CorrosionRADAR recognises that corrosion under insulation severely impacts a variety of industries and have kept flexibility and adaptability at the core of its innovation and design process. This ensures that the CorrosionRADAR's systems can be implemented in a variety of situations. The modularity of the sensing system allows the corrosion and moisture sensors to be deployed at different stages and help to shape a complete sensing network for new and existing structures.
The number and placement of the sensors can be adjusted to meet the individual facility requirements. Sensor arrangements can be:
- Single line
- Multiple lines
The CorrosionRADAR system has been designed to attach in a variety of methods to suit each installation's individual need, 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 corrosion under insulation 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/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 by 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 & Utilities firm.
With CorrosionRADAR's real-time monitoring, one can monitor corrosion development from its earliest stages. Availability of such critical data greatly enhances developing and streamlining 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 the inherent flexibility and modularity, CorrosionRADAR's sensors can be deployed to any complex structure and hard-to-reach areas and provide an ability to not only detect but also keep track of the progression of corrosion on all assets from piping systems to vessels and miscellaneous equipment; in real time.
RENEWABLE & CIVIL INFRASTRUCTURE
Renewable & Civil infrastructures play a crucial role in the growth and expansion of the 21st centuries economies. With ever-growing demand, it is imperative to assure that the infrastructures are maintained at optimum conditions.
CorrosionRADAR's remote distributed monitoring systems can play an important role in maintenance programs by streamlining corrosion maintenance activities, with payback periods of between months and 3 years.
