Instantaneous impedance monitoring of synergistic effect between cavitation erosion and corrosion processes
The most common method of determination of cavitation erosion resistance as well as the magnitude of erosion-corrosion synergistic interaction is based on the weight loss measurements. Nondestructive characterization of installations elements is in most cases impossible to perform. Also, such a measurement does not include local types of failure or alteration of operating conditions. There is an urge to elaborate a method for monitoring...
Investigation of the electrochemical behaviour of AA1050 aluminium alloy in aqueous alkaline solutions using Dynamic Electrochemical Impedance Spectroscopy
The paper presents the electrochemical behaviour of aluminium alloy AA1050 in aqueous alkaline media in the pH range 14–8.5. Electrochemical study was applied in order to obtain comprehensive information on the mechanism and kinetics of the process of anodic dissolution of aluminium, supplemented by monitoring of surface topography using an electron microscope. The corrosion rate of AA1050 increases with increasing concentration...
Evaluation of citric acid corrosion inhibition efficiency and passivation kinetics for aluminium alloys in alkaline media by means of dynamic impedance monitoring
A novel approach is proposed for constructing the adsorption isotherm in corrosion studies, based on a well-known interaction between citric acid and aluminium in alkaline electrolytes. Our approach utilizes the instantaneous impedance measurements via Dynamic Electrochemical Impedance Spectroscopy in galvanostatic mode (g-DEIS). Unlike other common tools, g-DEIS delivers exact information about the concentration required for full...
