Prevent unplanned downtime and lost profit due to corrosion damage
Having the right treatment program in place is critical for preventing corrosion damage. SUEZ's corrosion treatment chemicals include a full portfolio of neutralizers, filmers and non-nitrogen based corrosion inhibitors. These help prevent costly damage due to galvanic or two-metal corrosion, under deposit corrosion, pitting, intergranular corrosion and stress corrosion.
In addition, for crude unit overhead systems, SUEZ employs a LoSALT ionic equilibrium model to measure salt-induced corrosion potential and a TrueSense COMS unit to continuously measure that system and control the chemical treatment program. Both systems utilize SUEZ’s InSight platform to monitor and improve the performance of and communication around the overhead system.
Corrosion Inhibitor features
SUEZ's portfolio of corrosion inhibitors is designed to:
- Reduce equipment cleaning and replacement cost
- Maximize throughput and increase production
- Improve product quality and operational reliability
- Lower overall cost and energy consumption
- Lower waste disposal
- Improve worker safety and compliance with environmental, health and safety regulations
- Increase profit resulting from higher ash removal efficiency
