The Chairman (Clive Tuck) opened the meeting.
Chairman also gave a brief update on the progress of the collaborative research
project. It was planned that a paper would be presented at a
conference in Canada.
1.2 The Secretariat presented the list and topics of forthcoming meetings. Any member wishing to make a presentation was again advised to volunteer soon, while the programme was being finalised.
A brief statement on the MCF accounts was given.
Click for abstracts.
2.1 Guided Wave Technology at TWI: Present and Future Capabilities, Graham Edwards (TWI)
behaviour of carbon steel, low alloy steel and CRAs in partially deaerated
seawater and comingled produced water, M. J. Schofield, CAPCIS Ltd
Robin Oakley (QinetiQ) asked what was known about mercury
embrittlement of high strength stainless steels.
He needed to know about mercury reaction with CRAs and stainless steels
at ambient temperatures, at the surface, and by immersion.
It was agreed that some work exists for 316.
There was also work done on 13Cr, downhole at elevated temperatures and
with mercury contamination.
2. Roger Francis (Weir) asked if anyone knew of a laboratory offering test equipment which could test under different flow conditions and velocities. He had a programme of work on cavitation thresholds. There were disagreements about values which had been cited and he wanted to establish the facts. It would be expensive to set up their own equipment so he wanted to know of suitable corrosion test laboratories. The SINTEF laboratory in Norway was suggested as a possible place to contact.
4.1 X-ray Tomography Techniques for Localised Corrosion and Environmentally Assisted Cracking Studies, Brian Connolly (Birmingham University)
4.2 Vistar - The super austenite corrosion solution, Trevor Machin (Vistar Stainless Limited)
The Chairman closed
the meeting at approx. 3:30 pm
