Celebrating 10 years in business Tuesday, 31st July 2018

Since our formation in 2008 Permasense have supplied over 18,000 sensors to over 200 customers globally.

Dr Christoph Gillessen was the Head of Integrity at BP’s Gelsenkirchen refinery when the very first wireless Permasense sensors were installed 10 years ago: ‘working with the Permasense team, which was just two guys at the time, we installed the 30 first ever non-intrusive thickness monitoring sensors in a crude unit including the heater, which was operating at 360 C. The system worked straight out of the box and within weeks we had precisely measured the corrosion rates and identified where excessive corrosion rates were occurring. The data, which could be viewed at our desks, enabled us to continue to safely operate the refinery processing price-advantaged crudes until the next scheduled turnaround. Seeing the first Permasense system installed and working at our refinery with instantanuous economic value/effect was one of the highlights of my career.’
