Corrosion & Corrosion Prevention Certification

5 days MCO/CICP-E
Level
Proficiency
Audience
  • Experienced engineers, managers and technical staff involved in safe operation and integrity of pressure equipment installed in refineries, chemical and petrochemical plants.
Purpose
  • This course provides a practical knowledge of pressure equipment and piping corrosion, and explains prevention strategies.
Learning Objectives
  • Upon completion of the course, the participants will be able to:
  • study steels and alloys degradation and corrosion,
  • explain the operating parameters and fluid characteristics responsible of main corrosion phenomenon,
  • identify field inspection recommendations on pressure equipment and piping to prevent corrosion failures.
Prerequisite
  • Basic knowledge in corrosion.
  • Professional experience in the refining & petrochemicals industries.
Ways and means
  • Active teaching methods are used to promote a pooling of experience, under the lead of inspection specialist.
  • Actual accidents in refineries and chemical plants are analyzed to be aware of the risks
  • Wide use of samples, videos and pictures to develop practical case studies for pressure equipment such as: piping, heat exchanger, reactor, distillation column, boiler, etc.

METALLURGY USED FOR PRESSURE EQUIPMENT & PIPING MANUFACTURING 1 day
  • Ferrous and non-ferrous material: microstructure, composition, mechanical properties.
  • Plates, forging, castings, piping, rolling, welding, post weld heat treatment.
  • Pressurized vessel manufacturing.
USUAL TYPES OF CORROSION & DETERIORATIONS 1 day
  • Different types of industrial corrosion: uniform, pitting, crevice, intergranular, stress corrosion cracking, corrosion-erosion, galvanic, selective.
  • Definitions and basic mechanism: wet corrosion, dry corrosion.
  • Metallurgical deterioration: brittle fracture, chromium precipitation, creep, fatigue.
TYPES OF CORROSION IN OIL & GAS INDUSTRIES & PETROCHEMICAL PLANTS 1.5 days
  • Each type of corrosion is studied together with possible prevention for pressurized vessel and piping already in service, or during a new plant design.
  • Specific corrosion occurring in industrial installations:
  • Hydrogen Induced Cracking, High Temperature Hydrogen attack, high temperature sulfur corrosion, oxidation, flue gas corrosion, naphthenic acid corrosion, polythionic acid corrosion, caustic soda stress cracking, Amines corrosion, CO2 corrosion
  • Specific corrosion existing in chemical industry: corrosion by mineral acids, bases, nitrates, ammonia or chlorine.
  • Many corrosion case studies observed in process industry units: identification of corrosion root cause and mitigation to apply
CORROSION PREVENTION & INSPECTION 1.5 days
  • Material selection and detailed engineering design to avoid corrosion.
  • Identification of operating windows.
  • Corrosion control by means of sampling, use of corrosion coupons and probes.
  • Cathodic protection with sacrificial anodes or imposed current.
  • Anti-corrosion coatings and cladding.
  • Non-destructive testing.
  • Risk Based Inspection.
