Everything You Need To Know About Corrosion Inhibitor

Jan 29th 2015 at 10:42 PM

In a world filled with technical innovations and incredible scientific discoveries, there is one more glorious feather added to our caps- the corrosion inhibitors. This one liquid (or chemical substance) can be sustenance for those, who deal with outdoor work, such as forestry and oil rigs.

As the name suggests, this is a chemical substance, which prevents corrosion from happening. Prevents is a strong word to use here, but, that is what it does- completely stops this detrimental process of eating up surfaces of metal from proceeding further.

Corrosion is a phenomenon, which is well-known to leave enough damage to the surface that it has attacked. The process involves eating up the surface of a metal by some outside source, either moisture or the moist air around or the chemicals in contact with them. Corrosion can be biological too, like, for instance, bacterial invasion of some organic material such as wood.

A corrosion inhibitor is one such fluid, which prevents this from happening, and protects our surfaces from any extreme conditions. Let us take the example of metal to understand this better.

Our oil rigs are surrounded by metal pipes, which are inserted well below the sea level or ground level, to bring out the elixir we all love and worship. However, as we know, these metal pipes are every day, subjected to moist ground, sea water, any additive we add to make our oil workable and what not. The result, therefore, is what we see most often in such places - a rusted and corroded surface of the metal, where flakes fly away at a mere touch. Since these metal pipes are difficult to erect and manage, having them wasted away is not an option one would like to contemplate.

Hence, the best solution is such corrosion resistant liquids. These chemical solutions are added inside the surrounding surface as additives or coated on the surface to prevent the rust producing substances to reach the metal surface.

Most of the modern corrosion inhibitors work on a broad range of environments, such as any kind of hazardous gas like hydrogen sulfide or even bacterial invasions. Thus, they are ideal for any damp place or even for metals that float in fluids all the time.

Corrosion is nothing but a chemical reaction by which the metal surface reacts with water and air around. To prevent the reaction from happening is what the inhibitors are mainly designed to do.

While chrome plating can work out well for your car parts, a corrosion inhibitor is an answer to metal and other surfaces in oil rigs and forestry industry.
