Emerson has announced it has agreed to acquire Permasense Ltd. Permasense monitoring systems use sensor technology, wireless data delivery and advanced analytics to monitor for metal loss from corrosion or erosion in pipes, pipelines or vessels.
The acquisition represents another step forward in Emerson’s strategy to invest in its core business platforms and expand in markets that hold significant long-term growth opportunity.
“Corrosion and erosion can significantly impact the safe and reliable operation of our industrial customers’ infrastructure, which can have dire consequences. Wireless non-intrusive corrosion monitoring is a transformational shift that helps customers immediately understand the health and integrity of their infrastructure in real-time and enables them to fully optimise their operations while maximising safety,” said Mike Train, president, Emerson Automation Solutions. “For example, with the increasing complexity of the types of crude oil coming into a refinery, corrosion is becoming a significant issue in the uptime and profitability of a refinery. Now refinery infrastructure can be monitored and controlled using this non-intrusive technology.”
The Permasense product line will become part of Emerson’s Rosemount portfolio of measurement and analytical technologies.
Lal Karsanbhai, Group Vice President, Measurement and Analytical Technologies, Emerson Automation Solutions, added: “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.”
