HOUSTON – CorDEX Instruments will be launching its next generation corrosion monitoring device, which streamlines readings gathered in the field and enables users to monitor integrity levels at specific points on an asset or pipeline, at the Offshore Technology Conference.
The latest UT5000 Intrinsically Safe Thickness Gauge can be used for non-destructive testing to establish the extent of corrosion, and can record multiple readings at specific locations. Nine multi-point readings can now be saved against each Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) tag on the asset or pipeline which greatly reduces time spent in the field and increases the effectiveness and efficiency of corrosion monitoring.
To effectively manage and assess the information gathered by the UT5000, CorDEX offers CorDEX CONNECT – a software program that can be downloaded to any PC. The software uses RFID to tag every thickness measurement with a specific location, date and time, enabling trend analysis of the asset or pipeline. Engineers can use the data to easily identify trouble spots and create predictive maintenance programs.
