Major Petrochem Company installs Two PinPoint at 850 °C temp

Fiber Optic Systems Technology Inc a developer and manufacturer of patented non-intrusive sensing systems, announced the sale and installation of two PinPoint Monitoring Systems in a major petrochemical company located in Canada.

Sean Carr, Interim President & CFO of FOX-TEK said, "This is a very exciting achievement for our company. This installation required the welded version of our PinPoint system to operate at 850 degrees C.

Currently we are not aware of anyone else offering internal corrosion systems that are capable of operating at these temperatures.

With this sale, we have opened a new industrial sector - petrochemical plants. These plants are particularly demanding and have similar needs to that of refineries."

The FOX-TEK project manager noted "Work was very demanding in terms of the timing, the complexity of the PinPoint welded pins, and the timely successful certification of our two systems by the Canadian Standards Association.

Our PinPoint system had to be proven to operate at 850 degrees C prior to installation. During operation, the monitored pipes glow cherry red as PinPoint systems monitor for internal corrosion."

The Project Manager added "These two PinPoint systems will provide hourly data that will be used by plant engineers to adjust chemical settings as part of production.

The systems are designed to pay for themselves many times over, in terms of efficient operations and equipment longevity."
