Flow Accelerated Corrosion – several steps to prevent failures

Piping failures caused by Flow Accelerated Corrosion (FAC) have occurred at both nuclear and fossil-fuel power plants, several with fatal consequences. For reference purposes, FAC is a type of erosion/corrosion that may affect a number of systems in modern power plants. Increases in flow rates associated with larger units and improved oxygen control have provided
