Corrosion in Amine Treating Units, Second Edition presents a fully updated resource with a broadened focus that includes corrosion in not only refining operations, but also in oil and gas production. New sections have been added on inhibition, corrosion modeling and metallic coatings. More detailed descriptions of the degradation mechanisms and Integrity Operating Windows (IOW) are now included, as is more in-depth information on guidelines for what sections and locations are most vulnerable to corrosion and how to control corrosion in amine units e.g., using corrosion Loop descriptions and providing indicative integrity operating windows for operation to achieve a suitable life expectance.

Key Features

  • Provides new insights on the degradation mechanisms occurring in amine treating units and the locations within the unit where they occur
  • Discusses how to mitigate and control corrosion in amine units
  • Provides guidance for setting up corrosion control documents and inspection and maintenance plans for amine treating units


Physico-chemical researchers and engineers, electromechanical researchers and engineers; Graduate students

About the Editor

Johan van Roij

Johan van Roij is a Senior Materials and Corrosion Engineer, working in Shell’s materials and corrosion research department from 1980 until 1988 and from 1995 until 1999 performing research on high temperature corrosion, stress corrosion cracking mechanisms, CO2-H2S corrosion, corrosion in amine treating units, underground (soil) corrosion, corrosion in chemical plants. From 1999 – 2010 he worked with Shell Global Solutions International as corrosion engineer working on materials selection for projects (especially Chemical plants and Amine Treating units), supporting Shell and non-Shell sites with integrity management programs (Corrosion Reviews, Risk Based Inspection implementations, Integrity Operating Windows, etc.) and materials selection for new units. Since 2010, Mr. van Roij has worked for Shell Projects & Technology as a senior materials and corrosion engineer for Refinery units and Chemical plants and “subject matter expert” for corrosion and corrosion mitigation in Chemicals plants and Amine Treating units.
