This project follows the completed project 356 which produced an analysis of the existing literature on this topic and guidance on an experimental plant to determine the remaining lifetime of components composed of Alloy 20Cr32Ni after aging at high process temperature. The objective of this project will be to conduct an experimental evaluation of this alloy following aging in a process environment to determine remaining utility for further plant service.

Produce a catalogue of a variety of NDE responses (ToFD, ,PAUT, TFM/FMC) with corresponding metallographic characterization of carbon steel and carbon 1/2 moly HTHA specimens. Focus will be on incipient damage and HTHA with inclusions ad weld defects and other inclusions.

This project will search for a firm that is able to non-destructively detect titanium hydriding in plant equipment. Past MTI titanium hydride projects looked at one specific method with the aim to adapt the method to identify titanium hydriding. This project has a much broader perspective aiming to test all techniques that have the potential to detect titanium hydriding. Industry information suggests that a method already exists. A few companies indicate they can non-destructively detect titanium ...
The objective of this project is to identify corrosion data for aqueous lithium halide systems useful for CPI processes that is not available in the literature. Laboratory corrosion tests will be funded to create the needed data for use by MTI members.

Full project name - "Thermal Mix Points - Screening guidelines for thermal fatigue"
PTFE bellows expansion joints are routinely used in chemical plants. Typically they do not have a metallic housing the way other PTFE equipment and piping have. PTFE is not a structural material hence a housing is needed. Failures of them resulting in safety incidents have occurred resulting in lawsuits as well as banning their use in many companies. The project objective is to collect the state of the art information and create a guideline which promotes the safe and reliable use of them.. Of ...

The objective of this project is to characterize the metallurgical condition and mechanical properties of AISI 304 stainless steel that has been aged continuously at 430 degrees C. for about 410,000 hours.
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.
Following project 307 (Literature search and review of DSS at Short Term Elevated Temperatures), and Project 364 (Duplex Stainless Steels at Elevated Temperatures), additional work is needed to evaluate the effects of short term elevated temperatures on DSS welds and HAZ. This follow up project will evaluate an array of 2205 welds after short term exposures at elevated temperatures.

Develop standard, critical and operational IOW templates/guidance for the most common chemical plants. The common chemical process IOW templates will be a MTI stand-alone product and/or serve as an addendum to API 584.
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.

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) ...
A high quality Atlas of Microstructures of Nickel Alloy 625 will be developed for all product forms and welded product for both corrosion-resisting and high temperature CPI applications.
This project is to develop an eLearning electronic course available on the internet for FRP inspection of in-service equipment. The course and its content will be owned by MTI.
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.
