The Chairman (Robin Oakley) opened the meeting.
1.1 Computer modelling of cathodic protection, applications on a harbour integrity design, Ernesto Manuel Santana-Diaz, DNV and John Baynham, CM BEASY
The Chairman announced that one of the days
speakers, Chris Fowler (Bodycote), had recently been chosen by NACE
International as its Vice-President, and would also become the President the
following year. Congratulations
were offered on this prestigious role.
2.2 The MCF had recently taken Membership of the World Corrosion Organisation, and was represented at the WCO General Assembly Meeting held at the NACE 2008 conference in New Orleans by Phil Dent (Bodycote; MCF Vice Chairman).
#1 : To Raise Public Awareness of Corrosion and Corrosion Control (Presented by Wayne Burns (ACA))
#2 : To Identify World Best Practises in Corrosion Management (Presented by Kewei Gao (CSCP))
#3 : To Facilitate the Provision of Corrosion Control Expertise to Governments, Industries and Communities (Presented by Paul McIntyre (EFC))
#4 : To Normalise Corrosion Related Standards Worldwide (Presented by David Webster (NACE))
· The one aim of the organisation is to gain status as a non-governmental organisation (NGO) of the United Nations. The WCO has already gained charitable status which is the 1st step in gaining UN NGO status.
information on the WCO activities can be obtained from Phil Dent (email@example.com)
or by looking at the WCO website (www.corrosion.org)
2.3 Carol Powell (Copper Development Association) made an
announcement to the meeting that there would be a European Federation of
Corrosion Marine Workshop held the morning of the 11th September at Eurocorr
2008 in Edinburgh. It will be called Optimising the Performance of Copper base
Alloys in Sea Water Piping Systems.
It has long been recognised that copper alloys are sensitive to corrosion in stagnant and polluted waters and there is currently significant work underway particularly with copper nickels in naval applications to more fully explain and provide practical means of prevention. This has very beneficial implications to the marine industry in general.
The aim of the meeting is to look at the current status of copper alloy applications and identify specific areas where more understanding is required such that any future research needs can be identified and prioritised.
A programme of presentations will soon be available.
2.4 Charlie Barraclough (Commtech Associates) had sent in a question: Had anyone knowledge of problems with hydrogen embrittlement (HE) of Thermally Sprayed Aluminium (TSA) Coatings on duplex stainless steels.
(QinetiQ) said that this should not be a problem provided the duplex is not
subjected to stresses in excess of the proof stress (i.e. to plastic strains).
Chris Googan (Anti Corrosion Engineering) mentioned that a group
sponsored project is currently being run on this topic and the results will be
published in due course. Ernesto
Santana-Diaz (DNV) said that the DNV RP F112 relating to hydrogen induced stress
cracking (HISC) may provide some guidance on the susceptibility of duplex
stainless steels to HISC.
2.5 Robin Oakley (QinetiQ) asked if anyone had knowledge of
problems with polymers becoming chemically eroded adjacent to anode sites
on cp systems and is this due to chlorine gas evolution at the anode?
Barry Torrance (Aish
Technologies Ltd) felt this would be due to chlorine gas evolution at the anode.
Chris Googan (Anti Corrosion Engineering) said that Cl / Fl resistant
polymers will need to be selected. Polyethylene will degrade and also rubbers
will be affected, since Cl attacks the C-C double bonds.
At this point there was a break for lunch
Torrance (Aish Technologies Ltd) asked if anyone had a spent sacrificial
anode that they could lend or give to him.
Torrance (Aish Technologies Ltd) advised that Aish was presently carrying out
some experimental work with impressed current anodes running at
near-sacrificial voltages; any discussion on applications would be welcome.
3.1 Keynote 1: Stress Corrosion Behaviour of Nickel Aluminium Bronzes in Sea Water, Jean-Loup Heuzι, DGA
3.2 Factors Informing the Hydrogen Induced Damage to Steels in Upstream Service', Frank Dean, Ion Science
3.3 Keynote 2: Design and Fabrication Experiences with Titanium in Offshore Platforms, Torfinn Havn, Ztrong AS, Norway
3.4 Oil & Gas Related Corrosion, Chris Fowler, Bodycote Testing
Chairman closed the meeting at approx. 4:40 pm
meeting was followed by a meeting of ICorr, Aberdeen branch:-
Inspection and Corrosion Monitoring of Offshore
Pipelines, Brian Jones, Advantica Ltd
