As you know, in gas refineries amine is used for elimination of carbon dioxide and hydrogen sulfide raw gas. My question: If we use a carbon steel tank for storage of amine, will the tank be corroded?
Have an insight or suggestion?

Re: If we use a carbon steel tank for storage of amine, will the tank be corroded?6 April 2009 at 1:29pmAccording 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.
