At the Warner Robins Air Logistics Complex, the maintenance team of the advanced metal finishing facility uses a novel system for corrosion prevention, wear protection, etching, cleaning, and chemical milling in preparation for paint and other follow-on manufacturing processes.
Microbiologically influenced corrosion (MIC) is a major integrity threat for water treatment systems as well as other utility water systems. This article explores the shortcomings of erroneous chemical treatments and their main root cause(s).
Quantifying microorganisms associated with microbiologically influenced corrosion (MIC) can provide insight into a system’s corrosion risk, as well as the efficacy of its management programs. This article features related insight from LuminUltra, which was a winner in the 2023 Materials Performance (MP) Corrosion Innovation of the Year Awards.
The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s revised lead and copper rule for drinking water costs $335 million to implement while generating $9 billion in annual health benefits. According to a university study, this significantly exceeds prior projections.
In this case study, a piping failure during fire water service operation was investigated using metallographic techniques. According to the author, the use of metallurgical investigations during inspection programs for petroleum and petrochemical plants can help to discover the root causes of corrosion.
Effective April 1, 2023, Alan Thomas became the new CEO of the Association for Materials Protection and Performance (AMPP). In this exclusive interview, AMPP’s new leader introduces himself while expressing some initial priorities.
Tyler Laughorn, corrosion control specialist at Burns & McDonnell, explains what industry professionals need to know regarding PHMSA’s recently finalized rule on protective coatings, cathodic protection surveys, and internal corrosion monitoring and mitigation for gas transmission pipelines.
Tim Goddette, deputy assistant secretary for sustainment, recently visited Aviation and Missile Command headquarters at Redstone Arsenal, Alabama, to discuss the U.S. Army’s nondestructive testing and corrosion program.
OLI Systems, described as a global leader in process design and operational insights for chemical processes, earned a U.S. Department of Energy research award for its advanced process simulation to mitigate the risks of corrosion and mineral scaling in geothermal energy.
