Why Water Heaters and Pipes Corrode

Electrolytic corrosion sometimes called electrolysis and galvanic corrosion, often referred to as two-metal or dissimilar metal Corrosion, are somewhat similar in nature but result from different causes. Electrolytic Corrosion results from the action of an imposed direct current. Galvanic corrosion results from self induced currants which in turn have resulted from the electrical potential between two dissimilar metals in contact.

As apply to piping or structural installations in which copper is a part, electrolytic Corrosion from stray currents can almost be disregarded. The passing of the street railway, with its high amperage direct current, has virtually eliminated the stray current possibility. It has sometimes been thought that grounded telephone or electric power wires my cause electrolytic corrosion, but several investigation who disproved this theory.

For galvanic corrosion to occur, dissimilar metals must be Connected in the presence of an electrolyte. Salt water and acid solutions are excellent electrolytes. A perfect example of a salt solution would be a water softener system installed. Ordinary fresh potable water is a weak electrolyte, and distilled water or condensate, extremely weak electrolytes. Steam will not act as an electrolyte at all. The weaker is electrolyte, the more limited the galvanic action. It should be emphasized that with fresh water, galvanic corrosion is not common often any form of corrosion not clearly understood is wrongly labeled electrolysis, electrolyte take action, or galvanic corrosion.

To study the problem, the various metals have been listed in what is known as the galvanic series. One end of the series is most noble, the other, least Noble. The least noble and includes metals that are I know as anodic toward those further up the scale. This means they are corroded because, when joined two metals higher in the scale, they are electro-negative. The self generated current levels the less noble or and anodic metal to enter the electrolyte and it carries the metal with it. In other words the anode leaches into the solution.

Metals near the more noble are Cathodic and electro-positive with respect to the less noble metals with which they may be joined. This protects them from corrosion. Current enters the metal from the electrolyte and may deposit on the Cathodic metal, the metal it has corroded from the Anodic metal.

More commonly, however, the corroded metal deposits or precipitates out of the solution as a compound mixed with minerals from the water. The Cathodic metal also is protected by its positive potential.
