Title: Corrosion of aluminium in pure water and dilute solutions.
Authors: Berzins, A
Evans, JV
Lowson, RT
Issue Date: Jul-1973
Publisher: Australian Nuclear Science and Technology Organisation
Abstract: An investigation into the corrosion of aluminium in flowing near-neutral water at 50 C is reported. The corrosion rate passed through a minimum as the pH was changed from pH 5.0 to 8.0. The pH at the point of minimum corrosion was sensitive to atmosphere, being highest in oxygen-saturated water. The corrosion rate was reduced and spallation of the oxide film prevented by saturating the water with oxygen.
