New Sensors and Systems for Wind Power

Throughout the recent years MetriCorr has developed and delivered completely automated corrosion monitoring systems to Ørsted Wind Power – the world’s leading innovator and operator of offshore wind power generation. The deliveries for 21 foundations include more than 600 sensors and more than 170 datalogging units. The sensors have comprised general corrosion sensors, pitting indicator sensors, coating degradation sensors as well as reference electrodes conductivity sensors and depth sensors. The units all report directly to Ørsted’s data center.

MetriCorr exhibit at NCC 2018

We are ready for the Nordic Corrosion Congress which starts today at DTU in Lyngby, Denmark.
With so many of us calling DTU home during our studies, we are looking forward to seeing some familiar faces as well as meet the new movers and shakers in the industry.
If you are not already registered for the congress, you can still visit us at the exhibition.

NACE 2018: A fantastic receipt of our new slimline series

We would like to take this opportunity to thank all of our customers and colleagues who stopped by to say hi and see our new Slimline ICL and VL100 at the 2018 NACE Expo in Phoenix in April.
We had a wonderful conference made more successful by the well-received papers presented by Mr Andreas Junker Olesen and Mr Ernesto Santana Diaz.
We look forward to seeing you all in Nashville in 2019!

Investigation of stone-hard-soil formation from AC corrosion of cathodically protected pipeline

A stone-hard-soil structure was observed on a metallic pipeline under cathodic protection and subject to alternating current corrosion at a coating defect. Using X-ray diffraction, energy dispersive X-ray spectroscopy, ion-chromatography and inductively coupled plasma optical emission spectroscopy, the stone-hard-soil was characterized as being enriched in NaCl. Local alkalization following the cathode reactions caused precipitation of calcite, believed to be partly responsible for the stability of the structure. Very close to the corrosion site at the epicenter, calcite and quartz was depleted, possibly owing to an extremely high pH. Formation of cementlike minerals and corrosion products is observed.

New Slimline Series of Remote Monitoring Devices

MetriCorr is proud to announce our new series of remote monitoring devices. The product line comprises the VL-100; a simple voltage logging device for DC and AC potentials, the VL-300; which is a three-channel voltage logger one of which being a microvolt channel, as well as an ICL-02 module with the well-known features of the original ICL-02.

With the new line of products MetriCorr addresses all arts of pipeline remote monitoring, and pre-configured sensors ensure a streamlined communication and data-dump to our WebService.

MetriCorr to exhibit at NACE 2018

We are pleased to announce that MetriCorr will be exhibiting at the 2018 NACE Corrosion Conference in Phoenix, Arizona in April 2018.
We look forward to show casing our corrosion monitoring solution.

Visit us at our stand opposite the CP training field, Booth 1811 at the Phoenix Convention Centre 15 – 19 April 2018.
In keeping with MetriCorr’s long history of Field Proven, Research Based Technology, in addition to our booth, we will be presenting two technical papers:
• Laboratory investigation of the effect of the chemical environment on AC corrosion – Andreas Junker-Holst
• A Critical Review of Parameters for Meaningful AC Corrosion Modelling – Ernesto Santana Diaz
