Preventing the corrosion of service refinery, terminal, pipeline and service station is of vital importance in the storage and distribution of liquid fuels.
Corrosion in service stations and terminals is becoming more prevalent with the increased use of ethanol fuels, the introduction of Vapour Recovery Units (VRU) and biological contamination. Service station and terminal corrosion can be effectivity managed with the combined use of biocide and corrosion inhibitor.
If biological problems are present Kathon FP 1.5 can be used to effectivity kill any bacteria present in the fuel system. Kathon FP 1.5 is soluble in both the water phase and fuel phase and can be treated at the terminal or specific service stations.
The DCI-11 corrosion inhibitor can be added to the fuel either at the refinery, terminal or service station. Using DCI-11 provides protection from the refinery to the service station. DCI-11 protects equipment from delivery to dispensing including the immersed pump, pipeline, tank through to the dispenser.
Product and customer insights
Despite numerous cleanings, the productivity of the Reverse Osmosis plant would not recover from severe membrane fouling. The membrane autopsy revealed that the ferric hydroxide was seeding
silica polymerization and that even while the ferric hydroxide was removed, the silica scaling was continuing to grow.
The plant was experiencing weekly shutdowns for fiber clean up (~ 3 kg bags of matted slurry is cleaned per week). The shut downs were costly as they reduce plant availability for production.
The International Maritime Organisation (IMO) regulation, known as IMO 2020 was the the largest change in regulation relating to marine fuels impacting 75% of the fuel used by the shipping industry.
Keeping drilling costs low using Redi-Guard™ High Performance, an ecologically friendly drilling fluid technology with revolutionary rheological and shale encapsulation properties
AWC A-110 effectively inhibited scale at a dosage of 3.5 ppm and an operating pH of 6.9. This increase in operating pH reduced the district’s annual acid consumption by ~$350K per year based on their current production.
Research indicates that Sea Buckthorn may be able to strengthen the immune system. One in vitro study focused on the possible immunomodulatory properties of Sea Buckthorn.
MCI® -2020 V/O and ChemMaster’s Colorsil were chosen to repair and protect the walls based on their 20 year warranties and the fact that together they could fulfill the other specified repair design requirements.
The East Hokkaido region is known to have the highest volume of potato product in Japan. Unfortunately, a potato farmer in the area was experiencing a high rate of potato scab infection in his agricultural field.
