Crude oil naturally contains water, sulfur, and other contaminants that increase corrosivity and lead to the deterioration of transportation equipment. Equipment failure and leaks cost transportation companies $1.4B every year. Current sensors are too slow, unreliable, or limited to laboratories. In contrast, Petrichor has developed a sensor to track corrosivity of crude oils and ensure prevention of early corrosion in transportation equipment.
