CPD: Protecting Concrete Subject to Biogenic Sulphuric Acid Corrosion in Wastewater Treatment Facilities
This seminar looks at the factors to consider when protecting concrete structures subject to Biogenic Sulphuric Acid (BSA) corrosion in wastewater treatment facilities. It will help you to understand the key points to determine successful diagnosis and protection strategies for these structures, and how to identify the types of extreme conditions encountered in wastewater facilities.
The seminar also explores existing material technologies available to protect structures and how to test and measure the key properties of chemical resistance.
Additionally, you will also learn which British standards and guidelines should be used to quantify the performance of protective coating systems and membranes. This seminar covers the following topics:
- The key parameters to determine successful diagnosis and protection strategies for structures in wastewater treatment facilities
- The types of extreme conditions encountered in wastewater facilities
- How the quality and quantity of wastewater has evolved over time and the issues that have arisen from this change
- The evaluation of existing material technologies to protect structures
- How to test and measure the key properties of chemical resistance, crack bridging and resistance to Biogenic Sulfuric Acid (BSA) corrosion
- The relevant British standards and guidelines for the test methods that can be used to quantify the performance of protective coating systems and membranes
- Examples of best practice where the use of correct material specifications has ensured suitable and successful applications
