Study on temperature dependence of corrosion of stainless steel in the metal ion containing nitric acid

Ueno, Fumiyoshi  ; Irisawa, Eriko ; Abe, Hitoshi 

The reprocessing components made of stainless steel appear intergranular corrosion in boiling nitric acid solution containing high oxidizing metal ions derived from spent nuclear fuel. In this paper, to clarify the corrosion mechanism in this environment, temperature dependence of corrosion rate of a stainless steel in boiling 3 molar nitric acid with added pentavalent vanadium was studied. As the results of investigation of the temperature dependence of the corrosion rate of the heat transfer surface using estimated temperature from a boiling curve, it was found that there was no effect of heat flux on corrosion rate because the dependence was consistent between heat transfer condition and non-heat-transfer. Also it was found that the activation energy was different between the boiling conditions of about 378 K or more and the non-boiling conditions of below 378 K.
