Pepperl+Fuchs unique and highly popular CorrTran™ Corrosion Detection Transmitters now provide multivariable outputs with a single transmitter, including general and local corrosion rates, as well as conductivity, via a two-wire loop powered 4-20mA signal with HART protocol. This allows users to determine the effectiveness of their corrosion inhibitors, and to detect and correct corrosion issues through upkeep and preventative maintenance before they become a costly problem.
The latest family of CorrTran transmitters uses a new algorithm of the LPR (Linear Polarization Resistance), HDA (Harmonic Distortion Analysis) and ECN (ElectroChemical Noise) measurement for greater accuracy. They also automatically calculate and update the Stern-Geary value (B-value) due to changes in other process variables to maintain maximum corrosion monitoring accuracy.
CorrTran transmitters can be located in both general purpose, intrinsically safe, explosion/flame proof and Class I, Division 2 hazardous locations, and are suitable for direct or remote mounting. New models feature the same design and dimensions as earlier versions, and can be retrofitted to older units.
