Granta enables new online resource for MTI members

MTI logo Jacksonville, FL, USA—Feb 25, 2009 Granta's Chief Operating Officer, Dr Patrick Coulter, was a speaker at this week's TAC 98 Meeting of the Materials Technology Institute (MTI) in Jacksonville, FL.

MTI is a not -for-profit technology development organization representing leading enterprises in fields including materials production, oil and gas, and chemicals (read a list of member organizations on the MTI website). Dr Coulter introduced the results of a project in which Granta has been collaborating with MTI to enable new data retrieval services for MTI members.

Twenty-one MTI publications have now been made available in a searchable online format using the GRANTA MI platform. Dr Coulter demonstrated the latest version of this new resource. The MTI publications covered are:

  • Materials Selection for the Chemical Process Industry (2nd Edition)
  • Guidelines for Troubleshooting Water Cooled Heat Exchangers
  • MS-1 Sulfuric Acid (2nd Edition)
  • MS-2 Formic, Acetic and Other Organic Acids
  • MS-3 Hydrochloric Acid, Hydrogen Chloride and Chlorine
  • MS-4 Hydrogen Fluoride and Hydrofluoric Acid
  • MS-5 Nitric Acid
  • MS-6 Ammonia and Caustic Soda
  • MS-7 Phosphoric Acid
  • Cleaning of Process Equipment and Piping
  • Inspection Guidelines for Pressure Vessels and Piping—Volume 1: New Fabrication
  • Inspection Guidelines for Pressure Vessels and Piping—Volume 2: Manual and Pocket Guides
  • Unusual Corrosion Problems in the Chemical Industry
  • Corrosion Control in the Chemical Process Industries (2nd Edition)
  • Guidelines for Preventing Stress Corrosion Cracking in the Chemical Processing Industry
  • Carburization—A High Temperature Corrosion Phenomenon
  • Permeation of Polymers in Process Industry Applications
  • Thermal Spray Coating Applications in the Chemical Process Industries
  • Corrosion Testing of Iron- and Nickel-Based Alloys—Part 1: Test Methods

Granta specializes in materials information technology—deploying complex technical information for engineering organizations. In addition to supporting information providers such as MTI, Granta helps engineering companies to manage and deploy their own proprietary data, and provides easy access to a wide range of reference information. An example of Granta reference data relevant to organizations in the chemicals process, oil and gas sectors is the ASME BPVC data module, which provides materials information from the ASME Boiler and Pressure Vessel code.
