MOBILTEX Wins Materials Performance 2021 Corrosion Innovation of the Year Award
MOBILTEX continues to innovate within the Corrosion Monitoring & Protection Industry with two products nominated to the short list this year and the CorTalk RMU1+INT1 Test Station Remote Monitor with Interruption wins in the category ‘Cathodic Protection’
CALGARY, AB, April 20, 2021 /PRNewswire/ — MOBILTEX [an XPV Water Partners company] today announced it has been awarded the Materials Performance 2021 Corrosion Innovation of the Year Award for the CorTalk RMU1+INT1 platform in the category Cathodic Protection. The Materials Performance awards program motto is, “Innovate Today. Be the Change of Tomorrow.” which is exactly the mindset that drives the MOBILTEX product development teams and led to the design of CorTalk RMU1+INT1. Selected from dozens of nominations, the RMU1+INT1 received the coveted innovation award as judged by a distinguished panel of corrosion experts.
The CorTalk RMU1+INT1 package will enable utilities and pipeline operators to remotely perform interruption, obtain cathodic protection (CP) measurement data and dramatically reduce travel to remote locations to perform manual inspections and to conduct measurements of CP systems. Savings could be most significant for CP operators with critical bonds, which require measurements to be taken up to six times per year. The compact RMU1 G4 device adds two-way communication to enhance its robust CP remote monitoring capabilities of coupons, test points and structure bond applications. This new feature also enables the RMU1 to receive commands and to control the new INT1 device for GPS-synchronized interruption.
“MOBILTEX would like to first credit the incredible input from our industry colleagues who helped guide product development for the RMU1+INT1 right from its inception,” said Tony da Costa, VP of Engineering at MOBILTEX. “The enhanced RMU1 and new INT1 we feel are truly game-changing devices for our industry. This is an industry-first solution allowing corrosion and integrity engineers the ability to combine remote monitoring of CP systems and interruption of bonds and anodes into a compact, powerful package that fits entirely within a test point station. We are thrilled to receive this award, and we will use it as motivation to continue to develop technologies and products that bring real-world solutions to our customers’ challenges.”
“This award for the CorTalk RMU1+INT1, and also the nomination for the CorTalk RMU1-LITE, hold special significance to us because they come directly from highly-respected technical leaders within our industry,” said Marc Bracken, CEO at MOBILTEX. “These awards help validate that we are meeting and often exceeding industry expectations with the high level of innovation we’ve committed to as an organization, delivering next-generation IIoT products combined with our CorView Cloud Platform that increase safety and efficiency for our customers.”
