    Amine cracking can occur in carbon steel pipelines, which are commonly used in the oil and gas industry. The degradation of amine-based chemicals can lead to corrosion in the pipelines, causing the steel to degrade and potentially leading to leaks and other operational issues. This is why proper selection and use of amine-based chemicals, as well as regular monitoring and maintenance, is crucial in ensuring the safe and effective operation of carbon steel pipelines.

    Amine cracking in HAZ on carbon steel

    Amine cracking can occur in the heat-affected zone (HAZ) of carbon steel pipelines, especially in situations where the temperature exceeds the recommended limits for the particular amine-based chemical being used. The high temperatures can cause the amine-based chemical to degrade, leading to corrosion and potential cracking in the HAZ. This can compromise the integrity and safety of the pipeline, and result in operational issues.
