Corrosion in itself is a natural process that converts refined metals into chemically stable forms. After corrosion the metals start to lose their fine state and undergo the stage of gradual destruction. Metals are basic components of building in modern era and are available everywhere as a part of structure. We must know what is corroding and at what rate it is corroding. The device that is used for keeping log of corrosion in industrial or commercial places is the corrosion data logger.
Vacker Kuwait supplies a wide range of corrosion data loggers to most of the major cities of Kuwait namely Dammam, Riyadh, Al Khobar, Jeddah, Jubail, Medina, Najran, Mecca and Khamis Mushayt. The corrosion data logger is a portable hand-held device that is powered by the battery. It consists of an inbuilt corrosion meter that is capable of measuring and storing data that are recorded from all types of corrosion probes. This device is based on microprocessor and their characteristics are very simple and easy to use.
Corrosion data loggers measure corrosion rate with the application of electric resistance method. Most importantly, these devices calculate the resistance of the probe element that might change from time to time during the course of metal loss. However, the change of resistance per unit time is directly proportional to the rate of corrosion. This method is used in a variety of applications because it is applicable to both conductive and nonconductive environments like; water, soil, chemical, petroleum, atmosphere and much more.
After completion of readings, the corrosion data loggers have the function of displaying loss of metals in mils and the rate of corrosion in mils per year. Such readings are stored in memory cards or if the readings are of low importance then such readings can be easily discarded. The stored readings have the attributes of date and time and the device is backed up by a lithium battery. The device has a memory capacity of storing up to 3,100 readings from 150 different probes.
Further, the data that are stored in the memory device can be transferred to your PC as a text file (comma-delimited ASCII file). Because of this format, it can be easily exported to any regular data analysis program like MS Excel, Corel Quattro Pro, Lotus 123, etc. After that, the data can be processed for analysis accordingly. For an instant reference, the data can be accessed through the LCD display screen.
