Geothermal corrosion - Fact Sheet 1 (FS1) - Which metals are more sensitive to geothermal corrosion?

Abbreviation
Geothermal corrosion - Fact Sheet 1 (FS1)
Valid from
01/06/2018

Information provider
BRANZ Limited
Information type
Fact sheet
Format
PDF

Description

BRANZ conducted field trials in Rotorua to examine how different metals corrode in geothermal environments. Identical samples were also exposed to a marine environment for comparison.

Copper and mild steel suffered serious corrosion in the Rotorua exposure sites, and zinc did too where concentrations of sulphur-containing gases were high.

Aluminium and stainless steel corroded more slowly in a geothermal environment than a marine environment.
