Institute of Corrosion London Branch Meeting January 2019 – Pipework Corrosion Prediction and Reality

We are pleased to announce that the speaker at the January the 10th meeting at Imperial College will be Dr Patricia Conder of Sonomatic. She will be giving a talk on internal corrosion of pipework.  as we all know this can be patchy and unpredictable on a small scale and although corrosion predictions for pipework focus on morphology, rate and likelihood, the spatial distribution is not generally considered. Inspection of pipework typically covers a small proportion of overall area, utilising manual ultrasonic inspection and radiography. The effectiveness of the inspection being determined by the “Find It First” challenge.

If and when corrosion is found, a local corrosion rate is generated for an individual location and there is a “Bottom-Up” integrity response. This talk looks at the advantages of taking a fresh look at the results of pipework inspection from a “Top-Down” viewpoint and how this can improve the understanding of corrosion manifestations, and impact on future inspection to make it more effective and efficient.

Come along to the meeting on the 10th of January doors in the Skempton Building open at 6 pm, the evening offers refreshments and great networking opportunities to members and non members alike.
