U.S. regulators are making progress on a bill that emphasizes the need for corrosion planning and qualified personnel on bridge construction, replacement, and maintenance.
This webcast provides insight into solutions for corrosion under insulation (CUI), which can be a challenge for high-temperature applications such as refineries and petrochemical facilities.
The objective of the system are to revolutionize the U.S. remote monitoring industry by addressing many existing shortcomings and creating a new standard of cathodic protection RMU, which can deliver superior data more frequently and at a lower cost.
The latest standard practices, which are available now in the AMPP Store, were released in 2021. Topics include corrosion inhibition selection and management for oil and gas production, as well as a standard guide for the laboratory immersion corrosion testing of metals.
This webcast explores how downstream gas distribution and water utilities are setting out on a journey to optimize their cathodic protection (CP) assets in high-consequence areas (HCAs) due to proximity to residential areas.
Solvent-free epoxy coatings offer very low environmental impact, but due to the lack of a clear and universal definition of "solvent-free" epoxy coatings, we see a huge range in volatile organic compound content in such coatings. This article offers a proposal for a common universal definition.
In this study, the explosion failure of a bellows expansion joint made of Type 304 stainless steel (UNS S30400) in a pipeline conducting methane (CH4) gas at 400 °C is analyzed.
Understanding the corrosion process and how to mitigate it by applying the correct protection procedure is crucial for reducing corrosion damage costs. This webcast explains how simulation is an efficient way to investigate corrosion processes and design protection systems by visualizing and understanding the impact of design changes.
Corrosion under insulation (CUI) may hinder thermal performance and lead to leaks, unexpected downtime, and repairs, while adding risk to employees and facilities. Using a systems approach to how insulation is selected and maintained can improve facility longevity and employee safety.
Through the annual program, CoatingsPro showcases projects and crews that demonstrate excellence in the commercial and industrial high-performance coatings sectors.
Any mechanical disturbance of the protective film can stimulate attack of the underlying metals until either the protective film is re-established, or the metal has been corroded away. Erosion-corrosion is encountered most frequently in pumps, valves, centrifuges, elbows, impellers, inlet ends of heat exchanger tubes, agitated tanks, and so forth.
The stress corrosion cracking (SCC) susceptibility of 7075 aluminum alloy (AA7075) under different two-stage aging processes was studied by using the Rockwell B hardness test and slow strain rate tensile test, combined with scanning electron microscopy
In this roundtable discussion, shipping industry leaders within an AMPP Technical Exchange Group (TEG532x) share success stories from their ongoing collaboration. Guests include Elisabeth Charmley, Naval Architect for one of the world's largest ship managers; Johnny Eliasson, Hull and Coatings Engineer at Chevron Shipping; and Buddy Reams, Captain USCG (retired), Chief Technical/Maritime Officer of AMPP.
The main causes of corrosion of steel in concrete are chloride attack and carbonation. Aggressive chemical species pass through the pores in the concrete and attack the steel.
In this case study, investigators found that a buried log or root had likely affected the exterior coating on a ductile iron waste pipe. None of the inspections prior to the rupture, which spilled nearly 15 million gallons of untreated sewage, had caught the damage.
