Water corrosivity in Gdansk Bay, Poland, the southern part of the Baltic Sea, was investigated. The analysed region is heavily industrialized, and the coastline is very diverse. Twenty-seven test points along the coastline were selected. Water parameters such as salinity, total dissolved solids content, resistivity, conductivity, oxygenation, pH and corrosion rate were determined. The results of the investigation are presented....
Purpose – The purpose of this paper is to investigate whether the sedimentation of calcareous deposits occurs on cathodically protected steel in Baltic sea water. Design/methodology/approach – Steel electrodes were cathodically polarized in natural Baltic sea water at potential þ0.150 V vs Zn electrode in potentiostatic mode. During exposure chronoamperometric measurements were carried out. After the exposure, the electrode’s surface...
A magnesium anode driving system has been proposed. A PNP driving transistor has been used. Electrochemical testing in 3%NaCl, results and comparison of the driving system and classic direct anode to cathode connection are presented. The driving system reduced the protection current and stabilized the working conditions of the anode. Higher anode efficiency was achieved. Overprotection and hydrogen embrittlement threats were prevented...
