Overcoming Capacitive Effects on Interrupted Surveys with New Technologies

Confirming effective cathodic protection on a target structure involves verification of accurate measured potentials to compare against industry criteria. This is often performed via an interrupted survey to remove certain errors, yet a capacitive effect present in some situations may influence the readings, leading the operator toward incorrect conclusions.

Corrosion Under Insulation Assessment, Monitoring, and Management

Corrosion under Insulation (CUI) is a widespread problem affecting several industries, causing significant loss of containment events. Due to its aggressive but hidden nature, CUI poses a significant challenge to operators. This presentation discusses approaches for combating CUI.

Systems for Mitigation of Corrosion Under Insulation

The presence of moisture is necessary for corrosion under insulation (CUI) to occur. When designing process facilities, the selection of the insulation system is an important factor. Improper choices can not only lead to under-performing insulation systems, but also contribute to issues associated with CUI.

Multiple Effect Distillation — Then and Now

Fresh water is in increasing demand, particularly in arid and hot climates. Desalination is more commonly being used to remove the salt from brackish water and seawater to make it drinkable. Although the most favored desalination method is seawater reverse osmosis, multiple effect distillation (MED) can be competitive, particularly if associated with a power station with spare steam.
