Stainless steel tubing on oil and gas platforms is used in
process instrumentation and sensing, as well as chemical inhibition,
hydraulic lines, impulse lines and utility applications,
over a wide range of temperature, flow and pressure conditions.
Unfortunately, all over the globe, including the Gulf of
Mexico (GOM), the North Sea, the China Sea and so on, corrosion
of 316 stainless steel tubing has been observed.
