Corrosion is a kind of wear and tear that has followed mankind because the very creation of metals hundreds of thousands of years in the past. Corrosion is usually insidious and hidden till outstanding on the worst second of a approach operation. whereas there are lots of how you can attempt to hinder such harm, the optimal keep an eye on technique depends on an early analysis of the issues.

Example text

There were 28 fatalities, as well as the near complete destruction of the NYPRO plant in North Lincolnshire by blast and then fire. This catastrophic explosion has been traced to the failure of a bypass assembly introduced into a train of six cyclohexane oxidation reactors after one of the reactors was removed owing to the development of a leak. 3-mm mild steel plate with 3-mm stainless steel bonded to it, and it developed a vertical crack in the mild steel outer layer of the reactor from which cyclohexane leaked leading to the removal of the reactor.

Guadalajara Sewer Explosion The following corrosion failure was also due to a combination of human errors and shared responsibilities. The sewer explosion that killed 215 people in Guadalajara, Mexico, in April 1992, also caused a series of blasts that damaged 1600 buildings and injured 1500 people. 1. Defects And Failures 37 Fig. 4 Pits in the galvanized water pipe that contributed to the erosion corrosion of the gas line and the subsequent leak in a sewer main that caused the Guadalajara 1992 explosion (7).

Typical cross-sectional shapes of corrosion pits. The practical importance of pitting corrosion depends on the thickness of the metal and on the penetration rate, which could be small. The rate usually decreases with time. Thus, on thin sections pitting may be serious, while on a thick section it might be unimportant. In general, the rate of penetration decreases if the number of pits increases. This is because adjacent pits have to share the available adjacent cathodic area, which controls the corrosion current that can flow.
