Corrosion Rates Measurements in Quiescent and Turbulent Flow conditions by using Rotating Cylinder Electrode (RCE)

The rotating cylinder electrode (RCE) is successfully used in a laboratory environment to generate a turbulent flow at the surface of a sample, simulating realistic pipe flow conditions. In this application note, the corrosion rate is measured and compared between quiescent and turbulent flow conditions, while keeping all the other experimental conditions unchanged. The linear polarization (LP) technique was used together with the RCE (with and without rotation).
