initiatives in place to better understand the mechanism of corrosion
for mitigating the corrosion. During the 1996 Fall Corrosion Group, organized existing literature relevant to the literature search. Committee Week, NACE International many refineries have and evaluate methods
T-8 Refining Industry a task group, T-8-22, to perform a review and compilation of naphthenic acid corrosion. This paper provides a summary of KEYWORDS: Naphthenic acid, corrosion, crude oil, laboratory tests, inhibitors, metallurgy, TAN.
