Title: CORROSION INHIBITION

Abstract

The protection of ferrous metsls from the corrosive action of aqueous solutions is accomplished by the incorporation of small amounts of certain additive agents into the aqueous solutions. The method comprises providing a small concentration of technetium, in the form of pertechnetate ion, dissolved in the solution.

  • This patent describes an electromagnetic heating system for an oil well or other mineral fluid well, including a main heating electrode located downhole in the well at a level adjacent a mineral fluid deposit, and a return electrode located such that an electrical current between the electrodes passes through and heats a portion of the mineral fluid deposit, an electrical energizing apparatus including an A.C.power source for generating a high amplitude. A.C. heating current, of at least fifty amperes, a D.C. bias source for generating a low amplitude D.C. bias current having a given polarity such as to inhibit corrosionmore » at the main electrode, and connection means for applying both the A.C. heating current and the D.C. bias current to the electrodes of the well heating system. It comprises a bias circuit, connected to a heating circuit that includes the A.C. power source, the bias circuit including at least one semiconductor device and developing a net D.C. voltage differential of the given polarity in response to the A.C. heating current.« less
  • A corrosion inhibiting composition is described comprising a combination of aluminum, magnesium and silicon present in a form permitting dispersion in hydrocarbon fuel oil, the weight ratio of Mg to Al being between 0.01 to 100 and the weight ratio, (Mg+Al)/Si, being between 0.01 and 100, aluminum and magnesium constituting 100% of the metals present in the composition.
  • Fractionation apparatus material corrosion in a coal liquefaction system is reduced by addition of compounds having a pK.sub.b <6 to tower feed streams or to the tower itself.
  • Tower material corrosion in an atmospheric or sub-atmospheric distillation tower in a coal liquefaction process is reduced or eliminated by subjecting chloride-containing tray contents to an appropriate ion-exchange resin to remove chloride from such tray contents materials.
  • A method of inhibiting corrosion of aluminum-nickel alloys by water or aqueous solutions at 150 to 350 deg C which consists of adding silicic acid in amounts ranging from 100 to 1000 ppm to the solutions is given; a corrosion- resistant coating of a complex aluminum silicate is formed on the alloy surface. In this way, corrosion is reduced from the usual rate of 0.1 to 0.01 in. per year for water at 260 deg C and a velocity of 20 fps to 0.001 in. per year or less, which is advantageous in use of aluminum-nickel alloys as fuel rodmore » sheath material in water-cooled reactors. This method is most effective for aluminum- nickel alloys of 0.5 to 5.0 wt.% Ni, especially those containing 0.5 to 2.5 wt.% Ni, 0.5 to 1.0 wt.% Fe, and 0.1 to 0.2 wt.% Si. The alloys may be pretreated by heating in an aqueous solution of silicic acid te 250 to 350 deg for 1 to 7 days. A mixed bed resin saturated with silicic acid may be installed in a cool bypass in parallel with the circulating water system to regulate the silicic acid concentration in the water. Several examples of the corrosion reduction afforded by this method are given for both static and flowing water systems. (D.L.C.)« less
