Maximum Acceptable Limit

Maximum Acceptable Limit

Maximum Acceptable Limit

I am interested in finding a table or some information on the maximum acceptable limit of certain chemicals before corrosion.  Specifically, I am looking for the limit on H2S, CO2, DO, PH  etc...before an alloy could start corroding.  I work in a downhole pump manufacturing company, and I need this info almost on a day to day basis.
I appreciate the help.

RE: Maximum Acceptable Limit

Goto the NACE-International website


They have a handbook series that have thsi type of information in, that is  a matrix with Base Materal, Concentration, Temperature and and corrosion rate. A great reference, but pricey.

This is the books that you need:
