Corrosion monitoring is the practice of acquiring information on the progress of corrosion-induced damage to a material or on the corrosivity of the environment surrounding the material. Corrosion monitoring also provides performance data and a basis for life prediction; it is one of the most important components in corrosion prevention and corrosion control.

Corrosion monitoring employs a variety of techniques to determine how corrosive the environment is and at what rate metal loss is being experienced. Corrosion monitoring techniques can help in several ways:

  1.  Providing an early warning that damaging process conditions exist
  2.  Diagnosing a particular corrosion problem and identifying its cause
  3.   Evaluating the effectiveness of a corrosion control/prevention technique
  4.   Determining optimal application of corrosion control/prevention techniques
  5.   Providing management information relating to the maintenance requirements   and ongoing condition of plant.

A large number of corrosion monitoring techniques exist. The following list details the most common techniques which are used in industrial applications:

  • Corrosion Coupons (weight loss measurements)

  • Electrical Resistance (ER)

  • Linear Polarization Resistance (LPR)

  • Galvanic (ZRA) / Potential

  • Hydrogen Penetration

  • Microbial

Corrosion Monitoring Application

Corrosion monitoring is usually applied where:

  • High pressure, high temperature, flammable, explosive, toxic processes exists;
  • There is the probability of high corrosivity in equipments;
  • corrosion rate may have changed due to Changes in operating conditions;
  • Corrosion inhibitors are in use;
  • There is high concentration of corrosive constituents in process;
  • Process feedstock is changed;
  • Plant output or operating parameters are changed from design specifications;
  • Evaluation of corrosion behavior of alloys is necessary;
  • Induced potential shifts are used to protect systems and/or structures;
  • There is a vital concern about product contamination due to corrosion.
