Erosion is defined by NACE International as “The progressive loss of material from a solid surface resulting from mechanical interaction between that surface and a fluid, a multicomponent fluid, or solid particles carried with the fluid.”
This SP provides guidance on internal erosion and erosion-corrosion management. Guidance is given for erosion and erosion-corrosion threat assessment/prediction, barrier selection, monitoring, inspection, risk assessment and data management. This SP covers mainly sand caused erosion. However, the guidance in this document can be used for other solid particles.
This SP is applicable to tubular products, e.g., tubing, pipelines, flowlines, risers, valves, and piping systems.
In the eight years since the first edition of this book was published by NACE International, the demand for corrosion management expertise and services (i.e., training, auditing, consultancy, and field implementation) has been growing, both within the hydrocarbon and the non-hydrocarbon industries.
This latest edition is almost a total revamp of the previous one and greatly benefits from the author’s continuous learning process through his frequent involvement with various oil and gas sectors and different industries as a corrosion management trainer, auditor, and consultant.
