LBBC Baskerville’s Dr Danny Burkle presenting at Eurocorr 2017

LBBC Baskerville’s, Product Development/Research Engineer, Dr Danny Burkle has presented his PhD research findings in conjunction with Richard Barker and Anne Neville from University of Leeds and Rehan De Motte from IFP Energies nouvelle in France at the Eurocorr 2017 conference in Prague, Czech Republic. The presentation was on Monday 4th covering ‘Investigation into the kinetics and composition of the protective layer formed during ‘pseudo passivation’ of carbon steel: An in situ and ex situ approach’.

The European Corrosion Congress 2017, 20th International Corrosion Congress & Process Safety Congress 2017 is being held in Prague, Czech Republic and runs from 3rd to 7th September 2017.

The annual conference of the European Federation of Corrosion, EUROCORR, is a flagship event in the field of European corrosion science. Uniquely in 2017, it is co-organised by the International Corrosion Council and Center for Chemical Process Safety becoming thus the largest scientific corrosion event ever held in Europe.

The Congress will cover all aspects of corrosion science and engineering and material protection with world-wide reach. Main topics include the advances in corrosion prevention, corrosion monitoring, corrosion resistant materials, surface treatment and coatings, inspection and non-destructive testing, electrochemical methods, analytical techniques and microscopy, corrosion inhibitors and others.

With expected attendance of 1500 delegates, the Congress will be a unique networking opportunity for scientists, academics, students and representatives of research institutions and industry in a vibrant professional setting and atmosphere. The scientific programme will consist of plenary lectures by world-renowned corrosion specialists, over 20 pointed keynote lectures and about 800 oral presentations. Fifteen parallel sessions on a variety of topics will offer corrosionists from all over the world the opportunity to meet and present their research.


LBBC Baskerville and University of Leeds host successful industry workshop

LBBC Baskerville industry workshopLBBC Baskerville and University of Leeds hosted a successful industry workshop as part of their Knowledge Transfer Partnership (KTP) last month.


The event was well attended with a group of around 30 oil and gas and research industry specialists.


Industry workshop

Attendees heard from Professor Anne Neville, RAEng Chair in Emerging Technologies at University of Leeds on ‘The need for corrosion testing and linking to the field’ and Trevor Hughes, Scientific Advisor for Schlumberger, Cambridge on ‘Linking Laboratory Corrosion Testing to Field Applications: Current and Future Field Challenges’.  There were also several open discussion sessions and a tour of the LBBC facilities.

Further details of LBBC Baskerville and University of Leeds research developments will be available in due course.

LBBC Baskerville teams up with University of Leeds on KTP

LBBC Baskerville teams up with The University of Leeds on a KTP project

LBBC Baskerville, autoclave manufacturers in Leeds, have teamed up with The University of Leeds on a Knowledge Transfer Partnership (KTP) project. The project will look at the opportunity to develop a range of innovative high pressure autoclave incorporating, continuous, real-time monitoring of the corrosion process being investigated within the vessel.

Danny Burkle who will be leading the project, holds a Masters degree in Mechanical Engineering and is about to complete a PhD in oilfield corrosion from The University of Leeds. Danny has 4 years’ experience in the oil & gas and steel industries working on a range of projects with BP, Petrofac and Tata Steel Projects. He is a member of the Institution of Mechanical Engineers.

Danny Burkle, said “This is an extremely exciting and challenging project which has relevance throughout LBBC’s product range and business. The results and findings from this project can be applied through LBBC Baskerville’s product range. This partnership with LBBC will ultimately increase the efficiency and quality of the development of autoclave systems for corrosion testing.”

Robert Pickard, Director said “We are pleased to be working with the University of Leeds again on our second KTP project. Danny is a great addition to the team and will lead the project to develop Baskerville products to meet the future needs of those involved in corrosion testing”

Baskerville Reactors and Autoclaves brand acquired by LBBC Group

The brand and product range of the company Baskerville Reactors and Autoclaves Ltd has been acquired by LBBC Group and will now trade under the division LBBC Baskerville.

LBBC has been established for over 140 years working in the industrial engineering sector in particular specialising in industrial autoclaves. The group welcomed the opportunity to bring the Baskerville range of products within the group as it provides an excellent fit to their existing activities.

“It works really well for us to integrate the Baskerville product range into our existing activities as we have good mechanical and systems engineers familiar with this type of product as well as comprehensive project management and service support resources. Coupled with our long trading history in a global market and our financial stability, we are very excited about the prospects”
Howard Pickard, Managing Director
