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.
The U.S. congressional committee investigating the water crisis in Flint, Michigan issued final letters citing failures at all levels of government, including problems at both the Michigan Department of Environmental Quality and the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency.
Researchers from BP and several prominent European universities were awarded a contract to investigate the processes that cause surface degradation and develop new mitigation strategies.
Novel advanced sensors were attached to a hazard-resilient plastic pipeline installed underground and tested through a simulated fault rupture.
The results of recently completed trials show that adding low levels of ruthenium improve the corrosion and hydrogen enrichment resistance of a tantalum alloy in both hydrochloric and sulfuric acids at high temperatures.
A Virginia Department of Transportation investigation studied the use of self-consolidating concrete with and without galvanic anodes to repair substructure elements with vertical and overhead sections.
