Corrosion Analysis and Mitigation

Corrosion and corrosion mitigation are two of the most significant costs faced by industry, accounting for about $1.4 billion per year in the USA for the E&P sector, $1.7 billion for chemicals and $3.7 billion in refining and downstream.

Material selection and the influence of joining processes on material behavior are vital to cost effective construction and long-term operation of assets.

Process conditions and external environments need consideration in relation to environmentally assisted cracking, corrosion fatigue and corrosion failure modes for carbon steels and corrosion resistant alloys.

Integration of corrosion expertise with metallurgy, thermal spraying, NDE and fitness-for-purpose capabilities at I2C provides a service called upon for both failure investigation, asset integrity and R&D.
