Corrosion of metals and NACE MR0175
Manager, Design Engineering
5:00 p.m. ~ Food & Networking
6:00 p.m. ~ Presentation
Why do metals corrode and what are the chemical actions that take place?
These are the areas we will explore in this month's training as we review
materials for use in hydrogen-sulfide containing environment. In particular,
we will review the science behind corrosion in pipelines, valves, and instruments
in the oil & gas processing and petrochemical processing industries. Corrosion
by itself is a complex subject, but methods exist to minimize the effects of corrosion.
We will review the standard, ISO 15156 (or NACE MR0175), and discuss its recommendations
for low alloy steels and corrosion resistant alloys.
Eddie Chau is currently the Manager of Engineering at IMI CCI in Rancho Santa Margarita.
Prior to IMI CCI, Eddie worked at National Oilwell and Nissan. In the 23 years he's been
at IMI CCI, Eddie has worked in Design Engineering, Technical Services, Test Lab, and Sales.
He is now managing the engineering team, consisting of Oil & Gas, Power Generation, and
Nuclear engineering. His team is responsible for designing severe service valves and
actuations for a wide range of applications in Power generation, LNG, Petrochemical, and
Nuclear industries. Since the design and manufacturing are done here in Southern California,
the best part of his work is being able to see the products the team designs from concept to
testing to production. Even after being there for so many years, he still learns something
new daily. Eddie joined the ISA Orange County Chapter 2 years ago, to enrich his knowledge
on ISA standards and to improve networking. As the Standards and Practice Chair, his goal is
to update the members of the newest and latest changes on standards.
