Abstract:

Three proprietary testers were evaluated the National District Heating Association Corrosion Tester, the Bureau of Mines Condensate-Corrosion Tester, and the Crest Instrument Company Corrosometer probe. An NCEL tester was also evalu-ATED. The BuMines tester, Corrosometer or locally fabricated and evaluated nipple or coupon testers will give an adequate indication of the rate and magnitude of corrosion although facilities required for evaluating specimens may preclude the use of the latter type of tester. Where it is desired to monitor the effects of corrosion inhibition treatment andor to observe results of operational changes in less than 30 days, the Corrosometer type instrument is to be preferred. The other testers require a minimum of 30 days for a reliable answer. An additional advantage of the BuMines tester is the fact that the cause of corrosion can often be determined by the type of corrosion such as pitting and channeling.
