Significance and Use

Use of this guide is intended to provide information on electrochemical noise to monitor corrosion on a continuous basis.

This guide is intended for conducting electrochemical noise measurements, both in the laboratory and in-service environments (36).

This technique is useful in systems in which process upsets or other problems can create corrosive conditions. An early warning of corrosive attack can permit remedial action before significant damage occurs to process equipment (37).

This technique is also useful when inhibitor additions are used to control the corrosion of equipment. The indication of increasing corrosion activity can be used to signal the need for additional inhibitor (38).

Control of corrosion in process equipment requires knowledge of the rate or mechanism of attack on an ongoing basis. This technique can be used to provide such information in a digital format that is easily transferred to computers for analysis (39).


1.1 This guide covers the procedure for conducting online corrosion monitoring of metals by the use of the electrochemical noise technique. Within the limitations described, this technique can be used to detect localized corrosion activity and to estimate corrosion rate on a continuous basis without removal of the monitoring probes from the plant or experimental cell.

1.2 This guide presents briefly some generally accepted methods of analyses that are useful in the interpretation of corrosion test results.

1.3 This guide does not cover detailed calculations and methods; rather it covers a range of approaches that have found application in corrosion testing.

1.4 The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as standard. No other units of measurement are included in this standard.

1.5 This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.
