Abstract
Not Available Creare proposes to develop a family of temporary storage systems based on an innovative corrosion preventive composite covering. These protective coverings are unique in that they not only offer protection from the environmental elements with an impervious, waterproof outer shell, but also absorb and wick away large volumes of water that may leak between the covering and equipment surface. Such a system would keep the surface of protected equipment dry and significantly reduce the occurrence of corrosion. The proposed composite coverings consist of (1) an outer waterproof membrane, (2) an optional radar absorbent layer, (3) a highly absorbent matrix, and (4) a mesh retaining layer. The highly absorbent matrix can retain up to 400 times its weight in water. Regeneration of the coverings is also possible, enabling the absorbed moisture to evaporate during dry intervals. In Phase I, we will develop prototype coverings and demonstrate the feasibility of our approach. We will evaluate our innovation's corrosion protection ability, facility of use, maintenance requirements, and cost. In Phase II, we will construct a broad range of storage system configurations for field-testing and evaluation.
