Instead of using expensive alloys to construct a tank or processing vessel, it is often more economical to use a less expensive metal, such as carbon steel, and install a lining to provide protection from corrosion. Corrosion of Linings and Coatings: Cathodic and Inhibitor Protection and Corrosion Monitoring offers focused coverage for professionals interested in protective linings and coatings, corrosion protection, and monitoring techniques.

The author details various materials and methods for controlling and protecting against corrosion. He discusses the use of mortars, grouts, and monolithic surfaces and explains how the use of inhibitors and cathodic protection help prevent corrosion. The book also provides details for various types of linings materials and coatings and includes valuable compatibility charts for each material covered. The author concludes with an explanation of a variety of corrosion monitoring techniques currently available.


"I can honestly say (not as an admirer of Schweitzer which of course I am) these three volumes are a beauty. The work is a great presentation that is easy on the eye and, even better, simple to understand and refer to! It shall forever remain on my desk for quick reference, till a future revision by Schweitzer replaces it."
