Title: CORROSION OF CARBON STEEL IN WASTE SOLUTIONS CONTAINING MERCURY

Abstract

The corosion behavior of A-285, A-135, A-l06, and A-53 carbon steel was studied in multicomponent simulated waste solutions containing mercury. In the liquid phase, the carbon steels corroded at a very low rate; mercury did not increase the corrosion rate in any of the solutions tested. In the vapor phase and at the vapor-liquid interface, pitting occurred; the pitting was independent of solution compesition, and was caused mainly by the condensation of oxygenated water from the aqueous wastes.
