Corrosion and materials help for your pulp and paper mill.
Many helpful Technical Information Papers (TIPs) and TAPPI Press books already address a large number of costly corrosion and materials problems commonly facing maintenance and engineering personnel. The latest industry standard practices and technical information for typical mill process areas are shown in the box below.
These publications are available electronically and in hard copy. To find the TIPS, visit the TAPPI web site at www.tappi.org, click "Standards" at the top of the TAPPI Home Page. Scroll down about half way to the listing of general information documents. TIPS from the Corrosion and Materials Engineering (C&ME) Committee start with 0402. To read search suggestions for finding TIPs on the web, click the link on the left of the Standards page to the "How to Order" page.
Beginning in March 2004, TAPPI will offer a new service whereby companies may pay a single license fee for all employees to have access to all TIPs and TAPPI Test Methods. This new service will be an improvement over the CDs and books in that it will be web-based and continually updated. Find details at www.tappi.org/index.asp?pid=27493.
The technical information in these TIPs and books reflects continuous and purposeful work by members of the five sub-committees in the C&ME Committee of the Engineering Division to provide technical leadership in issues that can affect safety and reliability and always affect maintenance costs at pulp and paper mills. These documents can help mills save money by doing more of the right things and by doing them right.
With so few traditional technical resources still available in many companies, these publications are becoming even more valuable. In addition, if a corrosion or materials problems not covered by these publications is your greatest concern, the members of the C&ME Committee of TAPPI's Engineering Division are always looking for new areas in which to help the industry. Veranda Edmondson (firstname.lastname@example.org) can assist you in reaching the committee officers, or go directly to our committee page at www.tappi.org/index.asp?pid=15954.
