Process vessels, also known as pressure vessels, deliver a critical function within oil and gas upstream operations. Subjected to elevated temperatures and pressures, these vessels are used to process hydrocarbon mixtures to remove corrosive materials from oil before transport. Linings are frequently used to mitigate corrosion inside process vessels and extend their service lives and maintenance cycles.
