Corrosion is costly! If you doubt this, then you probably have never been bitten by the ‘corrosion bug’. Imagine specifying Titanium for 10 brand new heat exchangers or reactors and later realizing that the processing stream has fairly high concentrations of flourine ions. The Titanium will be destroyed in weeks and you’ll have wasted hundreds of thousands of dollars. There are you stand in front of your supervisor, you’ll get that sick feeling in your stomach….that’s the ‘corrosion bug’!
