BR Highlighted Article – Pyrophoric Iron Sulfide in Oil and Natural Gas Wastewater Tanks
The danger of pyrophoric iron sulfide (PIS) as a source of ignition in refinery operations is widely recognized. Care is taken to remove accumulated PIS from refinery process equipment before the equipment is opened for maintenance. A number of chemical and mechanical methods are available. The potential for PIS accumulation in natural gas processing lines and equipment is also recognized. PIS is known to be one of the potential components of the “black powder” that causes plugging issues from natural gas wellheads to burners. Black powder is handled with care when exposed to air. It has been known to give off the telltale “white smoke” of PIS oxidation and filter elements loaded with black powder have been known to undergo pyrophoric ignition.
