|Oil Phase Corrosion inhibitors rely principally on the formation of barrier coatings preventing water from metal surfaces. Mostly ready to use in nature typically used direct from their container without any need for thinning or preparation for use. The coatings can be applied by brush, dip, and spray methods.|
Corrosion is a common problem encountered in crude oil industries carrying high impurities corrosive in nature and degrading all the metal components of pipelines, ﬂow lines, drilling bits, etc. With continual extraction of CO₂, H₂S, water, oil the equipment undergo corrosion resulting in loss of mechanical properties of the materials and eventually leading to metal loss. It protects both ferrous and non-ferrous metals like stainless steel, copper, aluminium, brass, copper, zinc, tin, bronze, and lead.
For parts that need longer term protection (months to years) or those stored in severe environmental conditions (i.e. outside storage) oil-based inhibitors are preferred due to their heavy film and the water rejecting properties they possess. The protective coating, they form varies (semi-hard, soft, oily, transparent, colored) with the specific product.
Features & Benefits:
- Good material compatibility
- Longer protection
- Selective coating on metals
- Applied by brush, dip and spray methods
