Corrosion monitoring in power plants – less effort and faster results using electrochemical methods

Nuclear power plant cooling tower

Corrosion of metals in power plants is a commonly occurring phenomenon due to the continuous contact of the metal with a corroding environment. The goal of corrosion management is to use suitable treatment and conditioning of the water to minimize the corrosion rate and the transport of corrosion products within the circuits.

Electrochemical analysis methods are becoming increasingly common for quantifying the corrosion rates. These are far superior to traditional methods, because they provide more detailed information about corrosion phenomena with less effort and time. We are pleased to present the following applications:
