Corrosion Risk Assessment & Control Techniques Safety-Economy-Conservation

29th-30th October 2018 Mumbai

Course Description

Corrosion Masterclass - Corrosion Risk Assessment & Control Techniques Safety-Economy-Conservation

Corrosion Nightmare: 

Corrosion is a naturally occurring phenomenon commonly defined as the deterioration of a substance (usually a metal) or its properties because of a reaction with its environment. Corrosion is both costly and dangerous. Billions of dollars are spent annually for the replacement of corroded structures, machinery, and components. Failures due to corrosion can also result in human injury, loss of life, and collateral damage.

Key Takeaways:

Participants would become conversant with corrosion mechanism, causes and corrosion preventions. During day to day working they could predict the immature failure of equipment, piping and tanks. This would prevent the accidents and so the prevention of loss of lives, property and inventory. 

Who Should Attend: 

Individuals who are responsible for materials selection, corrosion engineering, inspection and repairs. Also suitable for Engineers, Managers, Supervisors, Inspector etc, who need a advance understanding of corrosion and its devastating potential. This course will be beneficial to those involved in corrosion monitoring and its control. The course will also benefit senior engineers who would like to increase their knowledge of materials and corrosion.
