Corrosion management (CM) is a rather new concept and expertise. Its origins go back to early 2000's. The CM concept emerged from the UK's offshore oil and gas industry; from where the author also started his professional career.
Due to this newness and a vast multitude of application benefits, there has been a constant growth in demands for the provision of CM awareness, training, expertise and consultancy year after year.
The author has so far compiled a total of four CM books and this one is the last in the series. It is also the most comprehensive among the four books, with a greater emphasis and focus on CM field implementation.
Therefore, if one intends to implement CM across their asset(s), then this book could provide them with the required advice, instructions and guidelines on proper CM field implementation for both hydrocarbon and non-hydrocarbon industries.
The book covers subjects from how to define the scope of work to report writing and communicating the latest integrity findings.
It is written in a simple and jargon-free language and intended for various disciplines including: corrosion and integrity engineers, inspection engineers, pipeline engineers, process engineers, maintenance engineers and asset integrity managers.
Over the past decade, the author, Roger Francis, has looked at some very expensive corrosion failures in desalination plants. Avoiding Corrosion in Desalination Plants tells the reader how to avoid existing corrosion problems and how to avoid them in new builds.
This book looks at corrosion problems specific to multistage flash (MSF), multiple-effect distillation (MED), and seawater reverse osmosis (SWRO) desalination plants, describing their causes, some solutions, and the relative performance of various materials. It gives advice on procuring materials for desalination plants to avoid quality problems.

NEW EDITION! This book provides an extensive update on the second edition with general coverage of the wide field of corrosion control. It is designed to help readers being initiated into corrosion work and presents each corrosion process or control procedure in the most basic terms. Since the first edition was published in 1970, there have been major advances and changes in the technologies used to combat corrosion damage. Third Edition. NACE, 2018.
The “Field Guide for Managing Iron Sulfide (Black Powder) within Pipelines or Processing Equipment” offers practical guidance for corrosion control and operations personnel in managing black powder within their pipeline systems or processing equipment. It starts with a discussion of what is black powder and identifies health and safety considerations associated with H2S and the presence of black powder, identifying why there may be a concern. The Field Guide presents field and laboratory tests typically used to identify the presence of iron sulfide, and then discusses maintenance pigging and/or chemical treatments for removing such particulates. Several case studies are also presented.

There are an estimated 900,000 electric utility steel transmission and distribution structures in North America alone. The majority of these structures were installed between 1950 and 1990. These structures are now an average of about 45 years of age. The age of these structures dictates an inspection and assessment procedure to determine the level of corrosion affecting the above-grade atmospherically exposed portions of this important segment of our infrastructure.
Prior to the publication of this standard, no industry practice existed to help electric utilities determine a prioritized listing of structures to be inspected or that described an inspection and assessment procedure to evaluate above-grade atmospheric corrosion problems.
NEW EDITION!! For nearly 50 years Control of Pipeline Corrosion, written by A.W. Peabody, has been the most trusted resource in the field of pipeline corrosion. Now completely revised and updated, the third edition of this classic reference continues the tradition of excellence by providing the most thorough and authoritative coverage of the prevention and control of pipeline corrosion, and now includes a chapter on AC interference.
Peabody's Control of Pipeline Corrosion, Third Edition, edited by Ronald Bianchetti, blends traditional corrosion engineering practices with modern technologies to make this the single source for corrosion control. Chapters have updated information and graphics to expand on the user-friendly nature of the original book.
This book provides the reader with a history of generic pipeline coating types, technical information about testing, application and use. There is very practical information about selection and evaluation methods for each type of coating system to help those who design pipeline systems. There is also discussion of how coatings work with cathodic protection, cathodic protection shielding by coatings and other related issues with the various coating systems related to CP.

New NACE TEST METHOD! The purpose of this NACE International standard test method is to specify test methods and test conditions used to evaluate thermal properties, insulation values, and performance/integrity before and after thermal aging of insulative coatings. Testing for corrosion resistance is not included in this test method.
New in 2020! This standard presents accepted methods and practices regarding the use of cathodic protection (CP) for the control of external corrosion on buried or submerged carbon steel, stainless steel, gray cast iron, ductile cast iron, copper, and aluminum piping systems at nuclear power plants. This standard may be useful at facilities other than nuclear power plants that contain complex networks of buried or submerged piping, which may be composed of more than one material and may or may not be grounded.
NEW EDITION! This book presents new developments that have affected the commercial use of chemicals and devices to clean industrial equipment. This second edition will emphasize the mechanisms of important cleaning processes and solvents and will give an overview of the science and technology of the formation and removal of fouling deposits in the industrial equipment environment. It is directed to a general technically trained audience, with emphasis placed on the basic chemical and mechanical principles of industrial cleaning (IC). All of the chapters have been updated and significant new information on the dissolution of inorganic solids is included.
