Fireosaurus Rex: King of Epoxy PFP in Hot and Cold Climates

by Dr. Mike O’Donoghue; Vijay Datta, MS; Ravi Nagarajan; Bill Dempster; Robin Wade, MA; and Sherman Spear, International Paint LLC

This article explores the footprint and characteristics of a novel and solvent-free, low-temperature-cure, epoxy-polysulfide intumescent passive-fire-protection (PFP) coating. This coating is compared and contrasted with the other behemoths in the passive-fire- protection jungle.

Data-Driven Corrosion Prevention and Control Decisions for the USAF

by Eric Herzberg, LMI; Charles A. Babish, Jeffrey K. Nusser and Darryl J. Stimson, USAF

In the U.S. Air Force, the current constrained fiscal environment with dwindling resources necessitates effective performance metrics to maximize readiness and combat capability at the lowest overall maintenance cost. This article describes a method that takes a rigorous look at subsystems and maint...

In-Service Cleaning & Inspection of Storage Tanks

by Ian Daniel and Mark Stone, Sonomatic Ltd

As steps have been taken to minimize work in confined spaces by exploring zero-man entry over the lifetime of storage and process vessels, a novel robotic system has been developed that includes a range of methods for the inspection of storage tanks while in service. The authors provide an overview ...
