Results of laboratory testing of a new technology for mitigating galvanic corrosion. Incorporated into a device, referred to as the galvanic corrosion inhibiting coupling (GCIC) or bi-electrode device (BED), it creates an ohmic potential drop within the pipe and minimizes the polarization of the dissimilar metals.
Alloy 625 (UNS N06625) is an austenitic solid solution strengthened nickel-chromium-molybdenum alloy containing niobium. The high alloy content of alloy 625 enables it to withstand a wide variety of severe corrosive environments. In mild environments, such as ambient atmosphere, fresh and seawater, neutral salts and alkaline media, there is almost no attack.
