UK: Emerson Acquires Permasense Wireless Corrosion Monitoring Added to Emerson's Portfolio
Emerson has agreed to acquire UK-based Permasense, a provider of non-intrusive corrosion monitoring technologies for the offshore and onshore oil production, refining, chemical, power, pipelines, metals and mining and other industries.
Aberdeen/UK — Permasense monitoring systems use sensor technology, wireless data delivery and advanced analytics to continuously monitor for metal loss from corrosion or erosion in pipes, pipelines or vessels, and reliably deliver high-integrity data from even the harshest environments. The acquired product line will become part of Emerson’s Rosemount portfolio of measurement and analytical technologies and will complement Emerson’s Roxar intrusive corrosion monitoring and non-intrusive sand management systems.
Lal Karsanbhai, group vice president, measurement and analytical technologies, Emerson Automation Solutions, said: “The addition of patented Permasense technologies along with our existing Roxar technologies enables Emerson to provide customers with a more complete corrosion monitoring solution and a clearer picture into the performance of their infrastructure based on what they’re demanding of it and the strategies needed to optimise production.”
