What is Wi-Corr®?
Wi-Corr is a revolutionary wireless monitoring system which uses a network of permanently-installed sensors to precisely and cost-effectively monitor the influence of erosion or corrosion on metal wall thickness.
This information allows for example, an analysis of the impact of feedstock selection and a proactive approach in planning of turnarounds and preventative action.
The Wi-Corr wireless corrosion transmitter is comprised of a battery-powered wireless communication unit (Wi-Corr WU) which forms part of a self-organising radio network when first deployed. This connects to an ultrasonic sensor (Wi-Corr US) and optionally, a temperature sensor (Wi-Corr TMP). The wireless unit is housed in a lightweight, rugged enclosure for easy handling and fitting.
Wi-Corr’s robust, proprietary adhesives, surface preparation tools and installation fixtures ensure that the sensors are reliably bonded to the pipework or other metal surfaces within minutes. This non-invasive, proven process is compatible with straight pipes, elbows, reducers or tank walls.
Autonomous battery-powered systems offer years of trouble-free operation.
Sensors working on metal surfaces in ATEX Zone 1 Explosive Atmospheres at up to 200oC .
Data reporting system up and running from first installation, using intuitive PC Software. Instantly expandable system – new sensors added to an existing Wi-Corr installation are automatically recognised.
