Corrosion Behavior of Low Nickel Alloy High Strength Steel in Seawater Containing Sulfate-Reducing Bacteria

Abstract:

Article Preview

Corrosion behaviors of low nickel alloy high strength steel (LNAHSS) was studied by electrochemical impedance spectroscopy and scanning electron microscopy when the coupons of LNAHSS were exposed to the seawater culture media. As the results, LNAHSS was uniformly corroded in the fresh sterilized culture medium in a mode of active dissolution; in the culture medium with sulfate-reducing bacteria (SRB), LNAHSS was protected by the iron sulfides layer to some extent in the early stage of exposure, but severely localized corrosion subsequently occurred resulting from the localized breakdown of iron sulfides layer. So, in risks estimation, special precautions should be taken when LNAHSS serves in the environments containing SRB as the localized area can become the tress raiser.
