Hydrogen sulfide corrosion is a well known and documented problem in wastewater collection and treatment systems throughout the world. The presence of hydrogen sulfide . can lead to rapid and extensive damage to concrete and metal sewer pipe and tanks, mechanical equipment used in the transport and treatment of wastewater, and electrical control and instrumentation systems. Unfortunately, such problems are rarely brought to the attention of the municipality until a catastrophic failure occurs such as street collapses orsewer blockages resulting from sewer pipe failure, or complete deterioration ofstructural and mechanical components at wastewater treatment facilities. Wastewater systems suffering from hydrogen sulfide corrosion often require costly, premature replacement or rehabilitation of pipes, manholes, tanks, pump s~tions and other mechanical equipment. Electrical components, instrumentation systems, and ventilation units are particularly vulnerable to attack by hydrogen sulfide… Get the article to read more.
