Different Forms of Corrosion in Industries

Singh, Raghuvir (2011) Different Forms of Corrosion in Industries. In: lndustrial Corrosion and Protection in Coastal & Other Environments, Feb - 2011, HIT.



Corrosion is an inevitable process which causes degra-dation of metals/ alloys when exposed to the environment. It causes huge economic losses in terms of maintenance and repair cost, unplanned shutdowns of plant, loss of costly products due to leakage. Besides this, aesthetic loss, contamination of the product, safety and human loss are important. According to a survey conducted by federal highway authority (FHWA) of USA and MACE, direct corrosion costs were estimated to be about 137 billion dollars annually due to all sectors in United States of America. Corrosion losses are roughly approximated to be about 1.5 lakhs crore due to various sectors in India.
