Introduction
Corrater® Systems
Introduction
• Corrosion cost water industries millions of dollars each
year in equipment damage and downtime
• Because of many variables corrosion can be hard to
predict
• Corrater Systems were developed exclusively for
measuring corrosion rate and pitting tendency in
conductive liquids (water)
• Corrater instruments and probes are
widely used in cooling, re-injection
process, potable, boiler and effluent
water systems
Corrater® Systems
Introduction
• Employs Linear Polarization Resistance (LPR) and uses
patented Solution Resistance Compensation (SRC)
technology
• Captures corrosion rates in moments with just a single
reading, more accurately than competitive systems
• Field proven pitting tendency from an electrochemical
current noise sample, more reliable than competitive
noise methods
• Provides a wider operating range than traditional two and
three-electrode LPR methods

Components
Corrater® Systems
Components
-Probes-
• CORRATER® probes provide a direct measure of corrosion rate and
a qualitative pitting tendency of metals in electrolytes by the
technique of LPR
• CORRATER® probes interact with the electrochemical corrosion
mechanism in order to determine the rate at which metal ions are
passing into solution (corroding)
A simple reaction
of iron in neutral
aerated water
Corrater® Systems
Components
-Probes-
• Replaceable electrodes double as corrosion
coupons providing a significant advantage
over other electrochemical and
electrochemical noise probe designs
• Electrodes are quickly
and easily replaceable
saving you both time
and money
Corrater® Systems
Components
-Instruments-
• Portable instruments are an affordable option
due to their flexibility and portability making them
an essential pocket instrument for every water
treatment engineer
• On-line instruments are essential in plants
where continuous supervision of corrosion is
required and prevention
of process upsets is critical

Summary
Corrater® Systems
Summary
• Corrater Systems employ Linear Polarization Resistance
(LPR) to measure corrosion rate and a noise sample for
pitting tendency in conductive liquids (water)
• The RCS patented SRC (Solution Resistance Compensation)
technology provides the highest measurement accuracy with
2-electrode probes over a range of conductivities from salt
water to condensates
• Both portable and on-line models available for quick and
accurate corrosion measurements
• A variety of probes with varying temperature and pressure
ratings available based on your specific needs
Corrater® Systems
Summary
• When used with data loggers or on-line Corrater
Systems can provide the same value as weight loss
coupons but deliver the following additional benefits:
– The time frame to calculate corrosion rate is user
determined allowing flexibility to quantify upset conditions,
etc.
– Inhibitor changes can be quickly evaluated
– Changing process conditions can be quickly identified
– Corrosion rate data can be quickly presented without
lengthy coupon analysis
