Session #8 – Mechanics of Corrosion & Management Strategies


Expires Wed. May 15, 2024


Corrosion and lost water costs tax payers millions of dollars unnecessarily.  By adopting one or multiple approaches to managing corrosion, costs can be reduced by 25-35% according to AMPP (formerly NACE).  But these are not one-size-fits all approaches and a few things need to be considered when choosing your corrosion management strategy.  In this session we will briefly look at how corrosion works, the different management strategies and the risks and benefits associated with each.

At the completion of this one-hour OJT session, participants will be able to demonstrate the following:

                            • How corrosion works as an electrochemical phenomenon
                            • Understand the benefits and risks of different approaches such as cathodic protection, epoxy, stainless steel and field applied coatings
                            • Understand how each of those options work and how they are to be installed properly to work properly.
