Abstract:

Exposures were conducted for 30, 60, and 90 days in aerated seawater with and without continuous addition of 0.05 milligram per liter sulfide ion and 0.10 milligram per liter ferrous ions from ferrous sulfate on Alloys C70600 90-10 copper-nickel, C71500 70-30 copper-nickel, C72200 85-15 copper-nickel plus chromium, and C68700 aluminum brass. All alloys were susceptible to sulfide-induced corrosion. The ferrous sulfate was sufficient to completely counteract the sulfide-induced corrosion of all alloys except Alloy C72200.
