A large manufacturer in Southeast Asia needed corrosion protection during hydrotesting, shipping, and storage of a variety of newly fabricated oil and gas equipment. They used VpCI®-649 BD to protect the boiler and drum during hydrotesting and applied VpCI®-609 to all equipment (reactors, vessels, columns, drums, separators, etc.) for six months of protection during shipping and prior to commissioning. They were very satisfied with the easy and fast method of corrosion inhibition, which replaced their conventional protection strategy of nitrogen purge.
