Accurate Corrosion Rates from State of the Art Software 

Ammonite Corrosion Engineering has corrosion software that provides accurate corrosion rates in all oil and gas production, refining, gas treating and transportation facilities. The software used is state of the art with the latest modelling algorithms. The software’s results have also been proven in extensive laboratory corrosion testing carried out by the software company laboratories. The laboratory has also assisted our clients in performing comprehensive simulations of corroding heat exchangers and vessels yielding precise corrosion rates under several operating modes. 

Corrosion Testing 

Ammonite offers corrosion testing of clients’ specific fluid conditions at our affiliated laboratory, Cormetrics  in Calgary. Cormetrics has more than 10 years experience is simulating field corrosion conditions and performing lab corrosion tests. Alternatively, corrosion testing for high temperatures and pressures may be arranged at a world class corrosion laboratory in Houston. This laboratory has specialized testing apparatus to simulate corrosion in refining conditions such as fractionation, distillation and hydrotreating.  

Advanced Corrosion Management Software 

Through a Corrosion Engineering partner, Ammonite can offer advanced corrosion management software that provide corrosion rates in real time. Review your needs with us and we would be happy to review options for you.
