CP Known Unknowns: The Impact of Stray Current, Tellurics

In the world of cathodic protection (CP) system management, operators of critical pipeline infrastructure have long been using systems and technologies to help establish ”known unknowns.“ Manual inspections, surveying techniques, and remote monitoring are just some of the systems that can help create a baseline of data on ”known” events and influences. However, CP is also affected by ”known unknowns.”

CUI System Design Considerations for Industrial Pipe Applications

Learn about how corrosion under insulation (CUI) is a challenge for high-temperature applications such as refineries and petrochemical facilities.

It is important to note that CUI is not an insulation problem, it is a system problem. This webcast provides insight into material selection and how the insulation system can be used to limit the potential for CUI. You will learn how a properly specified and installed insulation system will provide years of reliable performance that minimizes, if not prevents, the potential for corrosion.

Mitigating CUI and Noise in Your Processing Plants

Did you know, corrosion under insulation (CUI) can account for up to 40% of maintenance costs for pipes; and water trapped underneath and/or in the insulation not only corrodes but reduces thermal performance and efficiency?

Did you know, some process plants operate at noise levels of >100 decibels, similar to the noise from a helicopter? This can damage hearing over time, leading to fatigue, anxiety and other issues that can negatively impact safety and job performance.

Modeling Corrosion Processes and Cathodic Protection Systems

Corrosion is damaging to structures and infrastructure, costing billions of dollars every year. Understanding the corrosion process and how to mitigate it by applying the correct protection procedure is crucial for reducing corrosion damage costs. Simulation is an efficient way to investigate corrosion processes and design protection systems by visualizing and understanding the impact of your design changes.

During this webcast, we will introduce the Corrosion Module and the basis of corrosion simulations with COMSOL Multiphysics® by showing examples, including galvanic corrosion, crevice corrosion, and cathodic protection.

The Next Generation of Spray-Applied Integral Waterproofing

Reinforced concrete is one of the most utilized building materials in the world. But for concrete structures to meet or exceed their full design life, they must be properly protected from the weather and other corrosive elements — which are working every day to shorten that lifespan. And most of the waterproofing options available to architects and engineers involve materials that are specifically designed to provide only ‘short-term’ protection of 5–10 years.
