Corrosion impacts both the profitability and safety of the refinery. Sulfur and chlorides are the two common species that bring corrosion and therefore introduce safety issues to the petrochemical industry. For safe and efficient operation, the concentration of these corrosive species must be monitored by fast and reliable methodologies.

Crude oil desalting, sour water stripping and amine treatment are the common processes used to remove corrosive species. Ion chromatography is a reliable and efficient technique to measure the concentration of corrosive species in each of these applications. For example, IC can be used to optimize the sour water stripping process by monitoring of sulfur and ammonia species. Additionally, the determination of heat stable salts and degradation products such as bicine by IC helps maintain amine capacity and avoid corrosion.

This webinar provides specific application examples of corrosive species monitoring in crude oil, LPG, sour water stripping and amine treatment. Discover how IC or Combustion IC can be used to meet regulatory requirements, improve productivity and increase process efficiency.


  • Learn how John Powers from SGS leveraged IC to monitor critical corrosion causing compounds 
  • Learn how IC and CIC can be used to meet regulatory requirements 
  • See application case-studies where IC quickly and reliably analyzes corrosive amine derivatives, heat stable salts, sulfur species and ammonia.
