CorrosionRADAR recognises that Corrosion Under Insulation (CUI) impacts many industries and has kept flexibility and adaptability at the core of its innovation and design processes, ensuring that systems can be implemented in a variety of situations. Modularity of the system allows corrosion and moisture sensors to be deployed at different stages, helping to shape a complete sensing network for new and existing structures.
The number and placement of sensors can be adjusted to meet individual facility requirements. Sensor arrangements can be:
- single line
- multiple lines
The CorrosionRADAR node has been designed to attach in a variety of ways to suit the needs of each installation. Placement options include:
- external cladding / coating systems on piping systems or vessels
- nearby support structures
- instrument panel
- other bespoke configuration
Sensors are placed longitudinally along piping systems in single, multiple or helical arrangement for optimal CUI detection. Sensors are flexible and can be placed around bends, valves and pipe supports with no loss of functionality. They are also capable of operating on all pipelines independent of pipe diameter, material and whether above or below ground.
Sensors can be installed on vessels in either a mesh form giving comprehensive area coverage or in a focused arrangement covering CUI prone areas including flanges, supports and the lower portions. Both of these schematics allow for a far more concentrated coverage area, further reducing the risk of corrosion incidents and maintenance costs.
OIL & GAS
It is critical in the oil industry to revolutionise the corrosion management process. With extremely hazardous environments - especially on offshore rigs - it is impractical and expensive to continuously monitor assets using current inspection technologies.
CorrosionRADAR's permanently installed distributed sensing system provides the ability to remotely monitor the integrity of assets, and reduce the costs and risks of loss of containment.
POWER & UTILITIES
With very high-value pipe and equipment additionally commanding near 100% uptimes, maintenance processes can make or break a Power and Utilities firm.
With CorrosionRADAR's real-time monitoring, companies can monitor corrosion development from its earliest stages. Availability of such critical data greatly enhances the development and streamlining of maintenance procedures.
CAPTIVE POWER PLANTS
Industrial manufacturing typically constitutes very expensive assets that are often prone to corrosion that is hidden from plain sight and difficult to detect.
Thanks to their inherent flexibility and modularity, CorrosionRADAR sensors can be deployed to any complex structure and hard-to-reach area, not only to detect but also keep track of progression of corrosion in real time. They are suitable for all assets from piping systems to vessels and miscellaneous equipment.
RENEWABLE & CIVIL INFRASTRUCTURE
Renewable and civil infrastructures play a crucial role in the growth and expansion of 21st century economies. With ever-growing demand, it is imperative that infrastructures are maintained at optimum conditions.
CorrosionRADAR's remote distributed monitoring systems play an important role in maintenance programs by streamlining corrosion maintenance activities, with payback periods of between months and 3 years.
