Abstract The initiation and propagation of crevice corrosion on the BC1 nickel-chromium-molybdenum alloy has been studied galvanostatically in concentrated chloride solution at 120 °C, and the distribution of corrosion damage determined using surface analytical techniques. The distribution of damage was dependent on the applied current and showed an increased tendency to spread across the surface as the applied current was increased. Attempts to induce repassivation by galvanodynamically reducing the current to zero were unsuccessful. Galvanic coupling to a large BC1 counter electrode showed propagation could be maintained by oxygen reduction on the coupled electrode at a slow rate for >1200 h.

The effects of limited remote cathode area on crevice corrosion propagation, repassivation, and anode site reorganization were investigated on AISI 316 stainless steel (UNS S31600) in 0.6 M NaCl at 50°C. Both multiple crevice assemblies and rescaled coupled multi-electrode arrays were utilized. Potentiostatically activated crevices were subjected to conditions that limited propagation by either: (i) stepping the potential downward below the repassivation potential, (ii) performing a downward sca...

Abstract Corrosion test and surface analysis were conducted in the H 2 S–Cl – environments to elucidate the role of alloyed molybdenum on the corrosion resistance of Ni–Cr–Mo–Fe alloys. The alloyed molybdenum improves the localized corrosion resistance. The surface film is of double layers which comprise sulfide including molybdenum and chromium oxide. However, the Ni–Mo–Fe alloy also shows good corrosion resistance in the H 2 S–Cl – environment. This good corrosion resistance is considered to b...

The composition of anodically grown oxide films on Alloy 22, a Ni-Cr-Mo(W) alloy, has been investigated in 5 mol l−1 NaCl at room temperature using X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy and time-of-flight secondary ion mass spectrometry. For applied potentials up to 0.2 V (vs Ag/AgCl (saturated KCl solution)), a Cr(III) oxide barrier layer develops at the alloy/oxide interface accounting for the excellent passivity demonstrated to prevail in this potential region by previous electrochemical impedance...

a b s t r a c t Electrochemical and surface analytical techniques (X-ray photoelectron and Auger spectroscopies) were used to characterize the influence of potential on the properties of the oxide film formed on the Hybrid BC- 1 (a Ni-Cr-Mo) alloy in chloride solutions containing bicarbonate. In the passive region the film possesses the expected bilayer structure with a Cr(III)-dominated barrier layer containing mixed oxidation states of Mo and an outer dominantly-hydroxide layer. At more positi...

Abstract The crevice corrosion kinetics of alloys C-22, C-22HS and HYBRID-BC1 was studied in several chloride solutions at 90 °C. The crevice corrosion resistance of the alloys increased with PREN (Pitting Resistance Equivalent Number), which is mainly affected by the Mo content in the alloys. The crevice corrosion kinetics of the three alloys was analyzed at potentials slightly higher than the repassivation potential. Crevice propagation was controlled by ohmic drop in the more dilute chloride ...

Abstract Crevice corrosion of alloy-22 was studied galvanostatically (10–200 μA) at 120 °C in 5 M NaCl. Corrosion damage was analyzed by confocal laser scanning microscopy to obtain penetration profiles. Three-dimensional images demonstrate that damage morphologies varied with applied current. At low applied currents (⩽70 μA), propagation predominantly leads to penetration into the alloy, whereas at higher applied currents (>70 μA) corrosion damage spreads across the alloy. Limited penetration d...

Abstract The role of alloyed Mo during transpassive dissolution of four commercially available Ni-based alloys in neutral chloride solution was investigated by atomic emission spectroelectrochemistry. Time-resolved dissolution rates of Ni, Cr, Mo, and Fe were obtained as a function of applied potential. Mo enrichment occurred at the transpassive potentials and redissolved when the potential returned to the passive domain. These results suggest a mechanism of Mo enrichment and release that could ...

Abstract Coupling of metal oxidation in crevice corrosion to both O2 reduction on surfaces external to the crevice and H+ reduction occurring within the crevice, was studied using a galvanostatic crevice corrosion technique in conjunction with weight loss analyses. Results suggest internal H+ reduction is a significant contributor to the crevice corrosion of the studied alloys in 5 M NaCl at 120 °C. Repeat experiments suggest damage can be as much as doubled by H+ reduction. This process, howeve...

Abstract Low temperature plasma nitriding was performed on CrNi-based (AISI 316L), CrMn-based (AISI 202) and nickel-free (P558) austenitic stainless steels. For all the used steels modified surface layers consist mainly of S phase without the precipitation of large amounts of nitrides, and they show enhanced surface microhardness and corrosion resistance in NaCl acqueous solution. The different electrochemical corrosion testing techniques evidence that the increase of corrosion potential may be ...

Abstract The role of acetic acid (HAc) or H + in initiating the crevice corrosion of N80 carbon steel in CO 2 -saturated NaCl solution was studied by weight loss and electrochemical measurements. It is demonstrated that crevice corrosion could be initiated by the concentration difference either HAc or H + between outside and inside the crevice. The corrosion rate inside the crevice becomes higher than that outside the crevice and the total corrosion rate inside and outside the crevice decreases ...

Nickel-based alloys are considered among other candidate materials as engineering barriers of geological repositories due to their excellent corrosion resistance. These alloys possess unique advantages: they may be used in saturated and unsaturated repositories, hosted by practically any rock type, while also compatible with any (or no) backfill, and have minimal impact in other barriers. Alloy-22 (UNS N06022) has been the most studied of this class of alloys for its potential application in the...

The influence of Cu addition (0–4 mass%) on the corrosion behavior of Ni–30Co–16Cr–15Mo alloy in neutral chloride solution is investigated by electrochemical measurements. The results indicate that alloy with 0.5 mass% Cu shows inferior corrosion resistance compared to Cu-free alloy under open-circuit potential, which is possibly ascribed to the galvanic corrosion from the insufficient coverage of Cu on the passive film; a higher fraction of Cu results in a significant improvement on corrosion r...

The electrochemical properties and compositions of passive, transpassive, and re-formed passive oxides on the Ni-Cr-Mo alloys C22 (high Cr/low Mo) and HYBRID BC1 (low Cr/high Mo) have been studied in 5.0M NaCl solutions. At low potentials in the passive region, the oxide was less resistive on BC1 compared to C22, possibly due to the influence of Mo in increasing the number of defects in the oxide. At higher potentials in the passive region, both alloys exhibited similar behaviours and compositio...

Abstract The corrosion behaviour of N80 carbon steel under the coexistence of stress and crevice in the CO 2 -saturated NaCl solution containing acetic acid (HAc) was studied by electrochemical measurements, surface analysis, and stress analysis. It is demonstrated that the corrosion potential of steel shifts negatively and corrosion activity is enhanced with increasing stress. A deep corrosion groove is formed at crevice mouth, which causes stress concentration, increasing the susceptibility to...
