STRUCTURAL TECHNOLOGIES will be hosting a series of webinars this month designed to provide education on civil and structural infrastructure topics. Click the register button for each webinar you would like to sign up for.

Webinar Series 1 (April 19-22, 2020)
Plant-wide Condition Management System
for Sulfur Pits
SUNDAY, 19 APRIL 2020 | 3-4 PM (KSA) / 4-5 PM (UAE)

Sulfur Recovery Units (SRU’s) in Petrochemical Facilities are subject to harsh environmental operating conditions and as such important civil infrastructure assets experience aggressive deterioration & chemical attack. Knowledge of the existing condition of these critical assets via a thorough proactive risk-based assessment can provide an Owner/Operator with an understanding of their potential risk while in operation.

The Presentation will focus on assessment & repair of Sulfur Containment structures as well as ancillary support structures within SRU’s such as pipe racks & equipment support foundations.
