Large Scale Deployment of SpotOn U Systems in India

See below for more information relating to our range of non-intrusive corrosion monitoring systems.

Laboratory and In-Field Technologies for Scale, Wax, Corrosion and Microbiology   

The Process Measurement and Control Group (PMAC) have just completed a project in India, which involved the installation of a large number of SpotOn U non-intrusive corrosion monitoring systems. The systems were installed on oil & gas pipelines ranging from 24” to 42” diameter at two key onshore receiving terminals.


Although the client was monitoring the offshore side of the pipelines with probes & coupons, there were no access points available to actively monitor conditions at the onshore terminal. Hot-tapping was not seen as a desirable option, so the client chose a non-intrusive solution which could be deployed under normal operating conditions.

On this occasion, the client requested that the monitoring sensors be installed as an array, providing both top and bottom of line coverage. The systems simple clamp-on design will also allow the sensors to be relocated to different positions when desired.​


Although numerous data acquisition options are available for the SpotOn systems (Wi-Fi, satellite, GSM), this particular application called for wall thickness readings to be stored in an SD card equipped logger, with data being downloaded to a hand held device periodically.


The campaign was completed safely and on schedule, with training on how to install and operate the systems also provided to local field technicians.
