For metalworking operations using extreme heat, a recent case study found that engineered plastic cooling towers could provide effective cooling without corroding.
An easy-to-use software program was developed to help make good material choices by predicting and quantifying galvanic corrosion risk.
Geothermal power is Iceland’s single largest source of energy; however, geothermal steam contains noncondensable gases that are considered to be either greenhouse, corrosive, or toxic.
A collaborative four-year research project will study microorganisms found in oil and gas pipeline environments and look for trends related to microbiologically influenced corrosion.
Researchers at the Missouri University of Science and Technology are testing mixtures of zero-cement concrete made with fly ash to see if it can be more durable and resilient than concrete using ordinary Portland cement.
Plastic packaging films can be readily impregnated with vapor-phase corrosion inhibitors (VCIs) to provide corrosion protection, in addition to the basic physical barrier afforded by the plastic.
External corrosion of preheater tubes in a power plant heat recovery boiler was analyzed, revealing that the preheater tubes were attacked by the sulfuric acid-containing electrolyte from the sulfur-containing environment.
Researchers from industry, academia, and U.S. Department of Energy laboratories are working together to research the corrosion of solar cells, with a goal of developing longer-lasting photovoltaic panels.
The Department of Defense Corrosion Policy and Oversight Office enlisted partners to expose various materials to outdoor tropical regions.
The protection of automatic marine lubrication systems with stainless steel (SS) metering valves could offer significant advantages over a prior solution of encapsulating valves in epoxy.
The U.S. Army wants to use biodegradable ammunition during training exercises, due in large part to how existing bullets can corrode and pollute the soil and water.
New regulations for hazardous liquid pipelines are part of a series of changes from PHMSA aimed at improving pipeline safety across the United States.
The new containment structure, moved into position in November 2016, includes a ventilation system that developers say will help ensure there is no need to replace the coating used to control corrosion.
A notice of proposed rulemaking issued by the U.S. Department of Transportation’s Pipeline and Hazardous Materials Safety outlines significant changes to the Pipeline Safety Regulations that are intended to increase the safety of natural gas pipelines.
Reinforced concrete samples with an organic corrosion-inhibiting admixture were exposed in a road salt environment in the Swiss Alps and periodically inspected over 18 years using a number of test methods.
