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 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.

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.
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.
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 ...

ASSET (Alloy Selection System for Elevated Temperature) is a powerful high temperature corrosion prediction program that was developed in a JIP with MTI, Shell and others with DOE funding in 2000-2005. Action is required to update the software and improve its functionalities so that it can continue to be of value to MTI members.

The objective of this project is to identify specific parameters of tube to tubesheet joining factors that have a strong influence on prevention of joint leakage.
Full project name - "Thermal Mix Points - Screening guidelines for thermal fatigue"
Provide the industry with a comprehensive, introductory and overview book on ceramics and refractories for the Chemical Process Industry (CPI). A book will be written on new design and construction, repairs and inspections for all types of ceramic materials including acid brick, carbon brick, castables, ceramic fiber, graphite, high temp refractory, rammed materials, anchor, linings and ferrule materials. Installation and Inspection will also be covered. Each topic will be given approximately ...
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.
This project is to develop the purpose, tracks/content and other details for MTI's Global Solutions Symposium.

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.
Document summarizing requirements of ASME PCC-2 including when and why additional testing would be required for specific situations
Develop document that would step through PCC-2 and provide explanation for various requirements - e.g., installation on different substrate (base material) than used in qualification testing.
Develop and conduct a program to determine how the degree of surface preparation and substrate material influences the long term performance of composite pipe repair systems
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) ...

The main objective of this project is to capture and disseminate knowledge in a way that is broadly accessible to a wide audience. A secondary objective is to utilize the podcast to further establish MTI’s brand and attract new members.
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.
PSA (pressure swing adsorption) pressure vessels are often used in the purification of hydrogen after syngas production. These vessels are manufactured from carbon steel and are welded in accordance to design codes and standards. Due to fluctuations in pressure, these vessels are usually affected by fatigue damage which can be accelerated due to exposure to hydrogen. The purpose of this project is to establish a relevant materials database for PSA steel in hydrogen.
