  • 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 ...

  • 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 ...

  • 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 ...

  • Wastewater Monitoring in Akouedo/Abidjan, Cote d´ Ivoire with Gaiasafe Passive Collectors (PC)

    Abstract Contamination load and distribution of contaminants is shown. Gaiasafe Passive Collectors have been used successfully to determine single compounds out of the contamination load. Furthermore the spreading and biodegradation of contaminants was monitored over a large area in Abidjan. Only a few days after the dumping the chemical waste from Probo Koala was detected in the surface ...

  • Ethylene Plant Treatment Hydrocarbon Engineering

    Ethylene is the most commonly produced petrochemical product. The bulk of annual commercial ethylene production is based on thermal cracking of hydrocarbon feedstocks with steam. Usual raw materials for pyrolysis are refinery gas, liquid petroleum gas (LPG), natural gas liquids (NGL), naphtha or gas oil. The production of ethylene is a very complex process, including cracking, cooling, ...

  • Utilization of artificial recharged effluent as makeup water for industrial cooling system: corrosion and scaling

    The secondary effluent from wastewater treatment plants was reused for industrial cooling water after pre-treatment with a laboratory-scale soil aquifer treatment (SAT) system. Up to a 95.3% removal efficiency for suspended solids (SS), 51.4% for chemical oxygen demand (COD), 32.1% for Cl− and 30.0% SO42− were observed for the recharged secondary effluent after the SAT ...
