Corrosion has caused various economic problems in the chemical and petrochemical industries over the years. To prevent the rate of corrosion, as well as to maintain various devices, a series of materials are used as inhibitors. If these materials are used, the lifespan of tools and devices will be increased and economic costs will be reduced. In this study, a new inhibitor that can be used instead of hydrazine was used. This inhibitor is called Levoxin-15 and can be used to prevent corrosion caused by oxygen in steam tanks.

Keywords: Hydrazine; Levoxin-15; Cavity Corrosion; Oxygen Depletion; X-ray; Steel Alloy
