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 rise. The ability to track temperature and corrosion rates simultaneously is a powerful tool in the corrosion management of such plants.
The Electrical Resistance (ER), ER Temperature patented measurement probe series allows metal loss and temperature information to be collected simply at the corrosion monitoring location where it is important. By using an ER Temperature probe, you won’t have to spend time searching for a separate temperature measurement that may not even exist for the area you want to monitor.
The temperature measurement has been incorporated into the probes using the same stand 6 pin connectors of the standard ER probe range - no external separate connectors or special adaptors with additional pins are required. The originality of the design permits both local and remote monitoring to be accomplished with accuracy.
