Analysis of Failure of 316L Heat Exchanger in a Producing Glycine Process Using Hydantoin Method
In this work, analysis was performed to investigate the reasons resulting in corrosion of 316L of heat exchanger tube in the producing glycine process. Results demonstrated that corrosion of 316L is attributed to intergranular corrosion of nonsensitized. Intergranular corrosion of nonsensitized occurs of 316L, the elements of Si, Ni, Mo are clustering, and the carbon oxide increases corrosion.
