Dear Valued Customer,

We are writing to let you know we have decided to sell our Coil Service Centre in Australia.

The value in the business is created through the support of customers like yourselves, and so we have worked hard to ensure that the on-going business recognises that customer interface support and processes are embedded in the underlying culture. The new owners, Midway Metals, recognise the goodwill that has been created through our good relationships with our existing customers and are keen to ensure that they protect that value by working hard to keep existing customers happy.

We sought out a buyer who really appreciates the business, understands how to operate it properly, and is keen and capable of developing its future potential.

No major changes are planned for the business in the short term. The new owners, however, will be seeking customer feedback to identify how additional customer value can be created.

The employees of the business support the sale and are positive about the future under the new management. 

Existing owners and the new owners are available to answer any questions.


Yours Sincerely

Con Logos
Managing Director - Outokumpu
Australia & New Zealand
Paul Batty
Managing Director - Midway Metals

Webinar Overview
Stainless steel is widely used for architectural, industrial, commercial and marine environments because of its unchanging appearance and corrosion resistance. These excellent experiences mean that users may assume that stainless steels will withstand all conditions of exposure, design and fabrication practices - sometimes with unfortunate results.
 
This webinar looks at the correct selection, processing/joining and use of a stainless steel in three broad chloride environments:
  • Atmospheric exposure including superstructure of boats
  • Splash/cyclic immersion zones
  • Full immersion including flow and stagnant conditions

In tune with Australasian practice, examples will deal with duplex and austenitic stainless steels. While superficial tea staining will be considered, this webinar will concentrate on more aggressive conditions and how to obtain the expected service. Two application areas are desalination plant (both seawater and brackish/wastewater treatment) and marine scrubbers for exhaust gases.

Presenter: Dr Graham Sussex, Technical Specialist

Webinar Overview

This webinar brings together the (generally) pre-commissioning chemical treatments with the on-going care of installed stainless steel.

The grouping is made to emphasise that stainless steel is a low maintenance product but that it needs either natural maintenance (provided by good design) or a supplemental cleaning program to deal with natural grime or human applied detritus. Much of this information is distributed across the ASSDA website and in the 2020 ASSDA Reference Manual, but this webinar draws the disperate elements into a coherent whole with multiple examples.

Topics include:
  • What is pickling and what does it do to stainless steel?
  • What is passivation treatment and how is it different from pickling?
  • How do you tell if the stainless steel is passive?
  • What standards can be applied?
  • Where does electropolishing fit in and how does it differ from electrocleaning?
  • Are these treatments always required?
  • Maintenance: How good design helps, routine cleaning, what not to do, techniques for specific contamination/damage.

Webinar Overview

Stainless steels have been in use for more than 100 years. Overwhelmingly, the most common type is the familiar austenitics, but the duplex grades considered in this webinar were first developed in the 1930s. It required the development of the Argon Oxygen Decarburisation (AOD) process in the 1970s before the use of duplex grades really started to grow. From applications in the chemical industry, oil and gas plus other niche applications, duplex is now widely used as a stronger and viable alternative to some austenitics and, in some circumstances, as an economical alternative to coated or galvanised mild steel. 

Topics covered include:
  • Why is it called duplex and is it really stainless steel?
  • The history of its development into the family of duplex grades including multiple examples of its use
  • Typical mechanical and physical properties
  • Property comparisons to other stainless steel families and where they provide an advantage
  • Corrosion resistance of the duplex grades with examples drawn from industry 
  • Handling and fabrication of duplex grades and some specific precautions
  • Considerations of typical work instructions and pointers to additional assistance

Webinar Overview

Stainless steel screws are widely used to fasten metal cladding and timber to structural steels, but there still seems to be concern about corrosion whenever there is a bimetallic contact. There is more than the presence of metals in contact to consider and this webinar will tease out the critical factors that can cause corrosion while disentangling their interactions.

Topics covered include:

  • The four steps of a corrosion loop
  • The galvanic series and where the different stainless steels fit
  • The effect of wetted area ratios and indirect metallic connections
  • Atmospheric, marine, potable water and industrial environments
  • Insulation, isolation or material change – which are possible?
  • How far can galvanic effects travel down a pipe?
  • What is the relationship between electrolysis and galvanic corrosion?
  • When is dissimilar metal contact beneficial?
  • Standards and codes of practice
  • Classic examples of good and bad galvanic couples
    PLUS
  • Consideration of any examples provided by attendees BEFORE the webinar
