Materials Science Training

On October 2 and 3, 2017 Swagelok Nederland organized  an interesting training on the subject of Materials Science. This training was given to help you, your engineers and technical specialists to acquire the right knowledge to select optimal materials of construction for demanding applications. 

This one day class provided a basic knowledge of the principles of material science, along with information on corrosion and other factors affecting material properties.
We hired the Instructor Gerhard Schiroky, a specialist from the US, to teach you all about  this topic.

Key learning objectives
• Understand critical concepts surrounding the basic nature and behavior of materials, such as:
– A simple atom-level view of metals
– Microstructural characteristics of materials
– Ferritic, austenitic, and duplex alloys
– Mechanical properties of materials

• Explain different types of corrosion and how specific alloys resist corrosion
• Discuss sour gas corrosion, NACE standards, and component selection for compliance with NACE standards
• Select appropriate materials of construction for various applications, considering factors such as pressure ratings, temperature ratings, corrosive threats, and compliance with standards and specifications
• Explain various alloy options, along with their advantages and disadvantages
• Open discussion about the topics in this training
