Minutes of the General Meeting held at The
National Motorcycle Museum, Birmingham,
on Wednesday, 5th July 2017.
(Phil Dent) opened the meeting.
PRESENTATIONS (part 1):
1.1 The Effect of Chlorine Dioxide on Corrosion in Seawater', Roger Francis, RF Materials
Direct Observation of Hydrogen Embrittlement in a Duplex Stainless Steel 2205 Tungsten Inert Gas (TIG) Weld, Pierfranco Reccagni, University of Manchester
1. A question was raised by Ian Perryman as to the Effect of TIG welded 304L stainless steel
heat tint colours on corrosion resistance in Mono Ethanol Amine H2N-CH2CH2OH. The debate concluded that the heat tint would cause no problem as
the ethanol amine would not pose a risk to the stainless steel since it contained no electrolyte such as water. Any weld dressing
or pickling would simple serve cosmetic purposes and would be unnecessary
2. A new Edition of Galvanic Corrosion A Practical Guide for Engineers has been produced by NACE by Roger Francis. Covers the basics of galvanic corrosion and galvanic problems in seawater, oil and gas, chemicals etc. Extensive discussion on methods of prevention. New in the latest edition is:
a. Data on other oilfield environments, such as injection waters, column pipes and lift pumps and new material combinations.
b. Additional data under atmospheric conditions.
c. New data in caustic soda.
Available from NACE, with the usual 25% discount for NACE members. Roger is also in negotiations with NACE regarding the costs of postage for hard copies of the book to members outside of the USA. However, eBooks are available for download
3. Clive Tuck presented the meeting with a thank you card and message from Jean Tuck (ex Secretariat) for the kind gift that was given to her upon her retirement from the MCF. The card was printed with a watercolour, painted by Jean herself, of the Staffordshire Moorlands. The thank you message read:
Dear MCF Members
Thank you so much for the card and the generous cheque presented at the AGM for my retirement. I have bought an excellent pocket camera so as to be sure to have it with me when out walking the dogs, or holidaying with the family.
It will also remind me of you all, and the very pleasant and interesting years spent with the Marine Corrosion Forum.
Best wishes, Jean
