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.
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.
