OUTDOOR WORKSHOPS

The workshop session will expose the technician to practical applications in underground corrosion control methods. Minimal time will be spent on theory. Topics covered during the session will stress the importance of cathodic protection, coatings and electrical isolation for corrosion control.

Outdoor Workshop Sub-Chairman: Jim Kulczyk

Class Descriptions

PIPE AND CABLE LOCATING BURIED STRUCTURES

An outdoor, "hands-on" explanation and demonstration using various pipe and buried metallic structure locators. Students will be insructed on locating techniques and have the opportunity to locate a buried pipeline.


IMPRESSED CURRENT SYSTEM HANDS-ON WORKSHOP

An outdoor, "hands-on" explanation and demonstration of basic Impressed Current CP Systems to include: rectifier theory, rectifier field measurement and associated test equipment, close interval survey, interference, and polarization.


ECDA INDIRECT INSPECTION FIELD SIMULATION ACVG-CIS-DCVG CURRENT ATTENUATION

An outdoor, "hands-on" explanation and demonstration of the field data collection methods required for integrity assessment using ECDA. Topic include: identifying an indication using ACVG-CIS-DCVG current attenuation, prioritizing indications, and direct examination of the buried structure.


INSTRUMENTATION AND MEASUREMENT FOR CATHODIC PROTECTION SYSTEMS

An outdoor, "hands-on" explanation and demonstration of the CP field data collection methods to include: soil resistivity, calibration of IR drop, pipe and cable locating, pipe inspection and repair, internal corrosion, and integrity assessment methods. Students will have the opportunity to examine various instruments during field simulation.
