Abstract

An eco-friendly green corrosion inhibitor Commiphora Mukul was tested for its efficacy to control material loss in 6061 aluminum alloy under collective influence of mechanical erosion and electrochemical corrosion in a submerged jet impingement rig. Electrochemical techniques were utilized in the current investigation which consisted of potentiodynamic polarization and electrochemical impedance spectroscopy. The effect of temperature and flowrate of artificial seawater slurry on the inhibitory effect of Commiphora Mukul is investigated. Under the experimental conditions of 303 K temperature and 4 L min− 1 flowrate, the inhibitor showed an efficiency of 54% as determined by the potentiodynamic polarization studies. With the increase in temperature and flowrate of artificial seawater slurry, the protection efficiency of the inhibitor decreased. Protection efficiency of 35% was observed. Possible reasons for this phenomenon were discussed. Electrochemical impedance studies reported that the process is both charge transfer and diffusion controlled. At 323 K, the diffusion component was prominent for all the studied flowrates of 4 L min− 1, 8 L min− 1, and 12 L min− 1. It seems that the moving medium makes it challenging for the inhibitor molecules to adsorb on the metal surface in the presence of abrasive particles
