Emerson launches digital solutions for corrosion and erosion

Emerson has introduced what it says is a complete corrosion and erosion monitoring portfolio with digital capabilities and full integration with the company’s Plantweb digital ecosystem

The monitoring portfolio turns existing offline corrosion probes into online tools to monitor for the risk of corrosion or erosion in oil and gas processing. Combined with Emerson’s range of non-intrusive Rosemount Wireless Permasense sensors for monitoring metal thickness, which is a major factor in determining the health of piping and other fixed equipment, Emerson now offers a solution to monitor the risk of corrosion or erosion, as well as the impact of that risk on the health of the plant or asset.

The Plantweb Insight Non-Intrusive Corrosion application for non-intrusive corrosion monitoring complements the existing suite of Plantweb Insight applications, enabling comprehensive corrosion and erosion analysis at the end user’s desk.

When instrumented with inline probes, changes in corrosion risk can be detected in minutes, according to the company, enabling sites to take corrective actions before damage occurs. The Rosemount 4390 series of corrosion and erosion transmitters leverage WirelessHART for data retrieval and work with Emerson’s inline probes that measure the corrosive and erosive nature of the fluid and provide early risk detection for a site. The Plantweb Insight Corrosion applications allow users to access and analyse data from pipe thickness monitoring sensors and inline probes at their desk and gain real-time analytics to assess the risk and impact of corrosion or erosion on the asset or plant.

“Launching these products augments Emerson’s existing corrosion and erosion monitoring capability within our Plantweb ecosystem,” said Jake Davies, Global Product Director for Emerson’s corrosion business. “Wireless data retrieval enables cost-effective deployment at scale, class-leading data visualisation and analysis software, and connected services for our clients to fully monitor their corrosion and erosion challenges to drive maximum capability and profitability in their plant assets.”
