BACKGROUND OF THE CHALLENGE
Chloride-induced corrosion on carbon steel, stainless steel and aluminium cracking is one of the problems faced in chemical processing and petrochemical industries. During plant operation, traces of chloride contaminant has been spotted in the process gas and these chloride accumulates on the surface of metals in certain locations that could lead to pitting and cracking in the process equipment, depending on temperature and chloride concentration. Chloride attack on stainless steel and aluminium form pits and grow perpendicularly to the surface being attacked, and at certain temperatures these type of corrosion can cause chloride-induced stress cracking of the material.
