Corrosion is typically not recognized until it’s too late, resulting in damage that could have been prevented. Camfil’s AirImage-COR corrosion control monitor instantly measures corrosive gases in the air to indicate the corrosivity level of an environment and the threat it poses to sensitive electronics and valuable assets.
Corrosion is a natural process that occurs when metals react with molecular contaminants in the air, resulting in the gradual deterioration of the metal properties. Corrosion can cause damage to machinery, equipment, and museum collections leading to costly repairs, safety hazards, or permanent loss of cultural heritage. Corrosion can also compromise the integrity of electronic components reducing their lifetime and efficiency.
Electrical equipment is essential to the continuous operation of data centers, wastewater treatment plants, or industrial, commercial, and healthcare facilities. To help mitigate the risk of corrosion, standards such as ANSI/ISA-71.04-2013 have been developed to classify the environmental conditions for process measurement and control systems as it pertains to airborne contaminants.
Real-time corrosion monitoring identifies areas requiring air filtration to control corrosive molecular contaminants.
