Topic: Re: If we use a carbon steel tank for storage of amine, will the tank be corroded?

According to my sources on corrosion in refineries, corrosion of carbon steel is not caused by the amine itself but rather by dissolved hydrogen sulfide or carbon dioxide or by amine-degradation products. As long as the amine does not contain these components, it should not significantly corrode carbon steel.
