Some corrosion problems in ammonia and methanol plants

Some corrosion problems in ammonia and methanol plants

Nitrogen and Methanol ( 241): 53, 55-56

Problems occurring in ammonia and methanol plants include stress corrosion cracking in the carbon storage steels used for storage, hydrogen embrittlement of low alloy steels, carbon dioxide corrosion of steels, nitriding of steels, localized corrosion in stainless steels (intergranular attack or chloride pitting of steels).
