Merging concepts like designing for purpose, maintaining with integrity, and decommissioning with a second life in mind are ideas that, if used in conjunction with adequate management tools, can help industries pursue the path of applying an effective corrosion management system.
The two-week event will provide a collaborative and convenient platform for corrosion and coatings industry professionals to network, learn, and develop new business.
Corrosion can be a significant challenge for refiners in downstream operations, and one of the key factors in causing corrosion in crude distillation unit overheads is hydrochloric acid (HCl).
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.
Diligent boiler feedwater treatment, involving mechanical deaeration and chemical treatment, is the primary defense against steam condensate corrosion. This article reviews further methods, including equipment design, materials selection, venting, reducing air ingress, and selecting steam traps.
In a research experiment, steel that was irradiated in molten salt showed less corrosion than samples that went through the same environmental treatment but without irradiation.
Twenty-first century x-ray technology has allowed University of Warwick scientists to peer back through time at the production of the armor worn by the crew of Henry VIII’s favored warship, the Mary Rose.
Researchers at the University of Central Florida are working to develop sophisticated computer models to better pinpoint the initial stages of stress-corrosion cracking.
Corrosion engineers are clearly needed in the desalination industry to not only ensure that the correct alloys are selected, but that proper technical specifications, including quality assurance and quality control, are in place to ensure the material delivered is fit for service.
The authors studied open-cell aluminum foams with different pore densities under marine conditions, with the objective of learning more about the corrosion behavior of these materials. The resulting deeper understanding is expected to lead to expanded utilization in advanced engineering applications.
A new study by engineers at Monash University has demonstrated improvements in the fatigue life of high strength aluminum alloys by 25 times, which the researchers believe could be significant for the transport manufacturing industry.
Built by researchers at Rice University, the compact Hyperspectral Stripe Projector is designed to collect the spatial and spectral information required for surface wear and corrosion detection, among many applications.
With recent improvements, computer modeling of alternating current (AC) interference effects on buried pipelines has become an engineering best practice, most notably with complex pipeline and high-voltage AC right-of-ways.
Researchers at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology offer a novel approach to designing fouling-resistant materials for use in nuclear reactors and other large-scale energy systems.
A team of researchers at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology and the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory have found that exposure to radiation can improve the resistance of certain alloys that could be used in fission or fusion reactors.
