Offshore Vessels and Pipework Require Alloys and Coatings

Offshore platforms present a number of corrosion problems. Authors from Conoco Phillips found that Iron contamination from debris generated during topside construction and chlorides from the marine atmosphere provided the conditions necessary for ferric chloride pitting corrosion of uncoated 316 stainless steel (SS), duplex and super duplex SS, and 6% Mo SS pipework and vessels. Several offshore cleaning/coating methods were evaluated, and a new procedure for cleaning was identified that achieved the desired goal without removal of metal or affecting the corrosion-resistant alloy's passive film integrity. This abstract posting is courtesy of Industeel who provides the alloys needed to combat these corrosive conditions.
