Lowering corrosion-related costs in a company takes more than technology; it requires a change in how corrosion decisions are made within an organization.
What is Microbiologically Induced Corrosion (MIC) Microbiologically influenced corrosion is corrosion caused by the presence and activities of microorganisms in biofilms on the surface of the ...
Formed in 1920, the Mukilteo Water & Wastewater District (MWWD) is the oldest active water district in the state of Washington. It provides water and wastewater services to customers north of Seattle ...
Painting an amusement park roller coaster is a painstaking work of art. The owner of the roller coaster wants the complex metal structure to look colorful and awe-inspiring, leaving patrons with ...
Implementing and maintaining effective corrosion control programs are essential keys for service life extension of water utility pipe assets. As part of an ongoing Water Research Foundation project ...
A 2016 NACE International study underlined the importance of a properly designed Corrosion Management System (CMS) for organizations. The IMPACT study also estimated that the annual global cost of ...
Microbial action has been identified as a contributor to rapid corrosion of metals and alloys exposed to soils; seawater, distilled water, and freshwater; crude oil, hydrocarbon fuels, and process ...
How can you be sure that a metallic surface is well prepped for the best possible coating application outcome? New standards, jointly developed by NACE International and the Society for Protective ...
Here are some essential tools and important tips that can help with completing quality assurance (QA) of the protective coatings inspection quality control (QC) process -- from inspector training, ...
Regularly scheduled maintenance and inspections keep water/water treatment plants running optimally and provide early detection of issues that, when resolved quickly, can prevent the need for larger, ...
Cathodic Protection (CP) is a common technique used to control the corrosion of a metal surface by making it the cathode of an electrochemical cell. It can be accomplished by sending a current into ...
Corrosion management practices implemented throughout organizations ensure safer, long-lasting protection of assets such as pipelines; increase return on investment (ROI) while decreasing life cycle ...
Microbiologically influenced corrosion (MIC) is especially likely in jetty pipelines. Many refineries and oil terminals are located beside major stretches of water—either a sea or river—to provide an ...
Ambient-cure-type fluoropolymer topcoats were invented in the beginning of the 1980s, and since then, coating systems using fluoropolymer as a topcoat have been applied to a variety of steel and ...
Although the anticorrosion coating combination of fusion-bonded epoxy (FBE) with abrasion-resistant overcoat (ARO) is well known within the oil and gas industry, ARO coating systems are not typically ...
Designing cathodic protection (CP) systems for buried piping in power plants and other similar industrial facilities offers several unique challenges. The following discusses these challenges and ...
Fully implemented corrosion management should address inspection and failure risk assessment (FRA), with the FRA process including an inspection scope that is fully risk-based. While one of the most ...
According to researchers from the Graz University of Technology (TU Graz) (Graz, Austria), geopolymer-based concrete (GPC) offers superior resistance to acids, abrasions, and are less permeable than ...
Because seawater contains a significant concentration of dissolved salts and is very corrosive to steel, infrastructure and assets in or near marine environments are particularly susceptible to ...
At U.S. wastewater industrial plants, the Environmental Protection Agency (Washington, DC) enforces requirements to ensure that operators pretreat pollutants in their wastes to protect local sanitary ...
The U.S. Bureau of Reclamation (Denver, Colorado, USA) is best known for constructing U.S. dams, power plants, and canals in 17 western states. These structures have steel equipment, such as ...
For pipeline coating inspectors, every day on the job is different; every case is unique in some way; and many parameters can be behind the reason for the inspection. As a result, learning follows ...
