Modeling Helps Reduce Corrosion in Refineries
Article published by Materials Performance Magazine. 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).

Autoclave charging for corrosion testing
Using electrolyte simulation prior to performing an autoclave experiment can effectively ensure that the autoclave experiment input will more precisely match the target final conditions. In this OLI Spotlight Seminar, learn how to setup the configuration of your autoclave experiment and calculate the input conditions for our autoclave that will achieve the experiment target.
Mitigating corrosion in refinery overheads
Corrosion in refining overheads as a common problem caused by phase changes in neutralizing amines. Learn how OLI software can calculate safe operating temperatures, by identifying the water dew point, the amine salt point and an ionic dew point for systems involving neutralizing amines
Nitric and Sulfuric Acid Solubility in Dense Phase CO2
Research has shown that strong acids (i.e., sulfuric and nitric acids) may be produced as a result of reactions between impurities during CO2 transport within carbon capture, utilization, and storage (CCUS) systems even when today’s impurity specifications and recommendations are followed. Strong acids are corrosive to carbon steel, which is a very common construction material for CO2 transport pipelines.
Mitigating rich HF corrosion in alklyation An OLI JIP proposal
Ideally, the Integrity Operating Window (IOW) for an HF alkylation unit would be fine-tuned by using process simulation in order to minimize HF corrosion. Rigorous process simulation could predict the thermodynamic phase change temperature and pressure of the streams in the unit and develop safe operating conditions. Join this new OLI JIP to develop the necessary parameters to permit accurate HF alklation modeling.
