CERATECH, Inc. Launches Webinars About Stopping Corrosion in Petrochemical Plants -- Specifically Designed for Plant and Maintenance Engineers

More Than 10 Petrochemical Companies in Texas and Louisiana Are Already Using CERATECH's New Corrosion Resistant Concrete

ALEXANDRIA, VA--(Marketwire - Jun 23, 2011) - CERATECH, Inc. will be presenting a webinar (no fee -- sponsored event) discussing the most effective new products for stopping the deterioration of concrete in severe petrochemical environments. The free webinar will be offered three times to accommodate busy schedules: Tuesday, July 12th at 10:00AM, Central Daylight Savings Time (11:00 EDT), and Wednesday, July 13th at 7:00AM, CDT (8:00AM EDT), and at 3:00PM, CDT (4:00PM, EDT).

The webinar is designed for participants interested in learning about a cost effective new concrete technology that can dramatically reduce maintenance costs and actually extend the life of their plant's concrete infrastructure.

Petrochemical companies must regularly shut down, or slow down, critical plant operations to repair concrete structures such as trenches and sumps due to cracked, weakened, and deteriorating concrete. Maintenance and repair costs can rapidly escalate with significant direct labor and material expenses for rebuilding the specialized facilities. Lost revenue from production downtime can be an even greater cost.

Advances in materials have made it possible to construct concrete infrastructure so durable that petrochemical companies say they are cutting the frequency of their maintenance shutdowns in half. In this webinar, the engineering experts at CERATECH review the new materials and methods that can make this possible. The half-hour webinar covers:

  • the causes of deterioration to traditional concrete in the harsh petrochemical environment,
  • how new cement technologies effectively solve problems,
  • a case study describing its use by a Texas petrochemical company,
  • and how to source superior materials and manage the installation project.

Learn more about: Faster return to service, lower costs, heat resistance, reduced need for coatings, and higher corrosion resistance. It's half an hour that can be worth tens of thousands.
