Microbiologically Influenced Corrosion of Stainless Steels by Water used for Cooling and Hydrostatic Testing (10085)

By G. Kobrin et al., originally presented at the 58th Annual International Water Conference, November 3-5, 1997, Pittsburgh, PA. Case histories from experience and the published literature illustrate factors which resulted in microbiologically influenced corrosion (MIC) of stainless steel piping, storage tanks and heat exchangers by waters used for hydrotesting, cooling and other purposes. Practices which will prevent or reduce potential for MIC, including material substitution, are discussed, along with efforts to heighten awareness of the problem.
