Online Technique To Mitigate The Risks That Limit Expander Reliability.
Expander reliability has been limited by flow path erosion, corrosion, and deposition. Through root cause determination of the failures and laboratory testing, advances in machine designs and online monitoring and cleaning techniques have been developed. This paper explains the root causes of erosion, corrosion, and deposition and includes recommended online monitoring and cleaning methods.
