Corrosion & Corrosion Prevention CertificationMCO/CICP-E

Who should attend?

  • This course provides a practical knowledge of pressure equipment and piping corrosion, and explains prevention strategies.
Audience :
  • Experienced engineers, managers and technical staff involved in safe operation and integrity of pressure equipment installed in refineries, chemical and petrochemical plants.

Level : Proficiency

Course Content

  • METALLURGY USED FOR PRESSURE EQUIPMENT & PIPING MANUFACTURING

      • Ferrous and non-ferrous material: microstructure, composition, mechanical properties.
      • Plates, forging, castings, piping, rolling, welding, post weld heat treatment.
      • Pressure equipment manufacturing.
  • USUAL TYPES OF CORROSION & DETERIORATIONS

      • 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

      • 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

      • 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.
      • Anticorrosion coatings and cladding.
      • Non-destructive testing.
      • Risk Based Inspection.

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.

Ways & 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.
