WEBINAR (RECORDING): Effectiveness of Vapor Corrosion Inhibitors (VCIs) for Corrosion Control on Above-ground Storage Tank Foundations

Thu, August 16, 2018

Runtime: 60 minutes - click the registration button below to view the webinar recording.

Date: Thursday, August 16, 2018
Time: 11:00 a.m - 12:00 p.m. ET

Presenter: Dr. Pavan Shukla, Savannah River National Laboratory (formerly with Southwest Research Institute)
Project Team Leader: Len Krissa, Enbridge
PRCI Program Manager: Laurie Perry

 

PRCI recently completed a research study for mitigating soil-side corrosion on the bottom plates of aboveground petroleum storage tanks. Corrosion management is a major maintenance focus for operators of these structures.

The research project, Effectiveness of Vapor Corrosion Inhibitors (VCIs) for Corrosion Control on Aboveground Storage Tank Foundations, set out to evaluate three key questions: 1) are VCIs effective in mitigating corrosion to a level comparable to a working cathodic protection (CP) system for tank bottoms, 2) what is the best way to apply and monitor efficacy of VCIs, and, 3) are VCIs compatible with CP?

The research results indicate that when applied at vendor-recommended dosage levels, VCI’s can reduce pitting corrosion and have a positive effect on overall surface corrosion.

This webinar will present the results of this research.

Expected Benefits/Learning Outcomes:

  • How the application of VCIs, independently or in combination with cathodic protection, can be used to protect tank bottoms from external corrosion
