CORROSION PRODUCTS OF IRON AND THEIR RELATION TO CORROSION IN STEAM GENERATING EQUIPMENT

This paper summarizes the results of a series of investigations of the reactions of mild steel with boiler water conducted as a basis for determining the possibilities of avoiding a serious pitting problem in the generating tubes of Naval boilers. The reaction of iron with water and oxygen can give rise to one or more of the oxides or hydroxides. The reaction of protective oxide film at temperature with the surroundings is explained.
