LBBC Baskerville will be exhibiting alongside the University of Leeds at the Corrosion 2019 conference in Nashville, USA from 24th to 28th March 2019 on booths 2111 and 2109.
LBBC Baskerville will be demonstrating capability of a new product range for corrosion testing on the booths.
Dr Danny Burkle, Product Development Engineer from LBBC Baskerville will be presenting a paper on The Design and Development of a New High Pressure and High Temperature System for Supercritical CO2 Corrosion.
Understanding the complex nature of corrosion processes observed in oil and gas or nuclear industries that occur under high pressure and high temperature (HPHT) environments is the key mitigating corrosion-related failures. Corrosion mechanisms and reactions in HPHT environments can be extremely rapid and the investigation of the corrosion behaviour (in particular electrochemical corrosion measurements) can be very challenging experimentally.
This paper demonstrates a newly designed system that is able to perform accurate corrosion tests in HPHT environments. The advantages of the system are able to reduce heat-up/cool-down time, inserting/removing the coupons at any time during the test (at HPHT) and the use of HPHT electrochemical probes to monitor to corrosion rate in-situ. The general and localized corrosion mechanisms and corrosion product morphology/chemistry are determined in this work by using a combination of:
- Mass loss analysis
- Surface profilometry
- Scanning Electron Microscopy (SEM)
- Focused Ion Beam (FIB)
- Energy-Dispersive X-Ray spectroscopy (EDX)
- X-Ray Diffraction (XRD)
- Raman spectroscopy
