We are steadily increasing our understanding of the flow conditions that could promote the accumulation of potential corrodents, and there are new test methods being developed to determine the corrosion-related properties of crude oils.
Except for a chapter on atmospheric corrosion, the effects of specific corrodents on specific materials of construction are not covered.
The ability of flowing oil to harmlessly transport trace corrodents like water and sediment is related to velocity, density and viscosity of the oil.
Second, cracking of the paint system means that there is a defect pathway for corrodents and moisture to come into contact with the underlying metal, resulting in corrosion processes that can lead to pitting and intergranular attack and ultimately fatigue failure.
