Field-applied liquid epoxy coatings have moved from the shadows to become one of the most important methods of pipeline corrosion protection. This article presents the science behind this essential process for protecting underground pipelines from corrosion.
The protection of automatic marine lubrication systems with stainless steel (SS) metering valves could offer significant advantages over a prior solution of encapsulating valves in epoxy.
The country’s existing pipeline infrastructure was built with materials that are no longer used today, although they were state-of-the-art at the time. Coating materials, for example, have significantly improved over those used decades ago.
New regulations for hazardous liquid pipelines are part of a series of changes from PHMSA aimed at improving pipeline safety across the United States.
Residual soluble salts are contaminants on a substrate surface that affect coating performance. The primary soluble salts that the coatings industry must manage are in the form of chlorides, sulfates, and nitrates.
The U.S. Army wants to use biodegradable ammunition during training exercises, due in large part to how existing bullets can corrode and pollute the soil and water.
Strategic planning is a process that provides a roadmap for taking our association from a well-defined present state, to a compelling and significantly different future state.
