# Examines ways of assessing and controlling corrosion in refinery equipment and operations
# Reviews the factors affecting corrosion in various operations
# Includes case studies on monitoring corrosion in refinery equipment
# Discusses methods to prevent corrosion as well as techniques for troubleshooting corrosion problems

Corrosion in ageing refinery plant presents a serious safety hazard. This important book summarizes key research into corrosion processes in refinery equipment, how it can be measured and controlled. The book reviews factors affecting corrosion such as carburization and metal dusting as well as corrosion in steel and other materials used in refinery technology. It considers corrosion in a range of refinery equipment such as storage tanks, HF alkylation units, sour water strippers, and insulated units. Other chapters discuss ways of testing for corrosion and cracking in refineries together with integrity and life cycle assessment techniques. There is also coverage of ways of trouble-shooting corrosion problems and preventative measures such as coating systems.
