In order to simplify the measurement of electrochemical noise in field applications, three identical electrodes, one acting as reference electrode (RE), are often used. In this work, a measurement scheme, which employs two REs is proposed, which can reduce the error due to the RE's noise. An example of its implementation is also presented.
Electrochemical corrosion rate probes have been constructed and tested along with mass loss coupons in an air plus water vapor and a N2/O2/CO2 plus water vapor environment. Temperatures ranged from 200º to 700ºC. Results show that electrochemical corrosion rates for ash-covered mild steel are a function of time, temperature and process environment.
The corrosion process of carbon steel in the presence of silica sand deposit in chloride-containing solution at 30 °C was monitored by use of electrochemical noise (EN). Results demonstrated that electrochemical noise with recurrence quantification analysis is useful for monitoring localized under deposit corrosion.
