Abstract:

The method utilized a commercial instrument, the Corrater, which measures instantaneous corrosion rates in a conducting media. Laboratory and field tests were conducted on new and used VCI paper to establish the reliability and accuracy of the method. The VCI papers were analyzed by adding a paper sample to the salt solution, stirring to remove the VCI, and noting the decrease in the corrosion rate. The decrease in the corrosion rate was converted to weight of loading grams per square foot by means of the standard curves previously prepared. The results obtained compared favorably with results obtained by other more tedious analytical methods. The method developed has the following advantages utilizes a stable reagent, nontechnical personnel can conduct the test, the instrument is battery operated and the test time is less than one hour.
