Organic amines are corrosion control agents that increase pH and scavenge corrosive contaminants. Dimethylethanolamine (DMEA), for example, is a common corrosion inhibitor that eliminates dissolved CO2 and helps control pH in industrial boilers and nuclear power plants. Amines are also effective as hydrogen sulfide scavengers in oil and gas production and processing. On-site monitoring for amines can help maintain appropriate corrosion protection, extending system lifetime and avoiding costly corrosion-induced shutdowns and failures.
