Corrosion of underground oil tanks

Industrial Lubrication and Tribology

Publication date: 1 June 1950


SOME valuable information on the resistance to underground corrosion of a variety of ferrous and non‐ferrous metals and alloys has resulted from field experiments now being analysed by I. A. Denison and M. Romanoff of the National Bureau of Standards (U.S.A.). In this work, some 3,000 specimens of pipe materials have been examined after being exposed to soil corrosion for periods up to 14 years and the loss of weight and depth of pitting have been measured and interpreted.
