Resistance of Stainless Steel to Corrosion in Naturally Occuring Waters (1262)

Reviews behaviour of conventional stainless steels in freshwater, chloride-containing waters and seawater. Included are the austenitic Types 304 and 316 stainless steels, Type 410 and the ferritic 18Cr/2Mo/Ti stainless steels. Factors of importance to consider to minimize localized corrosion in chloride-containing waters are: avoidance of crevices, cathodic protection, high velocity, intermittent exposure and low oxygen level. Also considers welded joints, soft soldered joints and brazed joints (Reprinted from Transactions of the 2nd Spanish Corrosion Congress.)
