Microbiologically influenced corrosion: tips, myths, skills


Join the audience for a live webinar at 3 p.m. GMT/10 a.m. EST on 10 February 2021 exploring the most important theoretical and practical aspects of MIC/MID mechanisms and how they can be recognized by industry practitioners, sponsored by Hiden Analytical, in partnership with The Electrochemical Society

Microbiologically influenced corrosion (MIC) is an electrochemical form of corrosion that involves living organisms, both micro- and macro-organisms. The cost of MIC to industries is estimated to be between 15–40% of corrosion economic loss. There is currently no cost estimation for MID (microbiologically influenced deterioration) of non-metals such as concrete, composites and polymers (such as but not limited to PE) against groups of corrosion-related bacteria (CRB) and corrosion-related archaea (CRA).

MIC can be expected in various industries and assets, it can be a significant problem in pipelines (gas and oil), heat exchangers, clarifiers and thickeners, wet cooling towers, fire water rings (metal and non-metal) and hydrant parts, water and waste-water systems, offshore platforms, jetties, ships and submarines, desalination units and the like. Besides, MIC can be a hidden source of problems in routine practices such as hydrotesting and pigging.

It is a must for industries to get updated skills and knowledge about MIC, new theories currently being considered, and pros and cons of routine treatment strategies applied to control MIC. It is also necessary to briefly explain the possible adverse effects of routine practices such as applying intelligent pigging on making the asset more susceptible to MIC.

This webinar, presented by Dr Reza Javaherdashti, undertakes to deliver a comprehensive review of some of most important points regarding issues related to MIC and MID and their research and industrial practical aspects.
