Liquid hydrogen sulfid corrosion

Liquid hydrogen sulfid corrosion

Does anybody have any experience handling liquid hydrogen sulfide?  

RE: Liquid hydrogen sulfid corrosion

Many have experience with hydrocarbon liquid that is rich in hydrogen sulfide.  Do you mean high pressure liquified pure or nearly pure H2S or HC liquid?

RE: Liquid hydrogen sulfid corrosion

By liquid hydrogen sulfide, I mean pure or nearly pure H2S, not HC with H2S contamination.

RE: Liquid hydrogen sulfid corrosion

Dry LHS is a pain to handle, but non-corrosive.
Add a small amount of water and all hell breaks loose.  I built a pump a number of years ago to handle dirty LHS. We used modified alloy 'C' (C-22, 59 or 686) for everything.
