MS0500 ER Corrosion Meter

The MS0500 is a battery-powered, portable corrosion meter capable of measuring all types of electrical resistance (ER) corrosion probes. Combining light weight with ease of operation, the MS0500 is a simple and effective tool for gathering corrosion data from one or many probe locations.

Corrosion rate measurements are made using the electrical resistance method. Essentially, the instrument measures the resistance of the probe element which changes over time as metal loss occurs. The rate of change is directly proportional to the corrosion rate. This method finds a wide variety of applications since it can be used in conductive and nonconductive environments, such as petroleum, chemical, water, soil, or even atmosphere.

The MS0500 has a permanently attached cable assembly which mates directly to any standard ER probe. A switch is provided on the front panel of the instrument for selecting the probe type to be measured (wire loop, tube loop, cylindrical, etc.). Readings are taken using the dial and analog meter on the front panel.
