Corrosion Control Programme at GSFC University
Executive Development Centre at GSFC-U has successfully organized a 5-Days training program on “Corrosion Control” from August 27 to 31, 2018 for the industry professionals working in the operation, inspection and maintenance department who are dealing with the corrosion related issues at their plant.
The course equipped participants with skills critical for the evaluation of real-time Corrosion-related issues and for specifying predictive/preventive maintenance related to corrosion. This will help the organisations to reduce potential operational failures/damages leading to the forced shutdown, improve the overall availability of plant, and to devise the method to keep track of corrosion-related parameters during monitoring and inspection of equipment.
Total of 56 Executives from various industries participated in the programme. Some of the participating industries were: IOCL, OPaL, BASF, GACL, GNFC, GSFC, Transpek-Silox, GHCL, Deepak Nitrite, GSFC, Gujarat Gas Limited etc.
