Abstract
Well-designed test rigs allow the systematic control and evaluation of many variables affecting corrosion processes and corrosion rates. They provide a relatively simple screening procedure for determining possibly favorable corrosion control water treatment strategies. They cannot, however, be used as a substitute for tap water monitoring. The better the pipe loop mimics the conditions it is intended to model, the more applicable the test results are likely to be.
