Enhancement of corrosion resistance of the cooling systems in desalination plants by green inhibitor

Eric Guibal

Abstract

Taraxacum officinale extract (toe) has been tested for preventing the corrosion of cooling systems in desalination plants. The inhibition of corrosion effects has been characterized by chemical and electrochemical methods (Mass loss, potentiodynamic polarization and electrochemical impedance spectroscopy) and surface observations. tests on cooling systems were carried out in seawater environment. the presence of toe in the re-circulation loop decreases the corrosion of carbon steel by adsorption of toe compounds on the surface of metal pipes. the optimum toe concentration was reached at 400 mg L −1 and the inhibition efficiency was higher than 94%. TOE allowed increasing the energy barrier of the corrosion process. SEM, FT-IR and UV spectra observations confirmed that TOE prevents corrosion attacks at the surface of the pipes. HPLC analyses identified the presence of saccharides, organic acids, phenol antioxidant and caffeic acid derivatives in TOE, which may be the active promoters of corrosion inhibition.
