Corrosion is an inevitable natural occurring, that leads to the destructive failure of the metallurgy, and loss of strength of the metal. Synthetic and specialized high resistivity materials have been developed to take on with highly corrosive services. Unusual care is taken while handling corrosive materials at elevated temperatures and pressures. Engro had experience of handling and containing highly corrosive mass leakage at Urea stripper liquid.
