Corrosion Inhibitor Stick (Type A)


Corrosion Inhibitor Stick Type A is water dispersible and oil-soluble sticks that contain a blend of Imidazolines which have excellent filming characteristics and low emulsion tendencies. This unique blend gives effective corrosion control for most oil field corrosion problems.


Corrosion Inhibitor Stick Type A can primarily be used to control corrosion problems found in producing oil and gas well systems. Corrosion Inhibitor Stick Type A can be used to treat hard-to-reach areas. Dead areas such as the annulus space above the packer, rat-holes, or the bottom of water supply tanks may be easily treated with Corrosion Inhibitor Stick Type A.


The number of Corrosion Inhibitor Stick Type A required is based on the volume of total fluid produced (oil or condensate plus water). Field experience indicated that for most corrosive environments the best results are achieved by using a larger initial slug treatment (80 PPM daily) until the problem is under control then reduce to smaller periodic treatments (40 PPM daily) thereafter. EXAMPLE: An initial slug treatment of 80 PPM would require approximately 0.67 lbs or Corrosion Inhibitor Stick Type A per 24 BBL (1000 gallons) of total fluid produced.
