The causes and the prevention of carbon steel corrosion in amine systems are reviewed. The corrosive agents are acid gases, oxygen, heat stable salts, amine degradation products, and, in refineries, gas contaminants such as ammonia and hydrogen cyanide. Corrosion mechanisms are provided for carbon steel exposed to amine solutions and for amine regenerator overhead systems containing aqueous condensate. Corrosion is prevented by purification of amines and feed gases, corrosion inhibitors, use of… CONTINUE READING
