Patterns of moisture trapping underneath insulation were visualized using moisture detection imaging, and a contact-free insulation system with low-point drains achieved maximum drainage efficiency (97%) and the least trapping.
The new technique developed by University of Illinois researchers can potentially be used to make microcapsules that respond to changes in pH, which are useful for applications such as anticorrosion coatings.
PHMSA is proposing to clarify that cathodic protection rectifiers can be monitored remotely and to revise the requirements for assessing atmospheric corrosion on distribution service pipelines.
To keep you updated on the coronavirus pandemic, MP is compiling this regular guide of news and interviews as it pertains to the corrosion industry and its path forward in the era of COVID-19.
The ROVs measure metal thickness, paint thickness, and cathodic protection (CP) voltage—a corrosion prevention technique the Navy uses that charges the hull at a certain voltage to slow down corrosion.
The nominating period is now open for next year’s Corrosion Innovation of the Year Awards, with winners recognized in a wide range of categories related to corrosion prevention and mitigation.
The electrochemical corrosion behavior at different current densities was studied by using the potentiodynamic polarization and electrochemical impedance spectroscopy tests in combination with scanning electron microscopy.
The goal is to foster a technical society of forward-looking, proactive professionals equipped to support sustainability in tangible, meaningful ways via knowledge, standards, and a vision for future generations.
U.S. Army researchers have refined their high-pressure cold spray repair technique to the point where it is now the military’s preferred solution to corrosion damage and dimensional restoration.
Researchers performed two case studies to determine if over-the-line potential surveys could be successfully applied to electrically discontinuous water/wastewater lines and if the results aligned with the direct assessment methods.
Risk-based inspections are believed to be one of the most efficient types of inspections, based on numerous evaluations of site visits and of asset integrity audits.
Open circuit potential, electrochemical polarization, salt spray testing, and immersion testing in sodium chloride solution were employed to evaluate the anticorrosive ability of the water-based conversion film.
Members of NACE International voted in April to approve the association’s proposal to combine with SSPC: The Society for Protective Coatings. During the two-week voting period, thousands of NACE stakeholders worldwide cast votes, with an overwhelming 89% voting in favor of combining forces with SSPC.
Impressed current anodes for atmospherically exposed steel in concrete are very different from anodes for underground and underwater applications.
There are certain fundamental considerations that should be understood in relation to open recirculated systems.
