Nickel Institute aids confident use of stainless steel in Refining and Petrochemical industries

The Nickel Institute gave a series of four educational workshops on Stainless Steels and Nickel Alloys for the Refining and Petrochemical industries in Kuala Lumpur and Miri, Malaysia; in Singapore and in Makassar, Indonesia during the last week of January and first week of February. They were held in cooperation with the Singapore Welding Society (SWS), the Malaysian Iron and Steel Industry Federation (MISIF), and the Indonesian Welding Association, as well as other partners. The one-day workshops, given by Gary Coates, attracted some 50 attendees in KL, Miri and Singapore, and 137 attendees in Makassar. In the latter workshop, there were 30 participants from various industries on the island, with the remaining being faculty and students from the engineering department of the State Polytechnic of Ujung Pandang where the workshop was held. The workshops included basic information on stainless steels and nickel alloys, including how to select materials for corrosion and high temperature services, welding and fabrication, and specific applications in refineries and petrochemical plants. There were many practical questions at all the workshops, including a number of follow-up questions afterwards by e-mail related to justifying the use of nickel-containing materials.
