Wireless non-intrusive corrosion and erosion monitoring

Page last modified
October 31 2023

The Real -Time UT Wall Thickness Monitoring System is a series of installed UT wall thickness sensors, which form a monitoring array. The system measures absolute wall thickness with no averaging or extrapolation, this allows early identification of corrosion and erosion activity where areas of high-risk can be monitored continuously.

Up to 16 sensors per location allows coverage of high-risk areas.

Realtime data and alarm integration to end user

Non-Intrusive, mounted externally via banding strap

Zone 2 Rated.


Increased Safety - no need for personnel to inspect high risk areas
Reduced Cost - No requirement for manual opertions
Real-Time Erosion / Corrosion Measurement - Informs real-time decision making, risk assessment allowing increased reliability and safe operations
Remote Monitoring - save on manpower and bedspace
Requires trained SMS personnel to install and commision
