    Qingfei MA, Hui HE, Lin JIANG, Qingchang WEN, Xiaolin WEI, Xingyue YONG
    Corrosion Science and Protetion Technology. 2017, 29 (6): 591-596.   DOI: 10.11903/1002.6495.2017.004
    Abstract   HTML   PDF (2038KB)

    The corrosion process and failure mechanism of a new type polyester-modified acrylic polyurethane organic coating in simulated marine environment were studied by accelerated-test. The results show that the gloss loss rate of the polyester-modified acrylic polyurethane coating increased with the accelerated-test cycles. Before and after accelerated-test its adhesion was not obviously changed. During the test, the porosity of the coating gradually increase with time, resulting in the increment of its dielectric constant because of the penetration of the corrosive media into the coating. Finally, the electrochemical impedance decreased with the accelerated-test cycles. However, the electrochemical impedance kept about 108 Ωcm2 after the coated specimens was subjected to eight-cycle acceleration test. It was demonstrated that this coating had better corrosion-resistance and stronger adhesive strength.

    Shuduan DENG, Xianghong LI, Guanben DU
    Corrosion Science and Protetion Technology. 2017, 29 (6): 597-602.   DOI: 10.11903/1002.6495.2016.298
    Abstract   HTML   PDF (903KB)

    The inhibition of 2-mercaptopyrimidine (MP) on the corrosion of cold rolled steel in 0.2 mol/L citric acid (H3C6H5O7) was studied by weight loss, potentiodynamic polarization and electrochemical impedance spectroscopy (EIS) methods. The results show that MP acts as a good inhibitor, and the inhibition efficiency increases with the increase of inhibitor concentration and temperature. The adsorption of MP on the steel surface follows Langmuir isotherm, and is an endothermic process accompanied with the increase of entropy. MP acts as a mixed-type inhibitor, and the inhibition effect may be ascribed to geometry blocking-effect. EIS spectra exhibits the depressed capacitive loop with only one time constant, and the charge transfer resistance increases with the concentration of MP.

    Yan ZHAO, Jianjun GUAN, Feng LIU, Ping LIANG, Congqian CHENG, Jie ZHAO
    Corrosion Science and Protetion Technology. 2017, 29 (6): 603-608.   DOI: 10.11903/1002.6495.2016.301
    Abstract   HTML   PDF (3633KB)

    The corrosion behavior of 304 stainless steel with attachments of Fe-Zn intermetallics was investigated in high temperature water. The microstructure of oxide scales was characterized by scanning electron microscope (SEM), X-ray diffraction (XRD) and synchrotron radiation-grazing incidence X-ray diffraction (SR-GIXRD). The influence of the attachment of Fe-Zn intermetallics on the corrosion performance of 304 stainless steel was discussed. The results show that tiny Fe2O3 oxides and nubbly or sheet-like Fe3O4 particles grow on the stainless steel surface after corrosion in 300 ℃ water. When the stainless steel with the attachment of Fe-Zn intermetallics is corroded in high temperature water, the Fe-Zn intermetallics could transform into ZnO oxides gradually with time, while the formed oxide scales gradually spalled off resulting in the increment of mass loss. When the corrosion time increases to 360 and 480 h, the tiny Fe2O3 oxides are observed, while the mass loss has little change. The thin Fe2O3 oxide film can be characterized using SR-GIXRD instead of XRD.

    Corrosion Science and Protetion Technology. 2017, 29 (6): 609-614.   DOI: 10.11903/1002.6495.2017.081
    Abstract   HTML   PDF (6456KB)

    The microstructure,corrosion resistance properties and corrosion morphology of the 2205 duplex stainless steel aged at 850 ℃ for different time were characterized by means of optical microscope and scanning electron microscope, as well as potentiodynamic polarization measurement and electrochemical impedance spectroscopy. The result showed that: the trace amount of σ phase-precipitates is not obvious harmful to the corrosion resistance of the steel; however, with the increasing σ phase precipitation, it is difficult to form stable passivation film on the steel surface, thus its corrosion resistance decreases obviously; the corrosion pits firstly appeared at the interface of σ phase and matrix, and then expanded to ferrite phase. Besides that, σ phase could also change the electrochemical corrosion morphology characteristics, i.e. the morphology of pits changed from hemispherical pit to seriously destroyed pit with small mouth but large cavity, then transformed into wide- and shallow-bowl like pit.

