Failure Analysis of Type 1.4301 Stainless Steel in a Cooling Water System
- 125 Downloads
Pitting of Type 1.4301 stainless steel pipe in a brackish cooling water system was studied. The results showed that pitting of the Type 1.4301 stainless steel occurred when the water temperature was more than 40 °C, and the introduction of Fe2+ or Fe3+ with concentrated chloride ions led to more severe corrosion in this cooling water system.
