Emerson Launches a Complete Suite of Digital Solutions for Operators Monitoring Corrosion and Erosion
09 March 2021
Emerson 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 in oil and gas processing.
Combined with Emerson’s class-leading 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 comprehensive solution to monitor both the risk of corrosion or erosion, and the impact of that risk on the health of the plant or asset.
The new 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, enabling sites to take corrective actions before damage occurs. The Rosemount 4390 series of corrosion and erosion transmitters leverage WirelessHART® for reliable and robust 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 advanced 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. 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,” said Jake Davies, global product director for Emerson’s corrosion business.
