BMC Care & Maintenance booklet - amendment

Posted by Stuart Ingram on 28/03/2001

The BMC Technical Committee wishes to highlight an addendum to the text of its recent publication, Care & Maintenance.

This clarification has become necessary due firstly to the use of differing terms within different industries to describe similar chemical processes, and secondly after consideration of further material unavailable at the time of writing.

The committee would like to stress that there are no safety issues involved with this change, it is purely an issue of technical nomenclature and a small revision, and apologise for any misunderstandings that this may have created.

The section concerned involves pages 33 and 34 (the section on seawater corrosion), and an updated version of the text with changes highlighted is available below as a pdf.
