Film Forming Amines and their Applications in the Power Plant Industry

Introduction Use of Film Forming Amines (FFA) or Film Forming Amine Product (FFAP) is a growing trend in the power industry for maintenance of boiler systems. Case study literature suggests FFAPs offer protection from corrosion, reduce corrosion product transport, provide smooth heat transfer surfaces, and protect equipment during shutdown or layups. FFAPs can be used…
