The lat­est ad­vances in cor­ro­sion mit­i­ga­tion

DEMM Engineering & Manufacturing - - NEWS -

THE IN­DUS­TRY lead­ing Cor­ro­sion and Pre­ven­tion 2018 (C&P2018) con­fer­ence hosted by the Aus­tralasian Cor­ro­sion As­so­ci­a­tion ( ACA) is fast ap­proach­ing, re­minds the or­gan­i­sa­tion. The an­nual con­fer­ence and trade ex­hi­bi­tion brings together lead­ing re­searchers and in­dus­try prac­ti­tion­ers who com­bat cor­ro­sion on a daily ba­sis.

The ACA will wel­come del­e­gates to C&P2018 at the Ade­laide Con­ven­tion Cen­tre in South Australia 11-14 Novem­ber. Show­cas­ing the lat­est ad­vance­ments in cor­ro­sion mit­i­ga­tion, C&P2018 is the largest cor­ro­sion con­fer­ence and ex­hi­bi­tion in the South­ern Hemi­sphere.

As al­ways, the fo­cus of the ACA’s an­nual con­fer­ence and trade ex­hi­bi­tion will be the safe and ef­fec­tive man­age­ment of the con­tin­u­ing chal­lenge posed by cor­ro­sion. It has been es­ti­mated that in­dus­tries and govern­ments spend bil­lions of dol­lars ev­ery year on cor­ro­sion mit­i­ga­tion and re­pair, mak­ing it vi­tal that the lat­est tech­nolo­gies and prac­tices are ap­plied to man­ag­ing this in­sid­i­ous threat.

More than 400 del­e­gates are ex­pected to at­tend the con­fer­ence and ex­ten­sive ex­hi­bi­tion sup­ported of key in­dus­try sup­pli­ers. In­dus­try ex­perts will de­liver five ple­nary pre­sen­ta­tions – in­clud­ing the P F Thomp­son Lec­ture, which will be de­liv­ered by Pro­fes­sor Brian Kin­sella, Curtin Univer­sity, Australia. The lec­ture com­mem­o­rates the work of cor­ro­sion sci­ence pi­o­neer, P F Thomp­son, and has been de­liv­ered ev­ery year at the ACA’s an­nual con­fer­ence since 1951.

With 90 ab­stracts sub­mit­ted, the con­fer­ence is set to pro­vide the lat­est in­for­ma­tion and in­dus­try knowl­edge con­cern­ing cor­ro­sion pre­ven­tion, control and re­pair. C&P2018 will ap­peal to a broad range of in­dus­tries in­clud­ing wa­ter/waste­water, oil & gas, build­ing & con­struc­tion, trans­port in­fra­struc­ture, min­ing and as­set man­age­ment.

Top­ics cov­ered will in­clude ad­vances in as­set man­age­ment; ca­thodic pro­tec­tion; con­crete cor­ro­sion and re­pair; cor­ro­sion mech­a­nisms, high tem­per­a­ture cor­ro­sion; steel cor­ro­sion; mod­el­ling and pre­dic­tion; ma­te­ri­als se­lec­tion and de­sign, and pro­tec­tive coat­ings.

As al­ways, C&P2018 will pro­vide the premier venue for net­work­ing op­por­tu­ni­ties for del­e­gates to net­work with col­leagues and peers. So­cial func­tions in­clud­ing the Wel­come Func­tion and Ex­hi­bi­tion, ACA Awards Din­ner and Farewell Func­tion are in­cluded in your C&P2018 regis­tra­tion.