    Guofei QIU, Xuan ZHAO, Xiaoming JIA, Wei RONG, Xiaohong LIANG
    Corrosion Science and Protetion Technology. 2017, 29 (6): 615-620.   DOI: 10.11903/1002.6495.2017.017
    Abstract   HTML   PDF (2315KB)

    Polydopamine coatings were applied on Mg-alloy AZ31 through immersion the alloy into appropriate solutions of polydopamine for a period of time. The surface morphology, chemical composition and adhesive strength to the substrate of coatings were characterized by SEM and AFM, XPS and tensile test respectively. Then their corrosion performance in a simulated body fluid (SBF) solution was assessed by means of potentiodynamic polarization curves. Results demonstrate that the coating showed not only compact structure, but also high bonding strength; the prepared polydopamine coatings can effectively protect the Mg-alloy from corrosion in the simulated body fluid. The approach presented here would be a simple and effective alternative for Mg-alloy surface modi?cation.

    Corrosion Science and Protetion Technology. 2017, 29 (6): 621-627.   DOI: 10.11903/1002.6495.2017.039
    Abstract   HTML   PDF (5933KB)

    The formation of an intact and dense Cr2O3 scale on the surface of super304H alloy has important influence on its oxidation resistance. It has been found that temperature has a significant effect on the stability of the Cr2O3 scale on super 304H alloy during the steaming process at 620~650 ℃. During oxidation at 620 ℃, the formed Cr2O3 scale covered the matrix completely, while microcracks occurred on the surface of Cr2O3 scale for long term, which facilitated the formation of nodular Fe3O4. When the oxidation temperature reaches 650 ℃, the growth rate of Fe3O4 increased obviously and finally covered the whole alloy surface.

    Corrosion Science and Protetion Technology. 2017, 29 (6): 633-639.   DOI: 10.11903/1002.6495.2017.135
    Abstract   HTML   PDF (5483KB)

    The actual corrosion failure of Al-alloy flanges of pressure relief diaphragm for current transformer (CT) in a coastal power sub-station was investigated in terms of the composition analysis of the failure Al-alloy flange, corrosion morphology observation and analysis of corrosion product as well as the survey of actual service environment characteristics and the examination of electrochemical corrosion behavior the alloy. The results show that the corrosion and stress corrosion cracking (SCC) of the Al-alloy flange of CT pressure release diaphragm did occur in the coastal industrial environment, the corrosion products are mainly aluminum chloride. Cl- and S2- are important environmental factors that cause corrosion failure, and the synergy of Cl- and stress lead to SCC of the Al-alloy flanges. Therefore, flanges should be made of Al-alloys with good resistance to Cl- and S2- induced corrosion as well as to SCC. In addition, the surface anti-corrosion measures should be strengthened. Furthermore, it follows that Al-alloy 7A05 should not be adopted for making the flange in the absence of appropriate protective measures.

    Marine instruments are important tools for marine related investigation, research, development, environmental protection and other marine activities. The characteristics and quality of marine instruments may directly affect the quality and benefit of these activities. Marine biofouling does greatly damage marine monitoring instruments and has a substantial and widely dispersed impact on the instrument performance. Since the maintenance cycle of most marine monitoring instruments is usually from 10 d to 60 d. Marine biofouling has been a major factor in restricting the application of marine instruments. This article introduced the influence of biofouling on the performance of marine monitoring instruments, and also summarized methods for anti-biofouling of the marine monitoring instruments. In the end, the necessity and prospect of anti-biofouling measures for marine monitoring instruments were also discussed.

    Abstract   HTML   PDF (1939KB)

    A motor load test rig was set up for the study of accurate diagnosis of corrosion defects appeared in motor stator coil. With the test rig, the infrared thermal images of a three-phase asynchronous motor under different operation conditions are shot by infrared thermography. The temperature field data and the temperature-frequency curve of the motor stator coil are obtained. By analyzing the data, the defects and insulation changes in the stator winding of the motor induced by corrosion may be acquired in terms of the relevant infrared characteristic and the temperature field variation regulation. The experimental results show that the proposed technique can be used to diagnose whether the stator coil of the three-phase asynchronous motor did suffer from corrosion or not.

    Corrosion Science and Protetion Technology. 2017, 29 (6): 687-690.   DOI: 10.11903/1002.6495.2017.015
    Abstract   HTML   PDF (1665KB)

    An analysis on corrosion induced leakage of low oil heat exchanger in reaction system of hydrogenation unit for coker diesel and catalytic diesel was conducted by means of visual inspection, SEM with EDS and XRD. Results indicated that the corrosion products was ferrous sulfide,and the corrosion type was wet hydrogen sulfide corrosion. The primary cause was that there existed deficiencies in the design of the impingement plate of tube bundle,in this case low oil flowing slowly and hydrogen sulfide gathering, so the tube bundle near the impingement plate was subjected to wet hydrogen sulfide corrosion. Furthermore,with the increasing temperature the reaction activity of hydrogen sulfide of the low oil in heat exchanger increased, thereby the corrosion reaction was accelerated. Finally, the prevention measures were put forward with special emphasis on the improvement of construction for the impingement plate.
