Abstract:

A study was made to determine the feasibility of using sodium nitrite as a corrosion inhibitor in catapult water brake tanks. The initial study yielded favorable results, therefore follow-up work was initiated to gather additional laboratory data as well as evaluate the sodium nitrite inhibitor on an operational aircraft carrier. The laboratory study included testing under simulated conditions to determine methods for reducing crevice corrosion, characterize stress corrosion susceptibility, and optimize inhibitor treatment.
