Abstract

This paper presents a brief summary of the stress corrosion cracking experience of carbon steel in amine acid gas scrubbing units. In addition, it discusses the current views of the most probable mechanism of cracking of carbon steel equipment in amine acid gas scrubbing units and the probable role of the nature of the amine molecule.
