Corrosion Problems and Solutions in Oil Refining and Petrochemical Industry (Hardcover) (Alec Groysman)
about this item
This book addresses corrosion problems and their solutions at facilities in the oil refining and petrochemical industry, including cooling water and boiler feed water units. Further, it describes and analyzes corrosion control actions, corrosion monitoring, and corrosion management.
Corrosion problems are a perennial issue in the oil refining and petrochemical industry, as they lead to a deterioration of the functional properties of metallic equipment and harm the environment – both of which need to be protected for the sake of current and future generations. Accordingly, this book examines and analyzes typical and atypical corrosion failure cases and their prevention at refineries and petrochemical facilities, including problems with: pipelines, tanks, furnaces, desalters, distillation columns, and heat exchangers. In addition, it describes naphthenic acid corrosion, stress corrosion cracking, hydrogen damages, sulfur corrosion, microbiologically induced corrosion, erosion-corrosion, and corrosion fatigue occurring at refinery units.
