Abstract

An electrochemical study was carried out in order to obtain the effects of the turbulent flow condition on the stainless steel corrosion immersed in natural seawater using an electrochemical corrosion technique like electrochemical impedance spectroscopy (EIS). A three-electrode electrochemical glass cell was used to obtain the electrochemical measures, where a cylinder of the AISI 410 stainless steel was used as working electrode, a saturated calomel electrode as reference electrode and a synthesised graphite rod as auxiliary electrode. 24 hours was the total exposure time. In order to control the hydrodynamic conditions a rotating cylinder electrode (RCE) was used and, a scanning electron microscope (SEM) was used in order to obtain the superficial analyses of the metallic surface after tests. The results of the electrochemical techniques shown that at 1000 rpm of the rotation speed, the corrosion rate (CR) increased as the exposure time also increased. In additions, in the other rotations speed (2000, 3000 and 5000 rpm), the CR was affected by the corrosion products formed on metallic surface. t is important to point out that the corrosion morphology found in the steel sample was localized corrosion.
