Save the Date: Corrosion Solutions


Engineered Corrosion Solutions, in association with Chicago Corrosion Group LLC, has announced its upcoming Engineered Corrosion Solutions 2016 conference, to be held May 5, 2016, in Elk Grove Village, IL.

A one-day event, ECS2016 is devoted exclusively to all issues pertaining to corrosion from an owner-centric perspective.

Content is aimed at those working in a wide variety of industries, including municipalities, waste water, water treatment, petrochemical, commercial management, chemical processing, power generation, nuclear power, food and agriculture, pharmaceutical, parks, commercial entities, and amusement parks.

Continuing Education Units (CEUs) will be available to attendees from some of the presenters.

Technical Topics

The theme of next year’s ECS is “Reliability.” Speakers will present on a variety of topics, such as:

  • Bridges and Steel Structures—including state-of-the-art corrosion mitigation practices and the use of metallizing and galvanizing for those structures;
  • Tank Maintenance—including corrosion mitigation practices for internal lining;
  • Water and Waste Water—including challenges associated with H2S in waste water treatment systems;
  • Coating Concrete Water Tanks; and
  • Corrosion Mitigation at Refineries.

In addition to lectures, exhibitors will be on hand to share their expertise, as well as to discuss products and services.

Additional Information

“Clearly the selection of the presenters was aimed at providing the attendee with practical, technical and fundamental information pertinent to corrosion,” Dr. Mark Kolody, from the NASA Corrosion Technology Laboratory at Kennedy Space Center, said of the 2015 show.

“Overall, the conference provided a wealth of information that is directed not only toward the technical personnel, but also managers and business owners,” he added.

The third annual ECS conference will take place at the Holiday Inn Elk Grove from 8:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.
