Corrosive and Erosive Effects of Acid Mine Waters on Metals and Alloys for Mine Pumping Equipment and Drainage Facilities: Anthracite Region of Pennsylvania

Description: From Summary: "This report presents data on the corrosive and erosive effects of acid mine waters in the anthracite region on metals and alloys for pumping equipment and drainage facilities necessary to remove or control this water. This report is based on field tests conducted cooperatively by the Armco Steel Corp. and the Federal Bureau of Mines from January 1953 to June 1954 to determine the most suitable materials for constructing pumping equipment designed to handle these acid mine waters."

Sea Water Corrosion Test Program

Description: From Introduction: "The first demonstration plant sponsored by the Office of Saline Water was located in Freeport, Texas, and came 'on stream" in 1961. The incoming sea water was deaerated since both Speller (6) and Uhlig (7) recognized that dissolved oxygen was usually the controlling factor in the corrosion of iron stream condensate at temperatures even as high 400 degrees F. The water was acidified prior to daeration with H2SO4 to decompose the carbonates which subsequently would cause scale when the water was heated. After the carbonates were removed, the pH was raised to the neutral point, again to provide a less corrosive environment."

Static Tests of Corrosion Inhibitors for Aluminum and Carbon Steel

Description: The experiments described in this report were performed for two purposes: (1) to find a chemical, or combination of chemicals, that would be effective for inhibiting corrosion of steel in static portions of the Hanford water systems, and (2) as screening tests to select candidate mixtures for further testing to replace sodium dichromate as the inhibitor of aluminum and steel corrosion in the Hanford single-pass reactor cooling water.

Dynamic Corrosion and Mass Transfer of Chrome Steel by Bismuth

Description: From introduction: "This report summarizes the experimental data obtained at the San Pablo Laboratory on the corrosion of 5% Cr - 0.5% Mo steel by bismuth under conditions that allow mass transfer to occur. The bismuth is circulated through a temperature gradient by means of a thermosiphon loop."

High Temperature Corrosion of Some Metals and Ceramics in Fluorinating Atmospheres

Description: Abstract: The results of this investigation leave little doubt that diffusion of the fluorinating gas along the grain boundaries of the nickel fluoride film to react at the metal-scale interface is the primary mechanism of attack upon pure nickel and its more promising alloys.

In-Pile Radiation Corrosion Experiments with Zirconium, Titanium, and Steel Alloys in 0.17 m UO2SO4 Solutions at 280°C

Description: In-pile loop experiments L-2-15 and L-4-16 were two of a series designed to test the radiation corrosion of Zircaloy-2 and other possible reactor construction materials in UO2SO4 solutions under various conditions of radiation intensities, temperatures, solution compositions, and velocity flow past specimens.

Fundamental Studies of Copper Bimetallic Corrosion in Ultra Large Scale Interconnect Fabrication Process

Description: In this work, copper bimetallic corrosion and inhibition in ultra large scale interconnect fabrication process is explored. Corrosion behavior of physical vapor deposited (PVD) copper on ruthenium on acidic and alkaline solutions was investigated with and without organic inhibitors. Bimetallic corrosion screening experiments were carried out to determine the corrosion rate. Potentiodynamic polarization experiments yielded information on the galvanic couples and also corrosion rates. XPS and FTIR surface analysis gave important information pertaining inhibition mechanism of organic inhibitors. Interestingly copper in contact with ruthenium in cleaning solution led to increased corrosion rate compared to copper in contact with tantalum. On the other hand when cobalt was in contact with copper, cobalt corroded and copper did not. We ascribe this phenomenon to the difference in the standard reduction potentials of the two metals in contact and in such a case a less noble metal will be corroded. The effects of plasma etch gases such as CF4, CF4+O2, C4F8, CH2F2 and SF6 on copper bimetallic corrosion was investigated too in alkaline solution. It was revealed that the type of etching gas plasma chemistry used in Cu interconnect manufacturing process creates copper surface modification which affects corrosion behavior in alkaline solution. The learning from copper bimetallic corrosion studies will be useful in the development of etch and clean formulations that will results in minimum defects and therefore increase the yield and reliability of copper interconnects.

Applied Potential Corrosion of Aluminum and 18-8 Stainless Steel Alloys

Description: Introduction: In anticipation of the design of equipment for heat transfer tests, a series of short exposure corrosion tests was initiated in an effort to determine the order of magnitude of the corrosion involved. Information was required on the effect on corrosion rates of applying a potential between two concentric tubes, the annulus between them containing condensate water.
