Pipeline corrosion inhibitors

This firm is now offering a Pipeline Rockshield with an active corrosion inhibitor — the Tuff-N-Nuff-ACI. It 

employs vapor phased corrosion science in the inhibitor. The environmentally friendly inhibitor is mixed into the Tuff-N-Nuff compound at a specific portion; the compound is then extruded into the finished Tuff-N-Nuff Rockshield.

Corrosion inhibiting ions are emitted in a manner similar to an air freshener. The ions settle onto all surfaces, recesses, and cavities in relative proximity to the source. Upon contact, the ions condense — forming an anticorrosive layer that is 1 to 2 molecules thick. The ACI layer prohibits rust on any exposed steel or holiday in the pipe coating.

The application of vapor phased corrosion inhibitors to protect underground pipelines is a new concept, it’s reported. ACI is not meant as a replacement, or as an alternative, to cathodic protection.
