NDE OFFERS A NEW PRESENTATION IN THE SERIES ON
ENGINEERING EXCELLENCE IN THE USE & BENEFITS OF STAINLESS STEEL

STAINLESS STEEL IN MARINE ENVIRONMENTS

Coastal corrosion is an ever-present and expensive issue requiring constant vigilance and ongoing maintenance, often resulting in failure of structures sooner rather than later.  It need not be so.

This presentation looks at corrosion in marine environments, both of structures within sea water as well as structures on land in coastal environments and in marine micro climates.

Information covers the factors which influence this corrosion as well as the measures to take to prevent or minimise marine corrosion. These factors include design; choice and combination of materials; guidelines for fabrication, welding, cutting, bending, passivation and handling; life cycle costing.

The presentation draws on examples of structures in marine environments around the world.003   001

ANOTHER IMPROVEMENT TO NDE ACCESSIBILITY

PRODUCT BARCODING

Accessibility is one of NDE’s five pillars of customer satisfaction, along with quality, integrity, fair price and service.

Accessibility impacts on many areas including choice of branch location, availability of management, minimised paperwork and a host of other streamlining elements.

As part of the continual upgrade of systems, NDE has introduced automated universal product codes  - barcoding - for all stock items. This has internal benefits for speed of stocktaking and external benefits to the customer in speed of turnaround in stock picking which reduces collection and delivery times.

Codes are installed in Cape Town, Johannesburg and Pretoria with Durban, Port Elizabeth and Germiston to follow shortly.

NDE AND LIFE CYCLE COSTING (LCC)

Life Cycle Costing (LCC), a methodology for selecting the most cost-effective design and materials, incorporates future costs for maintenance, operation, replacement and downtime - which can often exceed upfront material costs if careful assessment of expected conditions and proposed materials is not undertaken.

NDE’s technical team assists clients with this crucial step when selecting the appropriate stainless steel materials, based on engineering requirements, environmental and operating conditions as well as risk appraisal and prevailing commodity prices.
