SIIC is an electrochemical corrosion mechanism in combination with deformation (strain). The following conditions are a pre-requisite for occurrence of these cracks : The presence of an electrolyte as a result of condensation of ammonium carbamate in the gas phase or liquid phase. If the liquid level is extremely high, such cracks are also observed in the liquid phase because an electrolyte is always present. Plastic deformation (=strain) of the liner material. Plastic deformation of the liner plates will always occur during start up of the plant (heating the synthesis section with steam). Other conditions can enhance this failure mode, such as : inferior liner material and/or weld quality ; presence of chloride and/or sulphur in the porous oxide layer ; an increased gap between the liner plates and the shell ; and large number of pressure cycles (start/stops).

11.5 / 11.5 184 BACK Safurex Corrosion Resistance Low overall cost Low weight BACK Plasma Arc Welding (PAW) Plasma.arc welding (PAW) is a advanced version of the gas tungsten arc welding (GTAW). GTAW has a free-burning arc, which is unstable and tends to wander in the low current range. With increase in current, the arc power increases and the arc diameter also increases. This leads to a lack of concentrated power in the workpiece, which results in a bigger seam and a larger heataffected zone. Unlike GTAW-welding torches, PAW uses a constricting nozzle and employs two separate gas flows, which give rise to a concentrated plasma arc having a narrow

columnar shape. The plasma column is now stabilized along the axis of the electrode and is more intense than the GTAW-welding arc. The column temperature in PAW is 10,000-24,000 K as compared to 8,000-18,000 K in case of GTAW BACK Process Design Type of Reactor : Plug Flow Reactor Density of Inlet Liquid Density of Inlet Gas : 990-1130 Kg/m3 : 114.7-126 Kg/m3 Operating Temperature : 170.2 C at inlet & 183 C at outlet Flow Rate of Inlet Gas: 198 m3/hr
