An assessment of inhibitor performance on corrosion rate of low carbon steel under flow condition


Akintola B. J*, O. K Otari and Mohammed F. I

The effect of flow velocity on the performance of neem seed oil on corrosion rate of low carbon steel was investigated using the weight loss method. The coupons were flush mounted in inhibited and uninhibited corrosive media for 96 h. The flow velocity was varied for Reynolds numbers of 3705, 3054, 2220 and 734. The result showed that the inhibitor performed very well with time under flow conditions with better performance at laminar flow.
