Hi,
I'm an operations engr. at a fertilizer company in Pakistan and these days I am involved in the pickling and passivation of carbon steel pipelines (will be used for steam service)...till now we have performed degreasing of the pipelines, I would like to share the procedure which is as follows
1.Air blowing for removing foreign particles
2.Flushing with potable water + leak test
3.Degreasing with Sodium Metasilicate + Tri Sodium Phosphate + Soap
4.Rinsing with demin. water
5.Pickling with 3% Citric Acid + ABF + Rodine 31A
6.Rinsing
7.Passivation with Citric acid + Sodium Nitrite + Sodium Carbonate
8.Final rinsing with slightly alkaline demin. water

Hope you find it helpful
Good Luck Mate!
