Measurement System maximizes corrosion inhibitor efficiency.

Press Release Summary:

Configured to meet specific requirements, Side-Stream Assembly can measure metal loss, corrosion/erosion rates, pressure, temperature, flow, and bacterial activity in pipelines. It includes multiple 1 in. tees, each configured with choice of monitoring technologies, and provides data within minutes. Flexible and adaptable configuration does not require plant shutdown for installation, and design enables system to be moved to other test locations.

Original Press Release:

New Cosasco® Side-Stream Assembly for Measuring Corrosion and Process Parameters

Cut corrosion inhibitor and maintenance costs significantly with Cosasco's new Side-Stream Assembly. The Side-Stream Assembly maximizes corrosion inhibitor efficiency, typically paying for itself within one year through inhibitor savings - allowing you to stop wasting money on over-protection.

But rest assured that your piping assets are properly monitored against under-protection. The Side-Stream Assembly embodies the quality and reliability you expect with a Cosasco system in a cost-effective, flexible, and adaptable configuration.

The Side-Stream Assembly installs quickly to provide metal loss, corrosion rate, erosion rate, pressure, temperature, flow, and bacterial activity in your pipelines. Configured to meet your specific requirements, the Assembly includes multiple, easily connected 1" tees. Each tee is configured with your choice of the following monitoring technologies, allowing a customized monitoring system that can include:
  • Microcor® corrosion and erosion rate measuring
  • Corrater® LPR and galvanic measuring
  • Bio-probes
  • Coupons
  • Process parameter measuring

    Customized for your application

    Multiple 1" tees allow for custom design for multiple monitoring options and future add-ons if necessary

    Key benefits of Cosasco's Side-Stream Assembly

  • Reduces corrosion inhibitor use enough to pay for itself, typically within one year

  • Quick ship

  • Quick installation; no plant shutdown required

  • Provides data within minutes instead of days

  • Easy to use

  • First costs much lower than conventional systems

  • Flexible configuration; multiple monitoring options

  • Easily moved to the next test location

  • No plant shutdown required for installation

  • Measures multiple process parameters including temperature, pressure, and flow rate

  • Gain immediate, improved, and economical asset management

    Corrosion inhibitors are effective but must be delivered at the proper rate. The price of over-protection is high, but the consequences of under-protection can be catastrophic. Given existing budget constraints, it has never been more important to effectively control your corrosion inhibitor program. The Side-Stream Assembly provides reliable corrosion monitoring while maximizing corrosion inhibitor efficiency. The result is immediate, improved, and economical asset management.
