  • 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 ...

  • Polymer Concrete for Structural Restoration and Corrosion Protection of Concrete Support Columns

    Introduction A large copper mine and refinery in the western United States had a dilemma. Their cell house, which contains over 1,500 cells, each holding more than 20,000 gallons of electrolyte, had experienced severe corrosion and structural degradation of the support columns for the tanks. These columns support the cells in their solvent extraction and electrowinning process. This ...

  • Corrosion protection with synergistic LBL/Ormosil nanostructured thin films

    Stratified systems comprising an inhibitor-doped layer-by-layer (LBL) clay-polyelectrolyte overcoated with a dense organically-modified silicate (Ormosil) are investigated as corrosion protectors for aluminium. As separate coatings, neither the LBL nor Ormosil films were found to provide adequate corrosion protection of the underlying metal. A combination of the two coating methods was found to ...

  • Case study - Safety, Protection against corrosion and cabinet pressurisation in refineries

    The environment in a refinery is highly corrosive. This makes it necessary to deploy control systems not only to protect staff but also to protect the equipment controlling the processes, in order to ensure their reliability. Bioconservacion has equipment that is specially designed for the safety of staff, and for protecting against corrosion in control rooms and cabinet pressurisation equipment. ...

  • On the Ground with Diesel Corrosion - Case Study

    When the EPA revealed the results of its study in July on the increasing presence of substantial corrosion in diesel fuel tanks, it proved that the problem is much larger than anyone anticipated. The facts are staggering: 83%of the diesel tank systems exhibited moderate-to-severe corrosion. 75%of the owner/operators of those diesel tanks had no idea it was ...

  • 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) ...

  • Combating Corrosion within Power Generation Facilities

    Just about every utility facility that generates power or engages in some form of incineration must deal with corrosion issues. Since the ac Air Act of 1990, gas-scrubbing technologics have increased the im serving the assets of power plants and othe incineration infrastructure. These demands will increase further with the advent of new mercury removal requirements to be phased in during e near ...

  • The protective power of polymers

    The different engineered qualities of polymers – such as the ability to withstand high temperatures and corrosion – have given them a broad range of protective virtues. On land, at sea, and even in the sky, rubber is used in all shapes and forms to protect people. In industrial environments and infrastructures protection is needed from dangerous and demanding work environments, wear and tear, or ...

  • Combating Corrosion - Committee G01 Standards Fight Nature’s Destructive Tendencies

    The evening news may leave many of us feeling war-weary, but one ASTM International technical committee has been successful in conflict of a different sort. It’s a commonplace but epic struggle between the natural and civilized worlds — the fight against metal corrosion. For the past half-century, the weapon of choice of ASTM Committee ...

  • Hydroflo diaphragm pumps help reduce boiler corrosion and maintenance costs

    ABTCo, located in Alpena, Michigan, is a decorative wood paneling producer using three boilers to generate 7 MW of electricity – half the power needed in the plant plus steam for pulp processing. As in many boiler operations, the main enemy is corrosion, which can destroy system components and lead to boiler failure. Although internal boiler surfaces are protected by a film of magnetic ...

  • 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 ...

  • Inhibition effect of phosphorus-based chemicals on corrosion of carbon steel in secondary-treated municipal wastewater

    Secondary-treated municipal wastewater (MWW) could supply a viable alternative water resource for cooling water systems. Inorganic salts in the concentrated cooling water pose a great challenge to corrosion control chemicals. In this study, the inhibition effect of 1-hydroxy ethylidene-1,1-diphosphonic acid (HEDP), trimethylene phosphonic acid (ATMP) and 2-phosphonobutane-1,2,4-tricarboxylic ...
