Vapor Corrosion Inhibitors for Tank Bottom Corrosion Control

A study was recently conducted to determine the viability of vapor corrosion inhibitor (VCI) technology in mitigating corrosion. Overall, VCIs were found to be effective in mitigating corrosion when recommended dosages are used, and they could also be used in combination with impressed current CP systems.

Perforated Offshore Monopile for Corrosion Control, Marine Habitats

Recent field experiments demonstrated that a cathodically protected perforated monopile structure could create an environment with more favorable corrosion mitigation, air quality, and water chemistry compared to a sealed structure. A newly designed perforated offshore monopile system could help mitigate corrosion within the often flooded interiors of offshore wind turbine support structures.

Corrosion Basics: Coating Condition Surveys

Several elements of preplanning are necessary to effectively execute the condition survey. The first is a logical breakdown of the facility, and the second is to have a grading system to evaluate the observed conditions.
