MINIMISING CORROSION OF AUXILIARY TUBULAR HEAT EXCHANGERS USED IN SEA WATER COOLING SYSTEMS

This paper gives practical advice based on many years experience by the authors' company in the design and manufacture of heat exchangers operating with sea water as the cooling medium. The various materials commonly used in their construction are discussed in relation to the several types of corrosion which predominate the causes of service failure. The paper comments on certain aspects of design, installation and operation which minimise the risk of corrosion and concludes that in practice the incidence of failure is small.
