Crude changes… corrosion challenges

The Challenge:

Not all crudes contain the same corrosives.

Refiners know how different opportunity crudes can be. And that difference extends to the types and levels of corrosives in those crudes. How do you make sure that systems used to contain and deliver crudes remain corrosion-free? We are specialists in custom solutions for these challenges.

Our Response:

Analysis, remediation, prevention

The Hendrix Group has deep roots in the refining industry. In over two decades we have conducted thousands of failure-analysis investigations involving corrosion and mechanical-related failures. These investigations have led to site-specific solutions for corrosion monitoring, corrosion control, asset-integrity management (AIM), inspection and analysis of equipment, and piping failures.
