MTI project 269-Corrosion Data of the Most Commonly Used Corrosion Resistant Nickel Alloys was successfully completed in December 2017. That MTI project was the first joint effort to collect, analyze, and publish corrosion data of nickel alloys from various major global suppliers. Five typical nickel alloys were selected for corrosion data collection, including Alloy C276, Alloy 22, Alloy 625, Alloy 825, and Alloy 600. The contractor of the project was Industrial Technology Research Institute (ITRI) of Taiwan. After carefully analyzing tens of thousands of test data voluntarily provided by the major suppliers, ITRI team carried out lab corrosion rate study then provided a statistically analyzed corrosion rate and standard deviation for each selected alloy. A final report was published in both English and Chinese. This publication has been approved by many MTI members to be extremely useful, especially when they are doing research on these alloys, selecting these alloy for certain applications, or trying to find a suitable supplier for their new project. Project 367 is phase II of project 269. The purpose of this new project is to continue the successful effort and collect corrosion data for more nickel alloys of interest by the industry. The team will define the scope of the study candidates, assemble subject experts from member communities, collecting existing data and testing methods from industry then select qualified contractor to carry out the study.
New bio-oil products are now being produced commercially. The processes for producing bio oil can be corrosive, and alloy corrosion data for the new bio oil fuels is not available. There is interest in this topic and a new potential project was established to formulate a project on this topic.

The purpose of this project is to create an in-person short course with an introduction to process industries corrosion. The goal of the course is aimed at introducing new engineers and other technical personal to corrosion, common types of process equipment, materials of construction, fabrication techniques, and codes and standards. It is meant to give the students basic information on corrosion and how it is prevented in the chemical process industry to augment on-the-job training as they start their careers. A secondary goal is to create the technical material that will be used to create an online training course on the same topics. The development of the online course will be developed as a subsequent MTI project.

The scope of this project is to perform a study in order to include in the simulation model developed in the P305: - Discrimination of the HTHA damages with inclusions by inserting them as a specific modeled item. - Validation of the model to samples with actual HTHA damage in the welded area.

The objective of this project is to validate the robustness of this new repair technique for GLSE. Ideally the testing will simulate all known failure mechanisms for GLSE that could potentially apply to these patches. This project would perform mechanical and corrosion testing on glass lining bonded to steel. Testing could include: adhesion; strain line; spark; impact (external); impact (internal); abrasion; thermal; compressive; flexure; tensile; chemical; etc.
The objective of this project is to develop a document that will provide guidance on managing critical plant concrete and steel structures in a mechanical integrity program.
Library of materials pertaining to marketing and membership efforts including newsletters, annual reports, videos, etc.
The AsiaTAC PDC has initiated a renewed effort to jump start the Regional effort in project development. During the 2017 annual meeting, three PDCs were formed:•Corrosion Mitigation and Prevention – Chaired by Henry Ye/Chemours•NDT & Inspection – Chaired by Alex Chen/Dow•Failure Analysis – Chaired by TP Cheng/ITRIFollowing a well participated brain storming session, many project ideas were generated. The Regional Leadership team is fully committed to the success of the PDC project and expects many good projects will be developed under the new PDC leadership.
The Ceramics PDC is designed to discuss, explore and learn about new developments in the field of Ceramics. Member needs regarding the design, selection, inspection and repair of refractories, ceramics and brick lined equipment are identified and new projects are developed to meet those needs.

The PDC for Integrity and Condition Assessment (ICA) looks for technologies to inspect and test operating equipment, for the purpose of determining its suitability for continued operation. The ICA PDC seeks to identify new technologies for development, technologies that can be adapted from other industries, and technologies that are commercially available but are not widely used in the process industries.
The Knowledge Management PDC seeks out data and information within MTI and the Chemical Processing Industry and effectively disseminates this information to the members. This PDC does not create new information. Its goal is to make better use of available information.
The Metals PDC seeks to identify areas where metals performance, application or fabrication information is lacking or requires further development for use in the CPI. The Metals PDC also desires to highlight current information on new alloy developments, applications that can be adapted from other industries, or other issues in the CPI that may be solved by the proper use of metallic materials.
