Nitric and Sulfuric Acid Solubility in Dense Phase CO2

November 2019

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  

September 2018

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.

Modeling Helps Reduce Corrosion in Refineries

December 2020

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).
