We’ve previously spoken about storage tank corrosion and microbial-induced corrosion, both of which are plaguing fuel storage systems across the country. Unfortunately, this issue is not getting any better. However, not all corrosion is the same.
There is a specific type of corrosion that is problematic for fuel management professionals, and that is vapor space corrosion. To discuss exactly what this is, how to manage it if you have this in your storage system, and how to lower your risk of this type of corrosion is Kelly Baker, Business Development Manager of Zerust – Oil & Gas for North America.
Listen in as we go over where you will generally find vapor space corrosion and what causes this type of corrosion to occur. You will learn the biggest preventative measure that you can take, why most people in the oil and gas industry don’t like to try new things, and how we can fight this ongoing corrosion battle.
