Corrosion Monitoring of Critical Service Pipelinesby Bruce A. Bennett, Heat Exchanger Systems Inc, Boston, MA, USA,
Abstract: Corrosion, including microbiologically influenced corrosion (MIC), is receiving much attention as a significant piping material performance concern particularly for critical service pipelines such as safety related nuclear power plant piping systems. Pipeline owners are concerned about the impact of corrosion and piecemeal inkind repair efforts on operating and maintenance costs. Owners would show good judgment by taking a cost-effective approach to resolving their piping system corrosion issues. A corrosion monitoring program and corrective measures evaluation plan are recommended tools to assist the pipeline owner in making informed decisions to resolve corrosion problems. These studies also become source documents which help management understand the rational which supported the selected corrective measure.
