Intergranular cracking and faiulure of carbon steel piping and vessels of FCC Main Fraqctionator overhead systems in NH3-H2S-CO2- containing environments is attributed to carbonate stress corrosion cracking. From plant water sampling program, cracking is correlated with water chemistry, open circuit potential and pH.
As CORROSION journal celebrates 75 years of corrosion mitigation and control research in 2019, we offer a selection of articles by decade. These articles remain the most viewed research articles of their respective decade, highlighting important topics, experimental methods and discussions surrounding the pertinent research of the day, and they continue to provide intelligence, perspective and insights for today’s corrosion research.
The corrosion profession, and the certified professionals who work in the industry, are committed to protecting people, assets and the environment from the effects of corrosion. Those tasked with delivering the technical expertise to society must conduct their work with the knowledge and understanding of the ethical principles expected and required of those professionals.
The NACE International Code of Ethics is discussed in conjunction with case studies and features real-life ethical violations of the NACE International Institute attestations. Frameworks for making ethical decisions are reviewed in this course along with the factors in the corrosion industry that can lead to unethical behavior.
The course is an online, self-paced course which should take no longer than 1.5 to 2 hours to complete.
Purchase of this course includes a one-year subscription and is non-refundable. Students will have access to all course materials for a period of one year from the date of registration. All course work must be completed during this time period. Extensions or transfers cannot be granted.

A major fire in a Reactor Effluent Air Cooler (REAC) of the Hydrocracker Unit (HCU). Visual inspection was made on the failed portion. Metallurgical investigation, macrostructural and microstructural analysis, Scanning Electron Microscopy, and Energy Dispersive x-ray Spectroscopy was conducted on the failed air cooler.
