THE IMPACT OF SULFATE-REDUCING BACTERIA ON WELDED COPPER-NICKEL SEAWATER PIPING SYSTEMS

This paper presents a study of the corrosion in various types of experimental and construction welds exposed to estuarine water and synthetic salt solutions containing sulfate-reducing bacteria (SRB) or dissolved sulfides under field and laboratory conditions. The phenomenon under investigation is that of sulfide-induced accelerated corrosion at or near welds in copper-nickel piping systems of ships constructed in estuarine waters.
