MS2900L - CorrTran MV

LPR 4-20mA / HART® Transmitter

Metal Samples' CorrTran MV transmitter measures general corrosion, localized corrosion (pitting), and conductance, and transmits that information to operators via 4 to 20mA / HART® protocol in real time. The corrosion rate or pitting factor is configured as the primary variable using a standard 2-wire 4 to 20 mA output. The remaining outputs are configured as secondary and tertiary HART variables.

The CorrTran MV utilizes state-of-the-art algorithms and data analysis techniques to accurately measure general corrosion rate and pitting. Harmonic distortion analysis (HDA) is applied to improve the performance of the industry-accepted linear polarization resistance (LPR) technique used to measure corrosion rate.

To further enhance the performance, an application-specific Stern-Geary variable (B value) is calculated and updated every measuring cycle. There is no need to manually update the B value because of process changes. During the measurement cycle, the CorrTran MV also performs an automated electrochemical noise (ECN) measurement, which in combination with the corrosion rate data can provide a measurement of localized corrosion (pitting).

The CorrTran MV works with Metal Samples three-electrode CorrTran style probes and electrodes. Probes are available in a variety of mounting types and materials to suit almost any type of installation.
