Corrosion does happen in petroleum refinery and it may be one of the biggest problems that need to be taken care of to avoid losses. One of the corrosion types is due to the hydrogen attack or high temperature hydrogen attack (HTHA). HTHA is a type of damage that basically occurs in low-alloy and carbon steels pipes which is actually being exposed to high pressure gas at high temperature for long periods of time, thus, resulting the formation of cracks as well as loss in strength of the stee.
