Title: Steam surface condenser tubes: Watch out for sneaky corrosion

Abstract

Using case histories, several of the most problematic corrosion mechanisms involving steam surface condenser tubes and the general chemistry behind them are discussed. They include steam-side and water-side corrosion. Examples of stress corrosion cracking and inlet-end erosion-corrosion also are given.
