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.
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.
