Continuously monitoring for corrosion and erosion

| By Mary Page Bailey and Gerald Ondrey

This company has introduced a complete corrosion and erosion monitoring portfolio with digital capabilities and full integration with the Plantweb digital ecosystem through the new Rosemount 4390 series of corrosion and erosion wireless transmitters and Plantweb Insight Non-Intrusive Corrosion application. The monitoring portfolio turns existing offline corrosion probes into online tools to monitor for the risk of corrosion or erosion. Combining with non-intrusive Rosemount Wireless Permasense sensors monitoring metal thickness, which is a major factor in determining the health of piping and other fixed equipment, enables users to monitor both the risk of corrosion or erosion, and the impact of that risk on the health of the plant or asset. When instrumented with inline probes, changes in corrosion risk can be detected in minutes, enabling sites to take corrective actions before damage occurs. — Emerson, Shakopee, Minn.
