Corrosion of condenser is very seriously in chlorine-alkali industry,which could lead to fatal disaster.The most commonly used material in low pressure condenser includes steel of 16MnR,10#,and welding rod of J507.Electrochemical analysis of the three materials in 29.9%(by mass) calcium chloride(CaCl2) solution was carried out.The corrosion current density icorr and impedance parameters of the three materials in 29.9% CaCl2 solution were estimated separately.The result showed that in the tripartite phase regions where the 10# seamless tube and 16MnR armor plate were jointed by welding,the weld was firstly eroded and suggested that the chlorine condenser should be examined and repaired every year.
