Plastic packaging films can be readily impregnated with Vapor Phase Corrosion Inhibitors (VCIs) to provide corrosion protection, in addition to the basic physical barrier afforded by the plastic. VCI-containing plastic films are recyclable. This paper will discuss the benefits of using in-house recycling lines. Improved environmental profile. Better quality. Cost saving.
Biocorrosion or microbiologically influenced corrosion (MIC) is a major problem in the oil and gas industry. Biofilms are the culprits of MIC. In this work, D-amino acids were used to enhance two biocides, alkyldimethylbenzylammonium chloride (ADBAC) and tributyl tetradecyl phosphonium chloride (TTPC), to treat a field biofilm consortium on C1018 carbon steel coupons.
Corrosion in modern paper mills accounts for 30+% of maintenance expenses. Molecular microbiological methods (MMM): • Quantitative polymerase chain reaction (qPCR) and QuantArray were employed to examine MIC at four paper mills each with unique process characteristics and construction materials in the affected areas.
