Retirements of baby-boom generation have made technical know-how vacancy. It is a great issue to transfer the know-how to younger engineers. Chemical plants in Mizushima complex in Okayama prefecture have been 40 several years since they have been fabricated, and they have become aged. In aged chemical plants troubles and personal accidents due to corrosion occur frequently.
The role of professional consultant in corrosion and corrosion control engineering is to breed young engineers to qualified corrosion engineers in order to keep aged plants safe.
In this paper, the author gives several messages for younger corrosion and corrosion control engineers.
Finally, the author presents “Pitting in percolation of pool water made of SUS304” as an example of know-how learning among various troubled cases.
