ICORR North East – Corrosion Under Insulation – Review of Coatings Test Standards NACE TG516 and ISO 19277

Image Source: https://www.eddyfi.com/oil-gas/corrosion-under-insulation-plague-what-you-need-to-know/

Welcome and please join us for a review of test methods NACE TG516 and ISO 19277.

Please follow this LINK to register for free tickets.

The meeting will take place at the Rosen Group starting at 6pm for networking followed by a presentation / discussion at 6.30pm delivered by Neil Wilds, a thought leader in coatings for corrosion under insulation.

Neil has 32yrs experience in Coatings Industry working on high solids epoxy’s / testing and CUI/Insulation Coatings. Currently Technical Marketing Manager for Sherwin Williams and a committee member on TG516 Standard Practice for Evaluating Protective Coatings for Use Under Insulation.

Presentation Overview:

There has been many iterations of test methods from coatings companies over the last 10-15 yrs looking at prequalification of CUI coatings. To a large extent this has not been standardised and accepted by the major Oil & Gas end users. Therefore over the last 3-4 years two CUI test method/prequalification standards have been worked on to solve this issue. This presentation will go through these tests methods and will hopefully

Reducing the Impact of Corrosion in Construction via Lean based Process Innovation

Event Description

Recent infrastructure failures such as Genoa Bridge collapse, which killed 43 people and caused major disruption, highlights the need for effective corrosion monitoring and protection and to embrace good corrosion maintenance processes as an integral part of asset construction and maintenance. Corrosion protection is valuable in preventing unplanned production stoppages or safety risks as a result of asset performance reduction. Assets such as bridges, platforms and critical physical infrastructure require corrosion protection and monitoring as an integral part of the maintenance programme throughout the life of the asset.

University of Salford will be hosting this event at its Media City Campus. Events bring together experts in Lean Construction, Process Innovation and Corrosion specialists. The key focus is to raise awareness among Supply Chain contractors of the importance Corrosion Protection for the whole life cost of assets, as well as develop an understanding about their requirements, with a view to reduce defects and reworks, which often results in delays, cost overruns and increased  H&S risks for the project. Panel discussion and group exercises will focus on use of innovative strategies to involve specialist sub-contractors’ expertise in early design and planning stages, using lean principles as a framework to integrate entire supply chain.

Date:                 Thursday 8th Nov, 2018

Time:                 9:30am – 4:00pm 

Location:          Room 0.11 Media City Campus (Next to BBC studios), Salford Quays, University of Salford, Salford M50 2HE,
