Corrosion is a significant challenge for refiners in downstream operations. A company’s objectives include maintaining production, increasing yield, and growing profits, but doing this successfully involves understanding the reason for—and extent of—corrosion. This is a considerable problem in crude tower overheads. One of the key factors in causing this corrosion in crude distillation unit overheads is hydrochloric acid (HCl).
