Some ways of increasing the stability of steels used in a petroleum processing plant

Abstract

Main types of defects in metals used in plant operation in media containing hydrogen sulfide were studied. It was shown that the exfoliation and cracking of rolled stock in such media are influenced by the micro- and macrostructure of the metal and by the properties and distribution of non-metallic inclusions. Methods of increasing the stability of steels used in petroleum processing plants were recommended.
