Camfil, the industry expert in clean air solutions, has recently launched its latest innovation in corrosion control monitoring, the AirImage-COR.

Real-time corrosion monitoring and technology enables users to act before having to react. Corrosion is a natural process that occurs when metals react with molecular contaminants in the air. Metal surfaces gradually deteriorate and compromise the integrity of electronic components.

Electrical equipment is essential to the continuous operation of data centres, wastewater treatment facilities, petrochemical refineries, renewable energy plants, and now the emerging EV battery market.

These industries all rely on automation processes to improve safety and reliability. Corrosion leads to unscheduled downtime, costly repairs, loss of revenue, and increased safety risks.

The impact of corrosion extends beyond electronics. Collections in museums and archives are extremely sensitive to corrosion due to the presence of acidic gases.

Gas concentrations in such buildings may be low, but long-term exposure can lead to expensive restorations or even irreversible damage.

The regional product manager for Industrial Molecular filtration at Camfil, Thi Quynh Nguyen Mazo, said monitoring corrosion requires accuracy and reliability and the AirImage-COR delivers both with its electrical resistance (ER) Sensors.

“Standards such as ANSI/ISA-71.04-2013 have been developed to classify the environmental conditions for process measurement and control systems as it pertains to airborne contaminants to help mitigate the risk of corrosion,” he said.

“The AirImage-COR ER sensors have been qualified in a corrosion chamber to the ISA standard by injecting corrosive gases at different environmental conditions.

The most accurate sensors were selected. The selection was based on the evaluation of a variety of sensors with different non-conductive substrates and metal track deposition technologies.”

With the Progressive Web Application (PWA), the AirImage-COR offers a user-friendly solution to accurately monitor corrosion, temperature, relative humidity, and pressure via remote access in real time.

The AirImage-COR prevents costly downtime and unscheduled maintenance in critical processes.
