Measuring corrosion rates is an important part of keeping potential problems from becoming disastrous realities. webPIMS™data from Sensor Networks’ PIMS devices provides users with critical short- or long-term corrosion rate information that is needed to monitor crude-slate changes or to correlate operational system updates. In the United States, corrosion rates are typically calculated using mils or 0.001” per year units. International customers generally prefer mm/year. Users can choose and easily switch from Imperial to Metric and back.
Enabling mils/yr. in Personal Settings:
- Click on the username on the top right menu of the main dashboard page to access the settings menus. Click on Personal Settings.
- Scroll down to the Units and Precision section.
- Select the mil/yr. setting under Personal Settings. Click the check box to display corrosion rates as mils/yr. Then click Save Settings.
Note: The Mils/yr. mode only works with the units set to inch. Mil/yr. will display in 3 and 4 decimal points depending on the 3 or 4 decimal places as selected for inch resolution. If 1 or 2 are selected, mil/yr. will still display in 3 places.
All fields displaying corrosion rates throughout webPIMS will display the units in mil/yr.
