Corrosion Basics for Wastewater Applications
Corrosion within the wastewater infrastructure is a significant cause of deterioration and premature failure of key wastewater assets.
As a result, wastewater infrastructure protection is of increasing importance among utilities, engineers, and practitioners due to the considerable renovation cost of deteriorated sewer networks and wastewater treatment structures.
Now more than ever, it is imperative to understand when and where this corrosion occurs and to have an awareness of the different methods to help mitigate its destructive forces.
In this webcast you will learn about
- The common forms of corrosion found in wastewater environments
- How corrosion attacks different substrates
- How protective coatings and linings can be used to help preserve and protect structures
