Composite materials are being widely implemented for repair scenarios within refineries – domestically and around the world. This paper will discuss concerns, considerations, and needs typically encountered when using Engineered Composite Repair systems to repair live, operating piping systems in a plant environment.
Commercial & Residential Coatings Inspection is emerging as a new market that will provide tactical and ground floor opportunities to those involved while bringing additional value to the architectural coatings industry as a whole. This presentation will provide insight to the participants on the recommended experience, skill set, and education required to set up a successful Commercial Coating inspection service or agency.
Material requirements for resistance to sulfide stress cracking (SSC) in sour refinery process environments (i.e., environments that contain wet hydrogen sulfide [H2S]). AKA "wet H2S cracking".
CORRECTION OF PUBLICATION:
In January 2016, NACE published an incorrect version of ANSI/NACE MR0103/ISO 17945:2015 (Petroleum, petrochemical and natural gas industries — Metallic materials resistant to sulfide stress cracking in corrosive petroleum refining environments). That document was incorrectly titled ANSI/NACE MR0103/ISO 17495:2016. The erroneous standard was retracted at the time and the NACE Store has the corrected version. NOTE: The contents of both versions of the standard are identical. The only discrepancies are in the title.
In early 2009 the City of Sunnyvale in Northern California put out to bid a repaint of three five‐million gallon water tank exteriors. The tanks existing coatings qualified as leadbased paint with average concentrations of 120,000ppm or 12% lead. The three tanks were successfully abrasive blasted to an SSPC SP‐10 and recoated with a zinc/acrylic system without erection of an SSPC Guide 6 Type 1A enshrouding containment. This paper tells the story of how this was done successfully using standard but not often seen work practices, even though the project was right next door to an elementary school and multi‐family residential developments and so had to perform to the strictest levels of environmental standards.
