Topic: Re: How does elemental sulfur form in a water system?

As a veteran of the chemical processing industry and more specifically the pharmaceutical industry, I am not familiar with petrochemical industry processes so I am not in a position to answer your question. ASM Handbook Volume 13C has a section entitled "Corrosion in Petroleum Production Operations" and discusses hydrogen sulfide, polysulfides, and sulfur. Perhaps that would be a good place to start in getting an answer to your question.
