A flamesprayed thermoplastic coating was applied in 2000 to the sheet piles of the Delta Pier, located at Naval Submarine Base at Bangor, Washington. That coating system quickly failed. This paper discusses several rehabilitation strategies, the construction restraints, and how these divergent factors were resolved.
An advanced grade of super-austenitic stainless steel with a reduced content of nickel offers a significant economic advantage over nickel-base CRA’s. As the alloy is readily fabricated by conventional techniques, it is an excellent candidate for a variety of applications in the chemical, petrochemical, mining, oil and gas, and refining industries.
Evaluation of metal-based structures has relied on atmospheric exposure test sites to determine corrosion resistance in marine environments. This work uses surface chemistry and electrochemical techniques to interpret the chemical changes occurring on low carbon and stainless steel during atmospheric and accelerated corrosion conditions to find a correlation between its accelerated and long-term corrosion performance.
Weathering performance of 2-component polyurethane topcoats used in corrosion protection applications, e.g. bridges, marine, stadiums, etc., is discussed with emphasis on some key formulating variables. Variables such as isocyanate index and resin selection are compared in an accelerated weathering study using various polyurethane topcoats. The results are referenced to SSPC polyurethane coating specifications which are often used in the industry to define performance criteria.
Characteristics of the rapid cure non-skid coating systems for the highly stressed area, exposed deck of the marine vessels were studied in order to establish an advanced coating system with higher cracking resistance. Some previous non-skid epoxy based coating systems for marine vessels suffered premature coating failure such as crack and delamination due to the lower fracture elongation of the coating accompanied with higher external stress.
This is a print-on-demand (POD) book that will be produced just for you in 2-5 days after your order. It should arrive at your door in about one to two weeks. However, due to supply chain and logistic challenges currently affecting the industry, it may take longer. Allow three weeks for international orders.
Over the past decade, the author, Roger Francis, has looked at some very expensive corrosion failures in desalination plants. Avoiding Corrosion in Desalination Plants explains how to avoid existing corrosion problems and how to avoid them in new builds.
This book looks at corrosion problems specific to multistage flash (MSF), multiple-effect distillation (MED), and seawater reverse osmosis (SWRO) desalination plants, describing their causes, some solutions, and the relative performance of various materials. It gives advice on procuring materials for desalination plants to avoid quality problems.
