what is wet corrosion in oil and gas industry?

wet corrosion There are many ways to classify corrosion. However, in general, corrosion is divided into 3 major groups namely Wet corrosion, Dry corrosion, and biological corrosion. Wet corrosion, as the name implies, occurs only in the presence of an aqueous solution or an electrolyte. Dry corrosion or dry corrosion occurs when there is no fluid present or temperature above the dew point of the environment. Biological corrosion or biological corrosion is a specific type of wet corrosion that occurs in the presence of living organisms. sometimes wet corrosion is named as aqueous corrosion. Wet corrosion is an electrochemical process,[…]

What is the best practice of corrosion monitoring ?

why we need to conduct corrosion monitoring? Corrosion monitoring is an activity to check corrosion happened in an equipment. before we conduct a corrosion monitoring, we must understand the basic of corrosion and corrosion type.¬†Corrosion is the destruction or degradation of a metal due to a redox reaction between a metal and various substances in the environment that produce undesirable compounds. The most common example of corrosion is iron corrosion. In the event of corrosion, the metal undergoes oxidation, while oxygen (air) is reduced. The metal rust is generally an oxide or carbonate. The chemical rust formula is Fe2O3.nH2O, a[…]
