Abstract: Using a model setup reproducing various operation conditions of heat transfer equipment, the temperature conditions at the metal/solution interface that may inhibit the local violation of passive iron in soft water in the presence of Cl, Br, I, SO42-, and NO3- anions have been determined. It has been demonstrated that the presence of a positive heat flow directed from the solid to the liquid phase protects the metal from local damage in all the systems studied, in contrast to the conditions of thermal equilibrium where a similar effect can be observed only at a certain temperature of the metal surface.
