On a offshore facility, what are the most vulnerable equipment for erosion?
Confirm to permanently remove your answer!
The vulnerability for erosion of any equpment depends on sudden change in flow direction, high flow velocities due to high volumetric flowrates or by flow restrictions.
Below list1 is suggested as a rough guide to identify which components are most vulnerable to erosion (the first on the list being most likely to erode):
