Influence of Electromagnetic Treatment on Corrosion Behavior of Carbon Steel and 316L Stainless Steel in Simulated Cooling Water
Abstract: The effect of electromagnetic treatment on corrosion behavior of carbon steel and stainless steel in simulated cooling water was investigated by electrochemical impedance spectroscopy, potentiodynamic polarization techniques and water analysis. It was found that the charge transfer resistance decreased and the corrosion current density increased after electromagnetic treatment for carbon steel electrode, which shows that such treatment promotes corrosion of carbon steel in simulated cooling water. In contrast, the pitting potential of 316L stainless steel electrode rose which revealed that electromagnetic treatment of the experimental water exhibited corrosion inhibition to 316L stainless steel. Reasons for different corrosion behavior of the two metals were discussed.
