Jamshedpur: Corrosion is one of the prime reasons causing material failures in industrial sectors such as energy, manufacturing, transportation, infrastructure where the plant machineries are made out of metals and alloys.
The financial loss due to corrosion failures is estimated as 300 billion dollar per annum in India. To reduce this loss, it is therefore mandatory to gain knowledge and experience in how to monitor and prevent corrosion in Industrial environment.
During 24-27 October 2017, the professional training programme on Monitoring and Prevention of Industrial Corrosion (MPiC 2017) will address various aspects of metallurgical corrosion investigations and metallurgical failures due to corrosion.
This exclusive training programme is designed essentially for professionals working in the Industry which is being organized by Research Planning & Business Division (RPBD) along with Material Engineering(MTE) Division of CSIR-NML.
The programme will be inaugurated on 24th October 2017 by Dr. I.Chattoraj, Director of CSIR-NML. The venue of the inaugural Programme will be the Lecture Hall.
Delegates from organizations such as Tata Steel, Quaker Chemical, GEC College, Reliance Industries, PFIZER, BHEL, CESE and BPCL are attending MPiC 2017.
The objectives of the training programmes are- to enhance technical knowledge in monitoring and prevention of industrial corrosion, to offer hands-on training on state-of-the-art equipment facility and to develop interaction between R&D laboratory, industry and academic institutions.
Lectures on Corrosion fundamentals, Corrosion evaluation technique, Corrosion failure investigation, Corrosion prevention techniques will be delivered by scientists of MTE division of CSIR-NML in addition to hands-on training on various equipment facilities such as Corrosion rate measurement, Electrochemical impedance and corrosion resistance, Salt spray, humidity, UV exposure and NDT methods.
On 27th October 2017 Valedictory function will be held and the participants will be given certificates of participation. To promote technopreneurship focusing on business ideas on technologies for corrosion prevention, on 27th October 2017, a pitching session will be held after 4:30 p.m. which is a regular event of CSIR-NML Technology Business Innovation Centre (TBiC)
