Rohrback Cosasco launches new Chemical Injection Data Logger for Accurate Chemical Flow Monitoring
Costly chemical injection problems can be reduced with Rohrback Cosasco Systems new RDC-CI Chemical Injection Data Logger for monitoring corrosion inhibitor injection rates. The RDC-CI Data Logger accurately monitors chemical flow through injection quills and nozzles using a positive displacement flow meter to calculate chemical delivery rates. Available for use with a wide variety of chemicals and in operating temperatures ranging from -40 °F to 158 °F (-40 °C to 70 °C), the Data Logger gathers data in 0.0005-gallon increments, yielding very accurate flow rates over user-selectable time periods ranging from two minutes to one day. The Data Logger accepts a wide range of chemical flow rates — from 0.5 to 100 gallons per day. A long, six-month battery life enhances the Chemical Injection Data Logger’s accuracy and reliability.
Rohrback Cosasco Systems launches new Cosasco Bio-Probes for monitoring microbiologically influenced corrosion (MIC)
Rohrback Cosasco Systems now offers both retractable and retrievable bio-probes for monitoring microbiologically influenced corrosion (MIC). Corrosion monitoring Bio-probes offer plant operators a simple and effective tool for collecting samples for subsequent microbiological analyses in systems susceptible to MIC. Microorganisms, including bacteria, algae, and fungi can accelerate the corrosion process up to 1000 times. MIC is often undetected in many industrial systems but its importance should not be underestimated or ignored. Microbiologically induced corrosion can result in the improper use of corrosion inhibitors and coatings, resulting in significant waste and increased operating costs.

Rohrback Cosasco Systems is pleased to introduce the Quicksand ™ Erosion Detection System
Quicksand system provides an unparalleled combination of high sensitivity, rapid response and extended probe life which makes it ideally suited for sand erosion. Acoustic methods can be useful for sand detection, where the flow can be reduced to prevent the sand production, and where background noise is not a problem. However, where sand production cannot be eliminated, these methods are not effective since they cannot measure the resultant erosion or erosion/corrosion. This is where the new RCS High Sensitivity Quicksand™ probes and transmitters provide the answer.
