Research output: Contribution to conferencePaperpeer-review


The aim of this work is to describe and analyze corrosion problems and their solutions at units of oil refining and petrochemical industry. Low- and high-temperature corrosion phenomena and factors influencing them are discussed. Typical and unique corrosion failure case studies and their prevention at refinery and petrochemical units are described and analyzed. Sulfidic corrosion, naphthenic acid corrosion, and corrosion at the overhead of aromatic column at the petrochemical plant are illustrated. Corrosion management plays vital role in the solving of corrosion problems. The results are summarized in new book "Corrosion Problems and Solutions in Oil Refining and Petrochemical Industry" published by Springer.
