Designing for Corrosion

  • Samuel A. Bradford


Mistakes in plant design are the most frequently cited (58%) cause of corrosion failure in chemical-process industries. Design mistakes are even blamed slightly more than incorrect materials selection. Although “get a better material” might seem to be the answer to any corrosion problem, it becomes obvious, as a failure is investigated, that in most cases the design could be improved.
