The NETL corrosion test facility is completely equipped to study the corrosion of materials under conditions that range from atmospheric corrosion to the severe environments of industrial and power plants.
- Severe Environment Corrosion Erosion Facility (SECERF) - The SECERF is a multi-lab, modular facility that allows researchers to safely examine the performance of materials under severely corrosive and/or erosive environments similar to those that exist in fossil fuel fired power plants and in gasifiers.
- Corrosion laboratory with computer-controlled potentiostats, galvanostats, electrochemical impedance spectroscopy, critical pitting temperature, critical crevice corrosion and critical pitting potential systems.
- Autoclaves and high-pressure chambers for elevated-temperature electrochemical and corrosion studies.
- Electrochemically controlled wear-corrosion test systems including pin-on-disk, slurry erosion-corrosion, sliding wear-corrosion, abrasive wear corrosion, and single scratch tests.
- Environmentally-induced cracking system to evaluate stress corrosion cracking, hydrogen embrittlement and corrosion fatigue.
