  • About the Edition

    Alloy 600, the material used for pressurized water reactor steam generator tubing, is susceptible to environmentally assisted stress corrosion cracking. Intergranular stress corrosion cracking (IGSCC) attacks the tubes in areas of high residual stress, and in crevice regions. No method has been successfully developed to monitor steam generator tubing in-situ for crack initiation and growth. Essentially all available published IGSCC crack growth data for alloy 600 is based on non-tubing material. Although it is very likely that the current data base is applicable to tubing processing, differences between tube and other geometries make a comparison between tubing and other data important for verification purposes. However, obtaining crack initiation and growth data from tubing is difficult due to the geometry and the thin wall thickness.

    Predicting Susceptibility of Alloy to Intergranular Stress Corrosion Cracking Using a Modified Electrochemical Potentiokinetic Reactivation Test. Detection of Sensitization and Intergranular Corrosion of Fe-Cr-Ni Alloys. High Temperature Materials and Processes Online publication date: 1-Jan Resources.   Chloride stress corrosion cracking (CSCC) is a type of intergranular corrosion. Chloride stress corrosion involves selective attack of a metal along its grain boundaries. It occurs in austenitic stainless steel under tensile stress in the presence of oxygen, chloride ions and high temperature.

Stress corrosion crack detection in alloy in high temperature caustic Thesis (Nucl. E.)--Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Dept. of Nuclear Engineering, The mechanisms of intergranular attack (IGA) and intergranular stress corrosion cracking (SCC) of Alloy are investigated in high temperature sodium hydroxide environments contaminated with impurities such as carbonate, sulfate, silicate, magnetite, and chromic oxide.

Results show that caustic alone can cause both IGA and SCC. When Alloy is tensile-stressed, acoustic activity is high, consistent with the propagation of stress corrosion cracks. On the contrary, however, burst energies and amplitudes are kept low with Alloyon which no crack has developed.

Stress corrosion cracking (SCC) crack initiation and crack growth rates (CGR) were measured in mill-annealed alloy (UNS N) tubing as a function of the stress intensity factor (K) in 10% caustic at °C. Tests were conducted using internally pressurized smooth and precracked tubing.

Improved resistance to caustic stress corrosion cracking can be given to Inconel by heat treating it at oC to oC, depending upon prior solution treating temperature. Other problems that have been observed with Inconel include wastage, tube denting, pitting, and intergranular attack.

The IGSCC in high-temperature water is often referred to as primary water stress corrosion cracking (PWSCC). The SCC of Inconel can be mitigated to some extent by a thermal treatment at about °C for > 10 h after a high-temperature mill anneal (MA) solution treatment. Inconel will undergo stress corrosion cracking (SCC) at grain boundaries when subjected to a high stress and exposed to water without oxygen at high temperature.

Very few service failures have occurred but extensive intergranular cracking has also occurred in plants that experienced denting. All of these cracks were from the primary side. Alloy tubing has been widely used to transport high temperature coolant in nuclear power steam generators.

Such tubing has frequently been found to undergo stress corrosion cracking in the steam generators of nuclear power stations particularly in areas where the where the tubing is supported mechanically [8, 9].

Stress corrosion crack detection in alloy in high. Surface initiated cracks caused by environmental cracking of series SS and some Ni-based alloys under the combined action of tensile stress, temperature and an aqueous chloride environment.

The presence of dissolved oxygen increases cracking propensitey. The environmental factors that increase the cracking susceptibility include higher temperatures, increased chloride content, lower pH, and higher levels of tensile stress.

Temperature is an important variable. When stainless steels are fully immersed, it is rare to see chloride stress corrosion cracking at temperatures below 60 °C ( °F). Chloride stress corrosion cracking in austenitic stainless steel • Operation involves high temperature excursions.

Susceptibility should be determined by However, no data were found that could be used to predict the time required for crack initiation by localised corrosion in real structures.

The same metallurgical state had been shown to be especially prone to caustic embrittlement at high temperature. It seems that the slow strain-rate test, as performed in this investigation, can be used as a sensitive method to detect variations in the susceptibility to environmentally induced degradation of Alloy in high temperature caustic solutions.
