Use of corrosion
inhibitors in solid form promotes the development of a new technique for internal
corrosion protection of oil & gas pipelines and operations of oil wells
acidification, because the controlled dissolution of the corrosion inhibitor
forms a surface on metallic parts, a protective film that prevents or minimizes
undesirable reactions to corrosion. In addition, this technique has important
social and environmental benefits, ensures the operator has a lower risk of
contamination when handling the product, changes the type of industrial packing,
facilitates transportation, reduces solvent use and consequently reduces the
waste that normally results from the use of inhibitors. The purpose of this
article is to present a class of solid corrosion inhibitor tested in the
laboratory and offer proposals for its application in industrial pipes such as
gas and oil pipelines.
