Crevice corrosion prevention

Published:  19 January, 2016

Corrosion at pipe supports is reported to be one of the leading causes of process piping failure, beam supports and pipe saddles create crevices, where water is trapped and held in constant contact with the pipe surface.

Under these conditions, the corrosion mechanism can begin quickly and then undercut the paint film. Crevice corrosion causes rapid wall loss to the pipe. If these conditions are not addressed, entire sections of pipe will fail and require replacement, at great cost to the operator.

Deepwater says it has developed the I-Rod brand of pipe supports specifically to combat crevice corrosion and ensure a long, safe life for pipelines by eliminating the crevice between the pipe and the support.
