- Corrosion rate results from a 720-hour exposure period to geothermal brine acidified to pH4 are discussed. The corrosion tests were performed in a four-stage flash system so that results obtained at different temperatures could be compared. Carbon steel and alternate construction materials were used as test specimens. Results indicate that carbon steel corrodes excessively (more than 50 mils/year) at temperatures above 150/sup 0/C. Alternate construction materials (alloy steels) may be utilized under these conditions.
