Corrosion management via sensors and cloud analytics

| By Chemical Engineering

Predictive Corrosion Management (PCM) is a new ATEX-certified digital inspection tool that uses embedded sensors to provide continuous ins pection data and cloud-based analytics of pipe conditions to help operators manage risk, improve uptime and minimize total cost of operation. PCM uses a combination of this company’s Rightrax installed ultrasonic sensors with the Predix cloud-based operating system and advisory services to contiGE WCnuously collect and analyze realtime performance data and monitor corrosion-related risk, so facilities can proactively make effective decisions. PCM can identify corrosion before it becomes a problem and can improve the reliability of inspection data, remove manual inconsistencies and enable users to model and predict piping failures due to corrosion and erosion. — GE Oil & Gas, London, U.K.
