuous information on the rate of metal loss, even in the most severe environments and at extreme temperatures. Asset and integrity managers are utilizing these systems as a critical component of safety, integrity and risk management programs to monitor the potential loss of containment due to corrosion and erosion. The data is also increasingly be
