Description/Abstract:Some of the laboratory and field corrosion tests conducted in both low- and high-salinity brines are presented. Some of the equipment failures due to corrosion and scaing that occurred during laboratory and field tests are also discussed. Laboratory studies included weight-loss, crevice, and pitting corrosion, stress-corrosion cracking, linear-polarization measurements, and corrosion attack of welded materials. The laboratory work was conducted in autoclaves using high-salinity brines at a temperature of 232/sup 0/C and a pressure of 450 psig. Materials were evaluated in both deaerated brines and in brines which contained O/sub 2/, CH/sub 4/, and CO/sub 2/ gases. Materials evaluated include 1020, 4130, COR-TEN/sup 4/ and Mariner steels; 316 L, 430, and E-Brite 26-1 stainless steels; commercially pure titanium, TiCode-12, Ti-0.2%Pd, Inconel 625, and Hastelloy C-276. Field corrosion tests were conducted on brine from the East Mesa (low salinity) and Salton Sea (high salinity) Imperial Valley geothermal fields. (MHR)
