Understanding and Controlling Corrosion – SOLD OUT

January 10 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

Event Format: Webinar – Microsoft Teams

Hosting Organization: APEGS – A Member-Led Webinar Series Presentation

Event Summary: Rust sometimes seems unstoppable. Transmission towers, bridges, pipelines, tanks, water lines, sewer lines: they all corrode. A clear understanding of the corrosion mechanisms and the appropriate use of corrosion mitigation tools and techniques can reduce the risk to people, the environment, and the cost of corrosion – estimated at 3% of annual GDP in Canada.

This presentation will discuss the importance of corrosion control and introduce the basics of corrosion reactions. The role of coatings will be discussed, as well as electrochemical corrosion control techniques: cathodic protection and anodic protection. Examples of corrosion challenges and solutions will be drawn from and applied to various industries including transportation (bridges, parking garages), mining (wells, tanks, infrastructure), communication (cell towers, grounding), municipal (water, wastewater) and energy (transmission towers, pipelines).
