MICROBIOLOGICALLY INFLUENCED CORROSION FAILURES OF AUSTENITIC STAINLESS STEEL WELDS

The study described examined the microstructure, ferrite content and sensitization of the heat affected zones of twelve austenitic stainless-steel weldments with reported pitting corrosion. Eleven of the welds exhibited microbiologically influenced corrosion (MIC) or MIC chloride-assisted pitting attack.
