Because closed cooling loops can run with little maintenance for long periods of time, they can become a neglected part of a customer’s water treatment system. This neglect can lead to significant issues that can negatively impact heat transfer efficiency.
Charles S. Brown, PCS—deputy director of coatings at engineering, design, planning, and construction management firm Greenman-Pedersen, Inc.—offers a detailed checklist of safety and personal protective equipment (PPE) considerations when at a jobsite.
Data presented in this article show that an AC/DC approach offers superior corrosion inhibition performance when compared to incumbent closed loop corrosion inhibitors based on molybdate and filming amines.
As the calendar turns to 2022, here’s a look at new guidelines, standards, and practices that are currently being developed by AMPP’s SC 04, SC 11, and SC 20 committees.
Chemicals management can be a big challenge in upstream oil and gas industries. In recent years, by using corrosion management models, efforts were made to improve the economic and technical conditions.
Sponsored by AMPP’s technical coordination committee, the October 2021 event will include a series of meetings focused on methods of identifying, preventing, and combating corrosion problems across all major industries. The show was canceled in 2020 due to COVID-19.
Laboratory testing using biofilms can provide a reliable means to evaluate the potential for microbiologically influenced corrosion (MIC), and subsequently, to assess the effectiveness of biocides to inhibit biofilm growth and mitigate MIC during hydrotesting and wet parking.
The packaging industry recognizes its responsibility in attaining a closed loop cycle through the use of green corrosion inhibitors. In this study, several papers impregnated with green inhibitors were investigated. During manufacturing, storage, and transport, humidity, salts, and other corrosive substances in the environment, as well as temperature fluctuations, can make metal parts more susceptible to corrosion.
A new pretreatment method based on the electrodeposition of aluminum oxide provides several opportunities to improve vehicle fuel economy and reduce energy consumption and waste in vehicle manufacturing.
Having launched on January 6, 2021, the new organization, Association for Materials Protection and Performance (AMPP), represents a combination of NACE International and SSPC: The Society for Protective Coatings.
The chloride concentration effect in naphtha on the corrosion behavior of carbon steel was studied by simulating conditions within naphtha hydrotreating unit equipment.
After finding high efficiency in laboratory tests, scientists are intending to apply new bio-based corrosion inhibitors—developed on the basis of sunflower oil—in harsh Arctic conditions.
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.
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.
For the foreseeable future, fossil fuels will continue to be the dominant source of the world’s primary energy production. There has been growing concern that the use of these carbon-based fuels produces greenhouse gases, principally carbon dioxide (CO2), which adversely affect the global climate and environment. One way to mitigate the problem is to use carbon capture, transportation, and storage (CCTS) techniques and systems.
