Corrosion Monitoring System Granted Patent

Friday, March 16, 2001
InterCorr International, the Houston-based corrosion engineering and technology company, was granted a new patent (US Application 09/202193) for "Assessment of Corrosion." The patent covers various aspects of corrosion assessment, the most fascinating of which includes the ability to automatically determine the corrosion mechanism without the need to rip open the pipe or vessel for inspection. Kenneth MacKenzie, Chairman of InterCorr, said, "Certainly the greatest challenge to industry in overcoming corrosion is to detect that there is a problem well in advance of a material failure. In most cases of pressure equipment, it can be too late even if corrosion is observed and patched during a turnaround inspection - equipment replacement is then inevitable, and costly. InterCorr's technology is targeted toward detecting corrosion problems as soon as they begin. The significance of detecting the corrosion mechanism is in helping to avoid those catastrophic or explosive failures that we read about all too often. We are delighted with the patent grant - we believe it represents a significant move forward for corrosion management technology." Elements of the new technology are incorporated within InterCorr's latest corrosion monitoring product, SmartCETTM. Mackenzie said, "Finally there is a low-cost, high-tech corrosion monitoring system that even the least experienced person can use with confidence and ease. Our plans for SmartCET are to bring corrosion monitoring to the masses, and we know that the best way to achieve our market goals is in providing the best at the lowest possible cost."
