The effect of long-term stagnation on copper corrosion by-product release and corrosion rates was studied in pipe-rigs according to the German standard DIN 50931, Part 1. The analysis of the water phase was supplemented by surface analysis of corrosion scales. Copper concentration during stagnation did not follow a solubility process. The characteristic curves obtained can be explained by subsequent copper release and copper refixation processes. Oxygen consumption can be described by the first… CONTINUE READING
