Electrochemical simulation of the corrosivity of the different industrial marine waters

The corrosivity found in different types of industrial marine waters can be simulated electrochemically when testing stainless steels. One important aspect in this respect is how to make electrical connection to the specimen. The work performed verifies that the most convenient way to perform this is to allow the test specimen to hang in a titanium wire. The work presents the electrochemical representation of the biofilm effect found in natural seawaters, and the oxidation capacity found in chorinated seawaters. The work presents the results from a small round robin test, indicating that the proposed procedures to electrochemically simulate the characteristic of different seawaters, seems to reflect the behaviour in real waters well.
