Hydrosteel 7000 - .PDF file.

Ion Science has introduced the Hydrosteel 7000 transportable light (TL), a lightweight corrosion monitor for the non-intrusive measurement of hydrogen flux.

The Hydrosteel 7000 TL is a standalone battery-operated kit that weighs 8kg, 15lb.

The instrument has been designed for easy installation at the top of tall refinery towers and columns.

Ion Science said a benefit of Hydrosteel 7000 TL is its ability to continuously monitor active corrosion and hydrogen risk damage, non-intrusively.

This is said to be particularly useful for sour, HF and high-temperature corrosion events that occur over timescales of days, weeks and months.

Most non-intrusive monitors depend upon measuring difference in metal thickness over time.

This prevents the measurement being identified by a corrosion cause.

As flux responds to hour-by-hour changes in corrosion, Hydrosteel 7000 TL can be used to identify what process parameters cause changes in corrosivity.

Hydrosteel 7000 TL is said to be highly accurate and provides sensitive and precise hydrogen flux measurements.

Hydrosteel 7000 TL monitors continuously, without any human intervention, and responds to corrosion changes within minutes.

Ion Science said the instrument provides customers with an advantage by not relying on an explosion-proof box to confer safe use in intrinsic areas and by requiring no bespoke probe fittings.

Developed for the continuous monitoring of hydrogen activity, Hydrosteel 7000 TL is used within critical refinery sites suffering from sour corrosion and risk of hydrogen damage.

Target industries for Hydrosteel 7000 TL include refineries, gas plants, gas oil separation plants and chemical industries using petrochemicals containing sour gas, and ammonia production.

Ion Science manufactures and distributes a unique portfolio of technologically advanced gas detection equipment.


The range comprises of hand-held and fixed photoionisation detection (PID) instruments with a detection range of ppb to 10,000 ppm for volatile organic compounds (VOC’s) and other toxic gases. Also available are leak detectors for the detection of SF6 gas in high voltage switchgear and fixed or roaming corrosion monitors for the detection of hydrogen flux in steel pipes. Ion Science instruments are suitable for a wide range of industries and applications that include environmental, landfill, brownfield, petrochemical, first response, industrial safety and confined space entry.


Products are available through a global network of distributors. The company delivers a range of service options to customers designed to provide a full calibration, maintenance and repair service for all Ion Science instruments. Custom built facilities are located at Ion Science, or through a network of Authorised Service Centres around the globe.
