EFFECT OF TEMPERATURE ON CORROSION OF CARBON STEELBOILER TUBES IN DILUTE SODUIM CHLORIDE SOLUTION

Abstract

The corrosion behavior of carbon steel at different Temperatures and in water containing different sodium chloride concentrations under 3 bar pressure has been investigated using weight loss method . The carbon steel specimens were immersed in water containing (100,400,700,1000PPM) of NaCl solution and under temperature was increased from (90-120ºC) under pressures of 3 bar. The results of this investigation indicated that corrosion rate increased with NaCl concentrations and Temperature.
