Gritco has recently announced new additions to their blast machine family – their smallest and largest blasting pots, the MiniPro-Basic and Bulk Series.
According to the company, the MiniPro-Basic, is a compact blasting machine pot, but despite its small dimensions it is equipped with many of their high-quality advantages offering a mature blasting solution for mostly “basic” but also sensitive blasting work. For high production there is the Bulk Series with a volume capability of 500 litres, an adequate filling system and multiple outlets which can be used by two or three blasters or in a (semi) automatic blasting system.

Winn & Coales (Denso) Ltd have introduced a new product to the Denso product line, Denso Bore-Wrap™, pipeline coating.
According to the company, Denso Bore-Wrap is an abrasion resistant Outerwrap (ARO) which has outstanding performance against impact, gouge, abrasion, and fracture. It creates a superior sacrificial outer laminate layer, which protects both pre-approved field joint coatings and mainline coatings (such as, liquid epoxy coatings, heat shrink sleeves, 3LPE, 3LPP and FBE coatings) from damage during pipeline installations, in difficult terrain or by means of trenchless installation methods, such as directional drilling, HDD or boring.
Denso Bore-Wrap is easily applied in the field; there is no mixing required, it is simply wrapped over the existing pipeline coating and cured with water. Due to its flexibility and exceptional level of mechanical protection, it minimises the need for costly spot repairs or re-pulling pipe from damage, concluded the company.
A research project currently underway relating to the science community’s views on the Science Council and registration with the organisation. The Science Council has commissioned York Consulting (YCL), an independent socio-economic research consultancy, to undertake the research.
The Science Council is keen to hear from all members of the science community; those who are Science Council registrants and those who are not. As such, we would appreciate your support in taking part in a short survey. The survey covers questions on your career history and interest and level of engagement with the Science Council and knowledge and perceptions of its work.
The survey should take approximately 15 minutes to complete. Please submit responses by 21st May.
Your contribution will be extremely valuable in helping us understand views on the Science Council, its purpose, aims and values and role in promoting and supporting the science profession. Your feedback will be paramount in helping the Science Council understand what the science community would like to see in terms of its services, activities and the way it communicates and engages with the science community moving forward.
ICorr are jointly promoting with EFC the following Event, as a follow-up to the April EFC Corrosion Awareness Day.
ICorr/EFC/CR are focusing on a new generation of young engineers who will be at the heart of combatting corrosion challenges of the future and playing an active role for a safer and more sustainable world.
The CR CUI Over Coffee session on Friday 21 May at 11:00 GMT will explore the Life of a Young Corrosion Engineer with guest speakers: Marta Mohedano Sanchez, President of the Young EFC – European Federation of Corrosion Board and Bill Hedges, President INSTITUTE OF CORROSION and former Chief Engineer at BP.
CorrosionRADAR’s Young Corrosion Engineer Claudia Martínez Piñón, (a recent Graduate of the ICorr Young Engineer programme) plus CR CEO Dr. Chiraz Ennaceur will talk about the day-to-day realities of dealing with corrosion, what it is like for young people joining our community, their life and opportunities.
The panel will also consider the changing landscape for corrosion management.
This session is ideal for those who would like to learn more – young engineers, academics, entrepreneurs and leading operator experienced professionals driving change.
