Mitigating Corrosion with a Digital Twin

Published in the Q4 2020 issue of PTQ Magazine, this article discusses how data-driven engineering helps engineers to identify ways to improve predictions of corrosion.

This joint article between KBC and OLI Systems discusses how corrosion control measures can help to improve the performance of operating units and possibly reduce the need for heat exchanger bundle changes. There are two case studies that support the use of a digital twin in helping to identify corrosion issues. The energy and chemical industries can reduce financial losses due to corrosion by using the proper tools to monitor and improve corrosion prediction.
