Global technology and engineering company Emerson (St. Louis, Missouri, USA) recently introduced The Plantweb Insight Inline Corrosion application to provide the oil and gas industry with real-time interpretation and analysis of critical data.

The objective is to help prioritize maintenance and enable operators to make informed integrity decisions.

According to the company, the application delivers field data from Roxar wireless corrosion transmitters, which provide insight into instrument health and process corrosivity.

The application offers alerts on preset thresholds for severe corrosivity, probe lifespan for electric resistance (ER) probes, low battery levels, and more. The dashboard displays an intuitive heatmap with intelligence on the corrosivity of fluid levels, based on the appropriate NACE International standard.

This latest Industrial Internet of Things (IIOT) application integrates into existing wireless infrastructures and delivers field data as frequently as once every 15 minutes. By keeping operators updated on changing conditions remotely, the application allows personnel to make fewer manual inspections in the field, which minimizes their exposure to hazardous areas.

As part of Emerson’s Plantweb digital ecosystem, the application is the latest addition to a scalable and secure portfolio of transformational technologies, software, and services.

Easily integrated with a variety of WirelessHART gauges and remote field sensors, the Plantweb Insight applications are designed to combine continuous, real-time data harvested from the company’s Pervasive Sensing technologies with predictive analytics to give maintenance and operations personnel actionable, up-to-date process information in any location.
