NI and IMOA advance knowledge of engineers and specifiers

ASIA: Beijing, Shanghai, Nanjing -  A series of engineering workshops targeting the refining and petrochemical industry took place 19-23 September. The events were jointly sponsored by Nickel Institute and the International Molybdenum Association (IMOA).

NI expert Gary Coates presented:

  • the properties and performance of nickel alloys and stainless steels
  • problems commonly encountered in refining and petrochemical industry
  • high temperature mechanical properties
  • welding and fabrication
  • selection and specific application cases

The events drew over 350 designers and engineers from leading engineering corporations, major refineries, petrochemical corporations and equipment manufacturers as well as the nuclear industry. After many years of educational activities in China in these areas, Nickel Institute and IMOA have established a reputation as authoritative and reliable sources of technical information about stainless steel and nickel alloys. Feedback from the event was very positive.  “We are very grateful to Nickel Institute and IMOA for bringing us such a great training […],” said Yang Huizhang, President, Jiangsu Petrochemical Equipment Industry Association, “Many people generally have superficial knowledge about these high nickel stainless steel and alloys. Compared with [other countries], we still have a certain gap in terms of the application of new materials including nickel alloys. We hope this kind of workshop could be conducted in Nanjing annually.”  The Beijing workshop was also covered by leading industry newspaper China Nonferrous Metals News in print and on the social media channel, WeChat.
