Description:This is a concise,authoritative guide to the identification and elimination of corrosion in cooling water systems and related equipment-from a leader in the field. Abundant full color photographs of actual failures illustrate the detailed description of each common failure mode presented. Case histories follow each chapter. A wide variety of environments and equipment are presented,including: open and closed systems; recirculating and once-through arrangements; conventional shell-and-tube exchangers and plate heat exchangers; special purpose cooling arrangements; and service water systems. Topics covered include concentration cell corrosion,biologically influenced corrosion,chemical attack,cracking,dealloying,mechanically induced attack,manufacturing defects,graphitic corrosion,exfoliation,and galvanic cells.
