No excuse for cutting corners on corrosion in downstream plants
No excuse for cutting corners on corrosion in downstream plants
Corrosion is a major challenge and an essential risk to contain for any oil and gas operator. Loss of containment can mean loss of process, loss of revenue, expensive repairs and - most importantly - a potentially major safety hazard.

No matter where you look, the Department of Transportation (DOT) is scrambling to fix what is broken, the company states.
Coating methods for corrosion protection
Coating methods for corrosion protection
Corrosion is a cancer. It arrives uninvited and if left unchecked destroys the structural metals used in everything from trailers, truck bodies and transmissions, to bridges and pipelines, potentially leading to catastrophic results.
Protecting steel-reinforced concrete marine structures from corrosion
Protecting steel-reinforced concrete marine structures from corrosion
The major cause of deterioration on steel-reinforced concrete structures located in marine environments is corrosion of the reinforcing steel.
Aluminum Association: Different alloy makeup, quality work might curtail corrosion
Aluminum Association: Different alloy makeup, quality work might curtail corrosion
From time to time, you might hear a insurer or body technician argue, "There's been aluminum on cars for years and we've never had a problem with corrosion. We don't need to use separate tools or do all of those extra preparation steps."
The story of a once-unusual material with a still-unusual property
The story of a once-unusual material with a still-unusual property
In the 1980s, a new type of material was discovered. It upended the definition of a crystalline material because its atoms were arranged in a strange, non-repeating manner that was also not entirely chaotic.

As the aluminum F-150 generation enters its fourth year on the market and its two top truck competitors Silverado and 1500 join it with increased aluminum content, repairers should familiarize themselves with the types of corrosion which can occur on t...
Corrosion prevention using real-time data in oil fields
Corrosion prevention using real-time data in oil fields
In corrosion monitoring of oil and gas fields, there are many techniques that can provide data. Modern high-resolution corrosion monitors, including electrical resistance probes, are available. These instruments can be installed in key locations and co...
Corrosion protection in dry-pipe systems

Corrosion in automatic fire sprinkler systems is a concern to those who design, install, and maintain these systems. The black, foul-smelling water that is sometimes discharged from sprinkler systems during flushing and flow testing is the result of co...
Aluminum oxide coatings move like liquids to combat corrosion
Aluminum oxide coatings move like liquids to combat corrosion
Metals may seem tough, but given enough time even plain old air can be their undoing. Oxygen reacts with it to form metal oxides like rust, but now it turns out a metal oxide may come to the rescue. An MIT team has found that aluminum can be protected ...
