What is a Circular Corrosion Coupon?
Circular corrosion coupons are an important tool used to measure the corrosion rate of pipelines in many industries. In industries such as oil and gas, pipe rust or damage due to corrosion is a common problem. This is where the circular corrosion coupon comes in.
These circular coupons are essentially samples that are inserted into the tube over a period of time. After this, the coupons are removed and analyzed. The main indicator derived from these circular corrosion coupons is weight loss, which is a direct result of material corrosion.
By using circular corrosion coupons, the operator can clearly understand the degree of corrosion inside the pipe. Data on carbon coupon weight loss provides critical information on corrosion rates. Armed with this knowledge, operators can take appropriate measures to stop the corrosion process.
The use of circular corrosion coupons plays an important role in effectively managing and reducing the effects of corrosion. As a result, the service life of the pipeline can be extended, ensuring that its operation remains efficient and reliable.

Calculate the Corrosion Rate
By reducing the sample weight, one can calculate the corrosion rate using a straightforward ASTM formula:
V: Corrosion rate (μm/year)
M∆: Sample weight change (mg)
ρ: Alloy density (g/cm3)
S: Sample area exposed to the environment (cm2)
t: Duration of exposure (h)
K: Fixed coefficient (106*8.76، With units used for other terms)
Primary Advantages of Circular Corrosion Coupon
- Ease of Use: The round corrosion coupon can be easily put in and removed from the pipe for testing, making it a convenient choice for corrosion detection.
- Versatility: These coupons can be made from a variety of materials commonly used in industry and can be accurately tested in a variety of environments.
- Direct Measurement: By directly measuring the weight loss of the joint, the corrosion rate can be accurately determined. This can provide valuable insights into the service life and maintenance requirements of the equipment.
- Cost-Effective: Circular corrosion coupons are relatively inexpensive to produce and use, making them a cost-effective solution for ongoing corrosion monitoring.
- Preventive Action: The data obtained from these coupons can help predict future corrosion patterns, allowing for timely preventive measures. This can extend the lifespan of the pipelines and avoid costly repairs or replacements.
- Adaptable: They can be used alongside other corrosion monitoring tools, such as electrical resistance probes and online analyzers, to provide comprehensive information about the corrosion process.
- Multiple Corrosion Types: Different types of corrosion, such as pitting and uniform corrosion, can be studied using circular corrosion coupons, making them a flexible tool for corrosion analysis.
- Reliable: They provide a reliable and time-tested method for monitoring corrosion. The use of corrosion coupons is a widely accepted practice in many industries, including oil and gas, water treatment, and manufacturing.
