Resistencia al desgaste erosivo-corrosivo de aceros austeníticos fermanal
Aperador, W. (William) | 2013-11-05
We obtained austenitic alloys of the Fe-Mn-Al, Fe in the range (4.9~11.0 wt% Al) - (17.49~34.3 wt% Mn) -(0, 43 ~ 1.25 wt% C), which were melted in an induction furnace from high purity materials. The alloys were evaluated with respect to corrosion, wet erosion and corrosion-erosion at an impact angle of 90°. For the evaluation of corrosion a solution composed of 0.5 M NaCl and silica particles with size between 210 to 300 microns was used in order to analyze the effect of aluminum and manganese content in the resistance to erosion and corrosion-erosion of these alloys. To characterize the corrosion, response technique was used by potentiodynamic polarization curves and using the same technique as Tafel extrapolation, the microstructural characterization by scanning electron microscopy (SEM), and the composition of corrosion products were analyzed using diffraction of X-rays (XRD).
