Prevention of Hydrogen Blistering and Corrosion by Organic Inhibitors in Hydrocarbon Systems of Varying Composition


The inhibition of the corrosion of steel, caused by hydrogen sulfide, was studied at various pH ranges in the presence of an oil phase. Oil-soluble filming amine-type inhibitors are effective in stopping acid corrosion. At 7.7 pH, only two of the oil-soluble inhibitors tested had any effect. At 10 pH, in the presence of cyanide ion, only the water-soluble inhibitors are effective.
