51317--9760-Chemical Evaluation of Corrosion Product from Known Sources

Laboratory exposure testing of carbon steel to water from different regions of the United States, with varying chemistries and chloride content. The results of chemical analyses conducted in the laboratory, including elemental analysis by SEM/EDS and analysis by x-ray diffraction are correlated to water chemistry.

Those working in corrosion consultation are often asked to opine on the source and timeframe of corrosion and may only have the corroded samples to work with and a limited history of the service life without access to reference samples of corrosion product produced from known exposure. Many literature sources present case studies of corrosion occurring in a variety of environments where the mechanism of corrosion is deduced based on prior experience and literature surveys but the chemistry of the environment leading to the corrosion is either unknown or not discussed. The work to be presented involves laboratory exposure testing of carbon steel to waters originating from different regions throughout the United States with varying chemistries and chloride levels. The results of laboratory chemical analyses including elemental analysis by SEM/EDS and analysis by x-ray diffraction will be correlated to the water chemistry.

Key words: corrosion, chloride, tap water, SEM, EDS, scanning electron microscopy, energy dispersive x-ray spectroscopy, XRD, x-ray diffraction
