Each year, significant economic losses due to corrosion failures occur in the refining and petrochemical industries; unfortunately, many of these losses could have been prevented. Petroleum refining today is unusually sophisticated compared to the single-shell stills of the 1800s, and the industry shows every indication of becoming even more complex. Chemical and mechanical engineering advances are increasing product yields and improving plant operating reliability, and crude units have been highly integrated with secondary and petrochemical plants, such as fluidized catalytic cracking units (FCCUs), hydrocracking units, and delayed coker and polymer plants. These units are operating under
