We have a crazy offer for you during August and September, order by 30th September 2020 to get the MERLIN6 AC Monitor or the MERLIN6 CP Hemi Monitor for only $499*.
Although not usually taken as frequently as at the rectifier, manual measurements at CP test points are only spot checks, they only indicate problems well after they have occurred and have no alarm capability. By contrast, MERLIN6 AC Monitors and the MERLIN6 CP Hemi Monitors provide an immediate indication of CP levels at the important points in the pipeline network.
Manually collecting and analysing field measurements at test posts is labour-intensive and costly. And (very importantly) they can only be reactive – problems can lie undetected for long periods, during which the pipeline is insufficiently protected.
Alternatively it may simply be that certain measurement points on the pipeline create risks to CP technicians, such as at busy road or rail crossings, or are difficult to access, such as on private land. At these points remote monitoring is very cost-efficient and can improve safety.
Further consideration should be made to monitor the effect of induced AC on the pipeline causing extremely aggressive ‘AC corrosion’. This can cause major problems in a very short time, often sooner than the frequency of manual measurements. Combine this with a very real danger if the AC is too high means monitoring the effect of stray AC currents is critical.
Abriox has a number of RMU’s for these applications; the MERLIN6 AC Monitor and the MERLIN6 CP Hemi Monitor (which fit invisibly within a standard diameter cylindrical riser post).
Because all Abriox MERLIN RMU’s report to a common software platform, different monitor types can be mixed together in the same network.
