RE: Galvanic corrosion

Galvanic corrosion doesn’t usually relate to stainless steel on mild steel.  And for occasional hook contact this would be less than minimal.  Aluminium and steel causes some grief.


Email me privately your fax number, and I’ll fax over what I have.  If I can find it.

Does anyone have any case histories or can they cite any studies of the effects of galvanic corrosion of a small steel area (hook) occasionally contacting a large 304 stainless steel area (trunnion) over much time (10-40 years) in a variety of atmospheres from dry to completely wet?  I'm trying to answer a customer's concern, but cannot find anything beyond the basic text book type stuff in my library.  Thanks.
