Probes

CORROSOMETER® probes and instruments determine metal loss from corrosion or erosion by the electrical resistance method. This method may be used in virtually any environment except liquid metals or some conductive molten salts.

In general the CORROSOMETER® probes have sensing elements made of the metal or alloy for which corrosion data is required. The probe bodies may be of the same alloy, but thicker, or of a higher, less corrosive alloy. 

 

Fixed
Fixed
Fixed probes which are not removable under system pressure are sometimes used for reasons of economy or special process limitations. These may be mounted with a flange or NPT threaded connection. NPT connections are available with fixed or adjustable length.
Retractable
Retractable
Retractable process probes are introduced into the system through a stuffing box mounted external to a valve. A specially-designed retracting device is available for insertion or removal of probes at pressures too high to permit safe operation by hand (above 150 psi requires over 50 lb. Insertion ... [more]
Retrievable
Retrievable
Retrievable process probes are sealed into the system in a COSASCO® access fitting. A separate COSASCO® service valve and retriever is used for insertion and removal of the probes under system pressures.
Temperature
Temperature
Temperature is one of the most important controllable factors affecting corrosion rate, particularly in refineries, chemical and petrochemical process plants. A rule of thumb is that corrosion rates double for each 10 degrees C temperature ruse. The ability to track temperature and corrosion rate ... [more]
