Basics of Pipe Corrosion

 (MWWA Course: MWWA 20-010)

A balanced introduction to corrosive environments typically encountered by buried pipelines will give attendees all the information they need to make an informed decision on utilizing available pipeline protection mechanisms, if needed. The decision-making process is guided by the Design Decision Model™ that was developed through decades of research and experience by DIPRA and Corrpro, two leading authorities on corrosion prevention across our industry. Internal corrosion issues with DI pipe are a far different ball game than external corrosion.  Internal corrosion can, and often is, simply the result of an aggressive fluid being transported within the pipeline. 

 Learning Objectives:

  • Understand the mechanisms of corrosion – four things that must be present
  • Understand the types of corrosion – galvanic and more, and oxidation vs. corrosion – there is a difference
  • Learn from examining real-life corrosion failures
  • Learn about corrosion protection mechanisms
  • Learn common potential internal corrosion mechanisms -bacterial and/or chemical
  • Understand tuberculation and the role cement mortar linings play in preventing it
  • How to determine if a special lining is needed

 This course is approved for 2 TCHs (Training Contact Hours) for Massachusetts water and RI Drinking Water Operators. It will be taught using the Zoom platform. Participants will need to have a reliable highspeed internet connection and  computer device with both video and audio capability. Please review our Student Expectations for Attending Virtual Training at www.masswaterworks.org/education.
