  2. 2. Corrosion testing of heat exchanger tubing

    Author : Ulf Kivisäkk; KTH; []
    Keywords : corrosion testing; heat exchanger; stainless steels; general corrosion; immersion testing; activation; stress corrosion cracking; constant load; u-bends; relaxation; dewpoint corrosion;

    Abstract : Heat exchanger tubes are commonly made from stainless steel.In a heat exchanger both the process fluid and the cooling orheating media can be corrosive. It is therefore important to beable to select materials that do not suffer from corrosion.Current methods in this area, however, suffer from limitationsand shortcomings. READ MORE
