Corrosion Control in Petro-Chemical Plants Refineries, Petrochemicals, Fertilizer Basic Chemicals



From units’ proximity to saltwater to their production and storage of hazardous chemicals, refineries pose unique challenges that require specialized training to combat corrosion. The coursework covers the effects of corrosion on the production environment and addresses methods to implement corrosion control throughout the full lifecycle, from material selection and design to maintenance.

Course Objectives:

At the end of this course the participants will be able to:

  • Identify the various forms of corrosion and the specific mechanisms that result in each form
  • Define electrochemical processes and concepts
  • Recognize the different types of corrosive environments that affect corrosion
  • Give examples as to how and when to use control corrosion methods of design, materials selection, modification of the environment, protective coatings, and cathodic and anodic protection
  • Give examples of control corrosion by a selection of design and engineering materials, modification of the environment, cathodic and anodic protection, and protective coatings
  • Discuss corrosion monitoring techniques using testing, inspection, specimen exposure, electrochemical methods, water chemistry, and analysis of deposits

Targeted Audience:

  • Design engineers
  • Process engineers
  • Procurement agents
  • Maintenance planners
  • Service company representatives who support refineries
