Corrosion coupons are a simple, cost-effective research tool for measuring the corrosive properties of water. Planning for a successful corrosion coupon study requires careful consideration of what parameters the corrosion study will include. Some of the parameters include apparatus design, plumbing conditions, flow, coupon alloys, study duration, and analyses at the conclusion of the study. While corrosion coupon studies are well established in the water industry, the nuances of experimental design and execution are not well established. In this talk, we will discuss the corrosion coupon studies conducted by Central Utah Water Conservancy District and Jordan Valley Water Conservancy Districts and some of the lessons that we have learned during the design, experimental and analytical phases of these studies.
