India - Negligence of corrosion by the Industries is the foremost reason for huge economic losses and deadly property damages

Corrosion is completely ignored by the Industries in India. They have misconception on finding the right technology solution. Corrosion is an environment specific issue. The damage rate will vary from place to place depending on many factors, most importantly corrosion management attitude of end-users. We do not find our industries employ corrosion management professionals to look after the various processes right from the design through to operation and maintenance of plant assets. Running an intelligent pigging or simply injecting a corrosion inhibitor alone will not find technical answers for the challenging issues. Integrated corrosion management using appropriate resources is very much essential to avoid costly failures. Industries and government agencies should open their doors for collaboration with the related resources to find cost effective corrosion control answers. Life cycle analysis has to be executed to choose the right material of construction and identify corrosion and safety vigilance required for industrial assets. We need to follow stringent norms for assets passing through public locations. Our government has to introduce corrosion prevention act and safeguard the public from these deadly damages
