At CORROSION we believe it is important to contribute where possible to the education and development of young people. It was therefore a pleasure to welcome the students of the Driestar Collega to CORROSION. The students of class 5 VWO received a presentation about our laboratory and its research activities. They were then given a demonstration on electrochemical testing related to corrosion and cathodic protection.
Our laboratory is an arena for applied science at CORROSION. We strive to be the bridge between academic knowledge and the superintendence of the ship. Science for the real world.
Our CORROSION Laboratory can perform complete CORROSION failure analyses including metallography, electrochemistry and microbiology analyses in a single, coherent package.
- Pipelines and storage tanks at water distribution companies (both drinking and industrial water)
- Sprinkler systems and other firefighting reservoirs
- Pipelines and storage tanks in the oil and gas industry
- Port infrastructure such as mooring poles and quay walls
- Offshore wind foundations and other offshore structures
CORROSION and fouling are widespread problems in many different industries. Both fresh and seawater environments need protection whenever a man-made structure is being exposed to the elements. Here’s a list of some structures we see affected:
At CORROSION we work hard to solve real life problems. That’s what we call applied science.
