  • Wallem and AO Schiffahrt uses FluidScan for Shipboard Condition Monitoring - Case study

    With depressed freight rates and overcapacity of shipping on lucrative trade routes, most shipping companies across the world are now practicing "slow steaming" operations. Operating the main "two-stroke" engines at 40-60% of their nominal output results in dramatically lower fuel costs but at high risk of cylinder cold corrosion if lubrication is not carefully managed. Adding to the complexity ...

  • The Evolution of Collector Monitoring Systems

    The vast majority of chain and flight collectors in operation throughout the world do not have any form of monitoring system installed to protect against operational failure. Traditional safety devices consist of a shear pin sprocket device, with a limit switch, designed to protect the drive system if a load or torque exceeds the working load of the  ...

  • 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 ...

  • Integrity management: how direct assessment is improving pipeline inspection

    Oil and gas pipelines have been around for well over a century, and some of the earliest constructed are still in service today.  Although early pipelines were made of wood, and in the past few decades plastics and composite materials have increased in popularity, the vast majority of pipelines in service today are constructed with steel.  Like any pipe material, steel pipe has its ...

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

    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. ...

  • Is STOP-FYRE Safe to Use? We Put It to The Test!

    We often get asked where STOP-FYRE is safe to use. It’s safe EVERYWHERE! To prove this, we sprayed STOP-FYRE on a variety of surfaces to show how it doesn’t do any damage. The non-corrosive gas element of STOP-FYRE makes it environmentally safe and won’t harm electronics, car engines, or people. In fact, we’re the ONLY fire extinguisher the ...

  • 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 ...

  • Bacterial biofilms formed in arsenic-containing water: biodeterioration of water network materials

    The immersion of any material in a water system triggers a surface microbial colonization which simultaneously influences the corrosion behavior of the substratum. The present study was focused on the As(V) influence on the biofilm formation and their consequences on the corrosion behavior of different substrata. Commercial materials used in water distribution networks: alloys based on Fe, Zn ...

  • Corrosion Control in data Centers

    EU standard 2002/95/EC, or RoHS (Restriction of the use of certain Hazardous Substances in electrical and electronic equipment), which was implemented in July 2006, restricts the use of hazardous substances in the manufacture of electrical and/or electronic equipment.   One of the banned substances is lead (Pb), which is used for soldering circuit boards and other components in hard disks, ...

  • Aminomethylphosphonic acid (AMPA) has low chronic toxicity to Daphnia magna and Pimephales promelas

    Aminomethylphosphonic acid (AMPA) is the simplest member of a class of compounds known as aminomethylenephosphonates and the only environmental metabolite measured in significant amounts during the degradation of the herbicide glyphosate in soil. However, there are additional sources of AMPA in the environment, originating from organic phosphonates which are used in water treatment to inhibit ...

  • Failure analysis showing the effect of sulphur content in stainless steel on the resistance to stress corrosion cracking in marine environments at ambient temperatures

    The risk of environmentally assisted cracking in downhole components is high due to sour conditions, i.e. the presence of hydrogen sulphide. Therefore a range of materials possessing excellent corrosion resistance are employed. However, corrosion is not only downhole related but is also a common problem on the platform deck itself due to airborne salts from ocean spray. For this reason the ...

  • FTIR gas analyzer supports carbon capture research - Case study

    The development of carbon capture and storage (CCS) technologies relies on the accurate measurement of carbon dioxide (CO2) in addition to a wide array of other gases because it is vitally important that the process does not impact upon the emissions of other greenhouse gases and potential pollutants. An advanced FTIR multiparameter gas analyser from Gasmet Technologies is therefore being ...

  • In practice: M2M technology and H2S

    Coping with H2S is a crucial topic. Besides causing unpleasant odours, hydrogen sulfide can also lead to corrosion of important components as well as damages to health. Microtronics supports experts in water and wastewater treatment in coping with H2S with various M2M products and a platform. In practice there are different forms of applications. The measurment and transmission of ...

  • Wear and corrosion preventative solutions to increase power plant efficiency

    For many years energy demand has been strongly growing and will continue. The installation of new plant capacity can take years so there is an enormous pressure on power plants to improve operational output, efficiency and availability. Component repair rather than replacement produces immediate costs savings and also reduces the use of materials, energy and transport in ...

  • Successful corrosion strategy through good practice guidance

    Corrosion is a hugely significant issue to the oil and gas industry. This is especially true in marginal development projects where tight profit margins are in play and an unplanned failure in a key component or system can rapidly lead to the premature closure of the associated well, or even field, and a reduction in returns on investment to operators and shareholders. Here, Dr Cameron Stewart, ...
