Using Knovel Corrosion to solve valve failure and identify solutions
Veolia Water Technologies & Solutions leverages a comprehensive set of chemical, equipment and digital enabled services and products to solve the toughest water, wastewater and process challenges around the globe. When leaks were detected in a unique type of check valve – exposing it to a caustic chemical mixture – the team used Knovel Corrosion to uncover the problem and quickly identify solutions. This significantly reduced downtime and provided a clear, authoritative direction for the Veolia team to take.
“Use of the internet typically offers fewer specifics for the client. This means we would not be able to provide a clear-cut direction,” said Mel Esmacher, P.E., senior materials and metallurgical engineer at Veolia’s R&D and Customer Analytical Services Laboratory. “Knovel Corrosion, on the other hand, gives targeted literature references to support a probable cause of failure, which sets the stage for engineers to make correct decisions and advise the client on better material for applications.”Learn more about Veolia’s Knovel Corrosion success story.(opens in new tab/window)
