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.

Dale, T., Robinson, G., Rossi, A., GE Water & Process Technologies

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 pro
