The conference, held in November at the corporate headquarters of the Soluciones Reunidas group located at Montcada i Reixac, (Barcelona) benefited from the collaboration of Clemco, Mpa, Indan and Falch, which put on practical workshops focusing on the latest developments in equipment for surface preparation. Information was also shared about the improvements implemented in recent years in terms of security for performing works in Atex zones, with minimum dust generation and allowing simultaneous work with other jobs.
Over 30 professionals responsible for engineering and maintenance attended, from the main Energy, Oil & Gas, Chemical and Shipbuilding sectors including REPSOL, GAS NATURAL, MB92, BASF, UBE CHEMICAL, etc.
Dr. Jordi Abellá, Professor of Chemical Sciences and Director of the Corrosion and Metal Materials Engineering Group (ECOR- IQS), spoke at the conference, to explain the most important factors in metal corrosion.
Jonathan Santana, head of the business unit for the Barcelona region and an expert and certified inspector (Nace / Frosio) in anti-corrosive coatings, represented the Depisa team. He provided attendees with an overall perspective on different surface preparation techniques, paying special attention to the efficiency and level of cleaning attained.
Depisa is planning to hold other technical seminars this year, covering the most important topics in surface preparation and the application of anti-corrosion protection coatings.
