Corrosion Inhibitor Stick (Type C)


Corrosion Inhibitor Stick Type C are water-soluble/ dispersible. They are composed of Amine salts and surfactants in water soluble tubes. This stick is especially effective in preventing CO2 and Hydrogen Sulfide corrosion caused by sulfide reducing bacteria. The result of effective treatment will be reduced corrosion rates, a reduction in iron counts and iron sulfide deposits.


Corrosion Inhibitor Stick Type C are used to control corrosion in gas wells, injection systems and other systems where liquid products are difficult to apply. This product requires no special pump or equipment since it will drop through gas or fluids to reach the corrosive area. Corrosion control is excellent at elevated temperatures (275 degrees Fahrenheit plus) found in deep gas wells.


The number of Corrosion Inhibitor Stick Type C required is based on the severity of the problem being encountered and the volume of water to be treated. The best results are achieved by using an initial slug treatment of 1 stick per 10 barrels of water to be treated. The period of time between treatments will be dictated by the severity of the problem. EXAMPLE: An initial treatment of 24 barrels (1000 gallons) of water would be approximately two sticks.

Note: To successfully control corrosion problems, the inhibitor must have adequate contact time. A minimum of two hours shut-in is recommended for gas wells. This will allow the stick to clean the system and lay down a good inhibitor film.

Safety and Handling

Please review SDS prior to using this product. As with all industrial chemicals, contact with eyes or skin should be avoided. Wash thoroughly with water if contact with skin is made. Sticks should be stored in a cool dry place. Always remove stick from plastic bag or cardboard tube before using. Bag or tube can be used as a glove to avoid contact with hands.
