Industrial Corrosion Protection Through Chemical Treatment

"An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure", particularly when dealing with corrosion and it's effects on process equipment. Production downtime, safety concerns, environmental damage and personnel health all outweigh the obvious repair and replacement cost of the damaged equipment. All taken, the annual costs due to corrosion are estimated in the process and power industries are estimated to be around $750 billion globally.

Exterior treatments, such as painting and specialized coatings provide satisfactory results to maintain structural integrity. However, internal protection of process equipment requires a different approach. Building equipment from exotic materials which are immune from corrosion exceed any practical concept of reasonable cost. Another, much more reasonable approach is corrosion protection based on chemical treatment.

This guide, courtesy of Mettler-Toledo Process Analytics shows you the role in-line analytics play in keeping corrosion under control and avoiding unnecessary chemicals consumption in chemical plants, refineries, power and Cogen facilities.
