Common refinery reliability issues include:

  • Corrosion under insulation
  • Cooling water corrosion
  • CO2 corrosion
  • Oxidation
  • H2/H2S corrosion
  • Sulfuric acid corrosion

Silcolloy® and Dursan® offer increased corrosion resistance in extreme conditions:

  • High heat capability up to 1000 c
  • High durability
  • Hydrophobic, moisture resistant
  • Non adsorptive to H2S and other sulfur compounds

SilcoTek® coatings can be found in many refinery operations:


  • Catalytic reforming
  • Amine treating
  • Alkylation
  • Flare sampling
  • CEMS/analyzers
  • Process sampling
