Field Machine -

This instrument takes laboratory precision outdoors to oilrigs, pipelines, concrete walls and just about anything that needs corrosion monitoring in-situ. The potentiostat and ZRA are exactly as provided in the laboratory Gill 8 model ensuring the most accurate testing available. The choice of tests is not limited; the AC, IR Compensation and DC tests plus the Sequencer and Analysis that are supplied with this field instrument are the same as supplied with the laboratory instruments.

Our field machine is quite like none other on the market, allowing a light weight truly mobile unit which can withstand extreme conditions. The standard version is single channel, but the instrument is available with multiple channels up to a maximum of twelve.

A datasheet for this instrument is available here

Options Available:

Image Smaller & Lighter -
Using modern lithium polymer battery technology the new Field Machine is half the weight and significantly smaller than before, with all the capabilities of the standard version. Contact Maxine or read this information sheet for further details.
  Multiple channel version -
Up to a maximum of twelve channels are available, for more you should contact us.
 ER (Electrical Resistance) -
Our Field Machines can now be fitted with an ER option, allowing you to measure electrical resistance in one multi-purpose corrosion monitoring unit. ER application notes.

 Localised Corrosion Monitoring(*) - (*LCM™ - Patents Pending)

Developed in partnership with Baker Petrolite this innovative electrochemical technique is used for the measurement of localised corrosion initiation and the general corrosion rate.   The technique detects transients in the potential data and then calculates the charge, metal loss, penetration and average corrosion rate using a calibrating polarisation. For multi-channel instruments an option allowing simultaneous potential logging on all channels is available. LCM™ technique.
Linear Polarisation Resistance Noise is ideal for corrosion monitoring in multiple phase environments such as intermittent solutions and splash zones. LPRN application notes.
 Internet Control (Field Unit) - 
The Field Unit includes a built in mini PC, which when connected to a mobile phone allows remote monitoring and control from anywhere in the world via the internet.

Weld Test option -

A Field Machine with four additional working electrodes per channel, for testing multi-metal systems such as welds and central heating systems. Weld Testers.

 Image Field Logger

A stand-alone, battery or solar powered data logger for long term monitoring of LPR and/or potential vs. time data, ideal for use with our LCM technique for pitting corrosion. See the main page for more information or contact Andrew .
