Chromium oxide analysis for steel pipe corrosion
Generally speaking, each element in seamless or ERW steel pipe would finally lead to different troubles during the corrosion process. Thus, we should figure out the characters so that we can protect our tubes from the damage.
Chromium oxide is particularly sensitive to chlorides. Corrosion will be accelerated in coastal areas with salt-spray exposure, and in areas where de-icing salts are used during winter. So it is necessary when we choose stainless steel pipe for this situation as we have to protect the pipe from damage from these elements. And for food and chemical industries, components for the chemical and food industries have high chromium content to compensate for regular exposure to chlorine, salt, and other corrosive substances. So choosing the suitable steel pipe according to the relative working environment is very important.
