Corrosion Mechanisms in Stainless Steels Course – BANBURY (Hosted by the BVAA)

Corrosion causes plant shutdowns, waste of valuable resources, loss or contamination of product, reduction in efficiency, costly maintenance, expensive over design and jeopardises safety. This course addresses the various corrosion mechanisms which can occur when using stainless steel materials in various industries.

Real-life case studies and solutions from our vast experience in Failure Analysis will be presented.

Course cost:
£425 + VAT for members, £475 + VAT for non members

R-Tech delivers Stainless Steel Degradation Masterclass to INEOS O&P UK’s employees

In continuation of its training program, INEOS O&P UK’s Integrity Team recently organised a masterclass on Stainless Steel Degradation. The masterclass was delivered by Sarah Bagnall of R-Tech Materials Ltd and Rob Cooper of the British Stainless Steel Association (BSSA).

Attendees (from various engineering disciplines) benefited immensely from R-Tech’s fundamental knowledge of stainless steels, their extensive compendium of failure analyses, and from the BSSA’s expertise on the subject. From the feedback obtained, it was evident that a firm understanding of integrity threats applicable to stainless steels is essential in operations, irrespective of the engineering applications they are used for. The masterclass was part of a training program to support INEOS’ commitment to integrity management, asset care and safety, particularly on assets where stainless steels are used.

The course was audited by the Institute of Corrosion’s President, Stephen Tate, who had very positive comments on the quality of the course and INEOS O&P UK’s Integrity Training Program.
