Oil & gas and steel industry

Scinetists focusing on the oil & gas and steel industries are often interested in the corrosive effects of H2S and CO2 on carbon steels. They are using HIC testing, constant-load instruments, four-point bending frames and SSRT instruments, as well as autoclaves and recirculation loops for this purpose. Controlled-flow instruments including rotating electrodes, jet-impingement instruments and high-speed loops are used to study flow-assisted corrosion and inhibitor performance.
