Tuberculation Corrosion in Industrial Effluents

Tuberculation in waste water has long been a concern. Causes are an adverse mixture of water chemistry, construction materials, microbiological attack, and flow rate. Low velocity permits particulates and corrosion products to form deposits. Accumulated deposition leads to partial or complete blockage of pipelines, trapping of pigs, under deposit corrosion, and tuberculation. Tuberculation reduces flow rate. This article discusses tuberculation and presents a case study.
