Also, their excellent resistance to crevice corrosion and stress corrosion cracking make them also suitable for other hostile environment applications, such as chemical and food processing, medical and marine industries.
Facilities exist to evaluate the susceptibility to hydrogen-induced cracking and sulfide stress corrosion cracking, with electrochemical equipment such as potentiostats and frequency response analyzers used to characterize corrosion reactions and evaluate the efficacy of coatings.
The topics include laser surface melting to repair stress corrosion cracking in weld metal, pulsed laser surface treatment of multilayer gold-nickel-copper coatings to improve the corrosion resistance of components in electronics, liquid impingement erosion resistance, modifying the surface of steel to resist slurry erosion in power plants, and laser surface remelting to improve the erosion-corrosion resistance of nickel-chromium-aluminum-yttrium plasma spray coatings.
The swivel bracket material is susceptible to stress corrosion cracking, and if cracks are present, the rocket catapult can break through the connection point and leave the pilot and the seat in the cockpit during an ejection.
Some utilities have determined that it is more economical to replace pressurizers rather than perform restoration due to issues surrounding the potential for stress corrosion cracking problems in the existing Alloy 600 heater nozzles.
