Hastelloy Autoclaves

  • Used to simulate the process; acid gas composition, temperature and pressures in a laboratory environment
  • A variety of gas compositions available including sour (H2S) service
  • Pressures from 30 psi to 2000 psi
  • Temperatures from 20°c to 200°C
  • Applications:
    • Used to evaluate either batch or continuous corrosion inhibitor products
    • Evaluate corrosion resistance of different material alloys

Rotating Cylinder Electrode (RCE)

  • Designed to create a known and constant shear stress on a metal surface by spinning the working electrode at speeds up to 5,000 rpm
  • Constant cell temperature maintained (from 8°C to 60°C)
  • Positive pressure, anaerobic environment maintained by means of a constant CO2 purge
  • Applications:
    • batch chemical film persistency over time
    • performance of continuous chemicals under controlled shear
    • effect of water miscible chemicals such as methanol on inhibitor performance
    • evaluating fluid corrosivity

Wheel Test Apparatus

  • Traditional method for corrosion inhibitor testing
  • Ideal for dose/response studies

Crude Corrosivity Testing

  • Crude testing is complete according to the ASTM G205 standard guide.
  • Test methodology offers critical information in order to understand the potential corrosivity of crude transmission pipelines.
  • Applications:
    • Evaluate the wettability, emulsion inversion point and corrosivity of partitioned brine
    • Rate the difference in potential for corrosion between crude streams.
