Consider new steam system corrosion protection for refineries
New technology in volatile filming corrosion inhibitors and lower-salting neutralizing amines can provide cost-effective solutions for the steam-condensate system and minimize the risk of amine chloride salt formation.
For decades, neutralizing and filming amines have been used
to protect steam condensate in boiler systems. In refining operations, where steam is
utilized to improve fractionation, added attention is needed to
the type and amount of amines added to the boiler/steam system
to minimize amine chloride salt fouling in the distillation column and crude
overhead. New technology in volatile filming
corrosion inhibitors and lower-salting neutralizing amines can provide
cost-effective solutions for the steam-condensate system and
minimize the risk of corrosive amine chloride salt formation.
This approach is useful for refinery operations working to
maximize distillate production while maintaining protection of
difficult-to-treat steam condensate systems, e.g.,
flashed steam, and high-alkalinity makeup water sources.
