About the Webinar
Corrosion is basically a destruction or deterioration of a material because of chemical or electrochemical reaction with its environment and occurs in all industrial installations. The direct global cost of corrosion is estimated to be US$ 2.5 trillion, which is equivalent to 3.4 % of the global Gross Domestic Product (GDP) according to National Association of Corrosion Engineers (NACE).
This cost typically does not include indirect cost such as: loss in productivity due to outages, delays, failures, individual health and safety, and environmental consequences, etc. In Indian industries, the direct cost of corrosion is about US$ 26.1 billion and the indirect cost of corrosion is about US$ 39.8 billion. It was also reported that an estimated savings of the order of US$ 9.3 billion which is about 35% of direct cost of corrosion, can be achieved by adopting proper corrosion control, prevention, and management system by Indian industry.
Date: 19 Nov 2020
Time: 3 Pm to 4:15 Pm
The objective of this programme is to discuss the principles of Corrosion process and its economic significance, mechanisms and forms of different types of corrosion failures occurring in the industry, methodologies of corrosion prevention and control, corrosion monitoring/ testing and analysis and its role in increasing the reliability and life of plant & machinery, strategies for total corrosion management in industry. Finally, some important real life case studies from industry will be discussed.
