Sensorlink PipeMonit® Swarm S1, S2 and with belts are high resolution ultrasonic erosion and corrosion monitoring tools which provides quick response to wall thickness changes in pipelines and vessels.
They are non-intrusive, and installed and operated without interfering with production.
Choose between the PipeMonit® Swarm S1 which is a low temperature system with wired data transfer or the PipeMonit® Swarm S2 which is a system with higher temperature specification and wireless data transfer.
The PipeMonit® Swarm S2 is a high temperature wall thickness monitoring system with temperature range up to 550 degree Celsius and wireless communication through ISA 100.
The PipeMonit® Swarm S2 is an ideal solution for corrosion monitoring in all places topside and onshore. With its resolution of 2,5 micrometer and temperature range also covering refineries and process plants it is a versatile tool.
A PipeMonit® Swarm S2 system typically consist of a Swarm S2 datalogger/transmitter unit and 1-4 Swarm S2 sensors.
PipeMonit® Swarm S1 is a system for lower temperatures and wired data communication.
It typically consists of a Swarm of sensors with multiple daisy chained Swarm S1 sensors organized in a customized matrix to cover a bend, straight pipe, or a weld.
Data can be transferred directly to your central control system (CCS), a distributed control system (DCS) or to the cloud. PipeMonit® Swarm S1 support all common communication protocols, such asz Modbus and CANbus, out of the box.
High accuracy pipeline corrosion monitoring and wall thickness measurement. The PipeMonit® Swarm Belts system is intended for special applications like slurry transport lines.
An advantage of the system is that customers can optimize their use of corrosion inhibitors or can predict the remaining service life of their pipeline.
The tool’s ultrasonic system provides reliable and repeatable high accuracy wall thickness measurements at selected locations along a pipeline. As the tool can be retrofitted at any time, it can be moved between different locations. It is easily clamped on to new or existing pipelines without special tools. The PipeMonit® tool causes no interference with ongoing pipeline operation.
A recent PipeMonit® Swarm Belts installation includes 14 measurement locations with dual 24 or 28 inch PipeMonit® belts. Each dual belt set carries 24 ultrasonic transducers monitoring the erosion rates. The belts are installed along a 5 kilometer pipeline. The PipeMonit tool is hooked up to the cell phone network. It communicates with the Sensorlink server which in turn distributes the erosion data directly to the customer via a secure web interface.
For onshore users data is presented in geographical maps (GIS) for ease of localization of measurements. Data are presented to users via a secure web interface. Each location has a status indicator that is sensitive to a predefined maximum wall thickness loss rate. Several more detailed user interfaces are provided for detailed follow-up.
PistonTrack is based on a proprietary electromagnetic method. The system works by monitoring the piston from an array of individual sensor elements clamped to the outside of the accumulator. PistonTrack is reliant on mounting a permanent magnet on to the piston before operations.

Corrosion and erosion is a major cost in the oil and gas and associated industries, and recurrently the reason for accidents and unplanned interruptions. Wall loss monitoring is important for verification of the asset’s integrity, optimizing chemical injection and corrosion and erosion mitigation and control.
The PipeMonit® Swarm’s unique design allows for installation on critical areas such as buried installations, top of welds, heated weld zones, elbows, and T-pieces to monitor and detect:
PipeMonit® Swarm substitutes probes and coupons in sour operations. It is designed to be used in the Oil & Gas, Petrochemical, Process, Mining and any other Industries with pipe wall erosion or corrosion problems.
PipeMonit® Swarm is built to endure challenging conditions and harsh environment throughout its field life. No moving parts means PipeMonit® Swarm is practically maintenance free and there is no need for calibration after installation.
