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 10ºC temperature rise. The ability to rack temperature and corrosion rate simultaneously is a powerful tool in the corrosion management of such plants. The patented CORRATER® CORROTEMP® measurement probe series, allows corrosion rate and temperature information to be collected simply—at the corrosion monitoring location where it is important. By using a CORROTEMP® 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 standard 6-pin adaptors of the standard CORRATER® 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. All standard two electrode CORRATER® Probes are available with the CORROTEMP® Dual Sensor option.
