The Mike Rohe Foundation Changed My Life!

The Mike Rohe Foundation Changed My Life!"I started this journey with a mountain high of inspiration, but with no hope of financial realism. I knew I was certain about starting a career in NDT.

But, it takes money to earn money. I had no idea how I was going to be able to afford my education. Then I saw a commercial about the Mike Rowe scholarship foundation. I knew this was my shot to try and pursue after the education I wanted/needed.

I contacted my Mike Rowe foundation and submitted my application. I was nervous at first, had no idea what to expect, or even what to do. They made it easy, walked me thru the application steps, and kept in steady contact with me in term of the progress.

The day I found out I had been accepted, I was overjoyed, and in disbelief. I had to let reality sink in. Applying for the Mike Rowe foundation was absolutely the best decision vie ever made, it was life changing! Word can’t explain how thankful and fortunate I am to have this opportunity. And as I write this, I am full speed into my career and loving the NDT field."

Inspecting Explosion-Bonded Cladded Plates

Inspecting Explosion-Bonded Cladded Plates Cladded metals are increasingly being used across a wide range of industries, including oil and gas production, power generation plants, chemical, and even marine ship manufacturing. Cladded metals are mainly used to increase the cost-effectiveness of metal structures while preserving or increasing safety and durability.

Cladded metals

Two or more metals can be used in layers, and they usually complement each other. For example, one layer of metal might provide corrosion resistance, while the other maintains the required structural strength. This type of cladded metal combination is common in the offshore oil industry. Here, thin layers of Inconel® or super duplex alloy can be used in conjunction with carbon steel or stainless steel alloys. In other cases, the use of stainless steel layers on carbon steel structures is a compromise between increasing corrosion resistance and keeping cost at reasonable levels.

Possible metal combinations include titanium/carbon steel, titanium/stainless steel, aluminum bronze/carbon steel, stainless steel/carbon steel, nickel alloys/carbon steel, duplex or super duplex/carbon steel, aluminum/carbon steel, etc. The types of structures that can benefit from metal cladding include tube sheets, reactor vessels, heat exchangers, condensers, and more.
