Measures for reducing SCC in anhydrous ammonia storage tanks

Authors


Abstract

The results from four research projects on ammonia stress corrosion cracking (SCC) are provided, including the effect of oxygen and water in the ammonia, prevention of SCC with electrochemical methods, crack growth rate studies, and behavior of welds. Practical recommendations are given for construction, inspection, repair, commissioning, and operation of ammonia storage tanks.
