  • Corrosion Inspection

    Everything made of metal is susceptible to corrosion and can effect every non-service industry to one degree or another by the direct or indirect costs of corrosion prevention, mitigation or repair. The VJ-Advance (VJ-ADV) video borescope was used to take images above. The VJ-ADV is the ideal choice for any technician involved in corrosion control. No other borescope offers this level of ...

  • Corrosion and fouling control in process equipment

    Effective chemical treatment programmes can help to prevent plant damage and financial losses arising from corrosion and fouling. Corrosion attack is an omnipresent threat in oil refineries and petrochemical plants. It may lead to loss of production, cost of maintenance and repairs, replacement cost for equipment, safety aspects and potential environmental impact. If corrosion is ...

  • Impact of Corrosion on Electronic Equipment

    Corrosion is the destruction of metals through reaction with compounds in their environment. It is a natural process because compounds such as oxides, sulphides and chlorides are formed and these are stabler than pure metals. Electronic circuits and components are omnipresent in our environment. Until recently, the thousands of soldered joints that an electronic circuit contains were ...

  • Case study - Procurement and installation of a Biogas desulphurization unit at the Chania WWTP

    A proposal based on Bioconservacion’s technology was selected as the winning bid in the public tender released in 2015, covering the design, procurement and construction of a biogas desulfurizing unit to be installed in the waste water treatment plant in Chania, Greece. With a population over 100,000, Chania is the second largest municipality in the Greek island of Crete. Its waste water ...

  • No more odor and corrosion case study

    Sewer systems are vulnerable to corrosion and, at times, can be the source of unpleasant odors. Kemira’s new H2S-Guard tackles both problems, as in most cases the source of these issues is hydrogen sulphide, forming in septic areas, in other words areas where no oxygen for metabolic reactions is available. The H2S-solution combines three important steps: measurement, monitoring and control ...

  • Corrosion resistant FRP reduces maintenance issues for water and wastewater treatment and control

    At this Wastewater Treatment Plant in Glendale Heights, IL, an aluminum slide gate had to be forced open using a front-end loader and a chain after seizing in place due to inevitable corrosion. The corrosive bond was so severe that the chain snapped upon the first attempt. The water and wastewater treatment and control industry is a prime example of how constant exposure to toxic elements can and ...

  • Case histories of using tin technology to control corrosion in water systems

    Stannous chloride is an alternative corrosion control in aqueous systems. Stannous chloride’s effectiveness as a better corrosion inhibitor has been demonstrated in both municipal drinking water and industrial cooling water applications and its use has a reduced impact on rivers and streams. Orthophosphate and other phosphate compounds are the most common treatments for reducing corrosion in ...

  • Corrosive free compost facility for Waste Options Nantucket

    Veldeman’s daughter company, Universal Fabric Structures was appointed by Nantucket Waste Options to construct their aeration and biofilter structures. More then 5.500m² of TFS structures in a custom layout meet the island wind loads and provide a corrosive free environment while solving waste disposal on the island. The biofilter will store the compost and odor control media for 2-3 years ...

  • Case study - Corrosion protection in a pulp and paper industry

    It is widely accepted that corrosion has an important economic impact at an industrial scale. As an example, results of a study carried out in the US showed that the total annual estimated direct cost of corrosion in the country was $276 billion, which was approximately 3.1% of the nation’s Gross Domestic Product (GDP). Thus, within the last few decades, an important effort has been made to ...

  • Humid, corrosive and malodorous waste gases - Case Study

    Example: Production of bio-ethanol Similar tasks: Dryers, Fibre board industry The production of bio-ethanol - fermentation, distillation, pelleting and drying - generates odorous and humid waste gas. Upstream lamellar demisters reduce both drop formation - causing lower VOC destruction efficiency - and solid matters. The regenerative thermal oxidiser (RTO) ...

  • Full-scale field trials identify sulfate discharge limits for municipal wastewater odor and corrosion control

    ABSTRACT The Massachusetts Water Resources Authority (MWRA) owns and operates one of the largest wastewater collection and treatment systems in the U.S. serving 45 member communities and operating the 1.2 billion gallon-per-day Deer Island Wastewater Treatment Plant in Boston Harbor. The MWRA has very few odor and corrosion problems so it was unusual when the MWRA encountered a high ...

  • Controlling corrosion in the back end of fuel cycle using nitric acid grade stainless steels

    The materials for use in nitric acid service have to be resistant to intergranular corrosion and have low general corrosion rates. End grain corrosion resulting from inclusions and segregation along dislocation bands needs to be minimised. The Nitric Acid Grade of stainless steel resistant to these corrosion problems has been indigenously produced. It is emphasised that proper fabrication ...

  • Preliminary results on modelling of primary water stress corrosion cracking at control rod drive mechanism nozzles of PWR nuclear plants

    One of the main deterioration modes that cause risks to pressurised water reactors is the Primary Water Stress Corrosion Cracking (PWSCC) at the Control Rod Drive Mechanism (CRDM) nozzles in the reactor pressure vessel. These cracks can cause accidents that reduce nuclear safety, and/or leakage of primary water. In this paper, preliminary modelling to predict these failures is proposed. The ...
