H.Lara-Ordaz, E. Bolaños-Rodríguez y J.M. Ramírez-Hernández. Evaluation of the Corrosion Behavior in the SAE 1018 Carbon Steel Pipelines that Carry Potable Water Applying Acquisition and Data Processing. ECS Transactions-Montreal, QC, Canadá, Volume 35 ISSN 1938-5862 (Print)
This work deals with the monitoring of physical variables influencing the corrosion process suffered by SAE 1018 carbon steel pipelines used potable water supply in a region of Hidalgo State, Mexico, by data acquisition card (DAQ) from four sensors: conductivity, pH, chloride concentration, and temperature supported by a graphical user interface through LabView 9.0. The obtained mains results show the potable water is not the cause of the possible faults or cracking in the carbon steel pipelines.
