Tnemec announced that a municipal water tank in Bossier City, La., is the winner of its 2022 Tank of the Year competition. The tank was selected based on criteria such as artistic value, the significance of the tank to the community, and challenges encountered during the project.
This article from Charles S. Brown of Greenman-Pedersen, Inc. explores key differences between shop coating and field painting, as well as the pros and cons of shop-applied coatings vs. field-applied coatings on new steel.
OCOchem was awarded a contract extension to create a chemical process to manufacture a lower-cost, non-corrosive, chlorine-free deicer to protect U.S. Army and other military equipment from damage caused by rock or road salt.
The Office of Rail and Road, the economic and safety regulator of Britain’s railway, made a series of recommendations based on a review of how the rail industry responded to a range of potential safety issues, including cracking.
A new study by Colorado State University civil engineers examines hidden costs to building foundations due to rising sea levels. They propose a method for inspection and repair to lower costs associated with deterioration from saltwater corrosion.
Pipeline current mapping methodology, which has been extensively utilized and designed through a collaboration among several gas companies, involves evaluating the coating of a pipeline from above ground. This is accomplished via the use of electromagnetic techniques.
According to the U.S. Air Force, the virtual reality simulation allows Airmen to immerse themselves in an aircraft hangar and use controllers that are modified to look and feel like a paint sprayer to paint the aircraft and various parts.
In a panel discussion, Enbridge’s Keith Parker, Corrpro’s Trey Johnston, and Elsyca’s Christophe Baete explain how a collaborative process known as the Engineered, Integrated Approach to External Corrosion Management (IECM) could change the industry.
In this work, soil corrosivity of the central desert of Iran was investigated by analyzing the physical-chemical characteristics of soils, weight loss testing, and electrochemical measurements.
The proposed multilayer coating system comprises three layers fabricated using physical vapor deposition, with a Zn–Mg layer sandwiched between two zinc layers.
Galvanizing steel with zinc increases its corrosion resistance, making it a sustainable and economical choice to use in construction and infrastructure. Researchers believe it can improve the longevity of steel.
Brad Wilder, bridge painting division manager at Intech Contracting, LLC, shares perspective on his extensive time with the company and the role of associations like AMPP in helping enable that success.
Naval Research Laboratory Key West is a state-of-the-art testing facility for atmospheric and marine corrosion. A two-phase, multi-year severity assessment was recently conducted to compare 16 sites to Key West.
Induron Protective Coatings recently teamed up with Texarkana Water Utilities to develop specifications for several of their uncoated and aging settling basins, which were in critical need of refurbishment. In this case study, learn how a ceramic epoxy liner became the solution.
Petra has developed the first non-contact, thermal-drilling method that can uniquely bore 60-in (152.4-cm) diameter micro tunnels through hard rock, making it possible to bore utility tunnels through previously impenetrable geologies.
Digital oilfield operations seek to use digital technology to replace manual processes. This can offer a myriad of benefits, including improved cathodic protection monitoring data, safety, cost efficiencies, and a significant reduction of potential negative environmental impacts.
