PREVENTION OF DAMAGE RESULTING FROM BRINE DRIPPINGS ON TRACK AND STRUCTURES

Prevention of damage resulting from brine drippings on track and structures is discussed in an attempt to find non-toxic brine corrosion inhibitors for use in refrigerator car bunkers. Features of inhibitors for brine corrosion are cited, and tie plate corrosion resistance is also discussed. Copper bearing steel is evaluated, and rail corrosion in tunnels is investigated. It is noted that variation in concentrations of elements such as copper, nickel, and chromium contribute nothing toward increasing the resistance of the steel against liquid brine drippings.
