    Abstract

    Because Finnish nuclear power plants take their cooling water from Baltic Sea it is possible that a chemical spill from tanker accident could somehow harm the materials of cooling water systems of a nuclear power plant. This paper presents the results of studies concerning the effects of ethanol, sodium hydroxide, phosphoric acid and phenol as well as rapeseed oil on fouling, heat transfer and corrosion of heat exchanger material (titanium) in synthetic brackish water simulating Baltic Sea water.
