Examples of Investigation/Analysis of Corrosion Accidents/Damage

JFE-TEC accepts requests for investigation and analysis of corrosion problems and corrosion accidents.

Examples of Investigation of Corrosion Accident (1)

"Cause and Countermeasures for Stress Corrosion Cracking (SCC) of Stainless Steel Pipe Buried in Soil"

Sample pipe : SUS303 100 A (3 mmt), wrapped with PVC tape
Use period : Approx. 10 years
Fluid : Steam drain (80-100℃)
Results of Corrosion Analysis
Form of corrosion SCC (stress corrosion cracking) with origin on outside surface
Result of investigation Cl- (chlorine ion) was detected in corrosion product
Cause Leaching of Cl- (chlorine ion) from soil or corrosion prevention tape)
Countermeasures Coating with heat resistant resin, use of high corrosion resistance stainless steel pipe

Examples of Investigation of Corrosion Accident (2)

"Hydrogen Grooving Corrosion in Concentrated Sulfuric Acid Piping"

Sample pipe: STGP 80A
Use period : Several years
Fluid : 98% sulfuric acid, room temperature
Results of Corrosion Analysis
Form of corrosion Hydrogen grooving (grooving corrosion by hydrogen)
Result of investigation Hydrogen gas was generated by very slight corrosion of the piping
Cause Caused by generated hydrogen gas passing position in piping at 12 o'clock
Countermeasure Improve slope of pipe
