Abstract: An integrated study of the effect of IFKhAN-92 on steel pickling in sulfuric acid solutions has been carried out. The inhibitor studied significantly reduces the corrosion rate of the metal but does not hinder the scale removal. It has been shown that the electrochemical component of the scale pickling process is described by Erofeev’s equation of heterogeneous kinetics.
