Inductosense WAND wall thickness monitoring technology approved by Saudi Aramco
SAUDI ARAMCO, the largest oil and gas company in the Middle East, is the latest major operator to formally approve Inductosense’s corrosion monitoring technology. The WAND system has performed successfully throughout the trials, having been installed on pipework and vessels across 6 Saudi Aramco gas plants and refineries in remote, harsh environments throughout the Saudi Arabian summer last year.
Inductosense’s patented, ultrasonic WAND system enables highly cost-effective internal corrosion monitoring of pipework and vessels. Unlike alternative corrosion monitoring solutions, the WAND sensors are battery-free, wireless and can be embedded underneath coating or insulation. Anyone can acquire accurate, repeatable measurements.
Dr. ChengHuan Zhong, CTO of Inductosense, says “This is a big achievement for the team, we have experienced rapid growth over the last 7 years, these approvals serve to validate our efforts and demonstrate the growing confidence in our technology. Saudi Aramco marks the 7th major operator to approve WAND for use within their organisation – we are now in a very positive position to roll out larger volume deployments to customers on a global scale, delivering significant cost and time savings and improving the quality of data”
