Early detection of corrosion or the advent of corrosive environments in nominally protected assets, and monitoring its extent can help control corrosion initiated failures and predict the degradation or useful remaining life of utility pipeline infrastructure. Although preventive maintenance and periodic visual inspections are utilized to monitor damage and assess costs of corrosion, an autonomous monitoring system is desired to reduce maintenance costs and improve monitoring efficiency. An integrated sensor suite that measures true corrosion rates, corrosive damage or corrosivity autonomously and in real-time communicate this information to an analysis hub is being proposed here.
