Corrosion and Materials Engineering Track – PEERS 2018
This track is organized by the Corrosion & Materials Engineering (C&ME) Committee
The Committee collects and publishes information relative to selection and fabrication of metallic and non-metallic materials for construction, repair and protection of equipment that is reliable, safe and economic. The C&ME Committee is the main industry forum for discussing, investigating and publishing information papers on selecting materials of construction and protection; fabricating and inspecting; analyzing damage and failures, and protecting all manner of fixed equipment against corrosion and degradation throughout various types of pulp and paper mills.
Attendees are invited to attend the Corrosion & Materials Engineering Committee Meeting at PEERS and learn more about the activities of this committee and how to get involved in the planning of future conference programs.
The Corrosion & Materials Engineering Committee meeting will be held on Monday, October 29th from 3:30pm - 5:00pm.
The purpose of the Corrosion and Materials Engineering track at the PEERS 2018 conference is to explore and investigate corrosion and materials engineering challenges of the pulp and paper industry. Production losses resulting from reduced steam capacity or downtime in the recovery boiler are potentially far greater than the actual repair and maintenance costs incurred during the shutdown.
Presentations will cover corrosion and scale problems in power boilers, FRP corrosion understanding, and a perspective on process control equipment corrosion issues. Problem associated with metallographic indicators will also be discussed.
