One of the methods to measure the rate of corrosion occurring in the pipeline is by measuring the change in resistance of the probe, where the probe element with the same / similar material to the pipe installed in order to experience the same corrosion process as the pipe. The corrosion rate is obtained from the change in resistance caused by the decreasing thickness of the element during the period of time in the pipeline.
Feature: Flush electrical resistance probe is installed to the surface portion of the pipe and does not interfere with the pigging process, Tubular electrical resistance is designed for a wider scope in the pipeline. Tube loop electrical resistance is very responsive in measuring the rate of corrosion in the pipeline.
Function: To obtain corrosion rate data, operators do not need to pull the probe out of the pipe unlike using the coupon system, and the corrosion rate data obtained after the data is read by means of the probe instrument (DCI or KSHHU). Very effective to determine the type of corrosion that occurs in the pipes, the cause of corrosion and are often used in the selection of materials.
