Abstract

A potentiostatic sweep technique, which had previously been developed, was used to determine the pitting potentials of several stainless-type steels in chloride-containing saline waters. Using 3% chloride as a norm, the effect of temperature and several second anions such as nitrate, hydroxyl, sulphate, carbonate and chromate, have been investigated. The technique gives self-consistant data, whose trends are similar to those reported in the literature using either polarisation techniques, thus supporting its adoption as a routine test method. (A)
