Hall, S. (2013) Corrosion Protection Provided by Mortar Lining in Large Diameter Water Pipelines After Many Years of Service. Pipelines 2013: pp. 100-112.

More than 95% of large diameter steel (AWWA C200/C205), ductile iron (AWWA C104), and concrete cylinder pipelines (AWWA C303) used in water transmission contain a portland cement mortar lining that protects the interior steel or iron surface from corrosion. This lining has been used in water pipelines for at least 175 years. The mortar provides protection due to the highly alkaline environment produced by the hydration of portland cement which passivates the interior metal surface of the pipe. During the past 30 years, the mortar linings from numerous concrete cylinder pipelines and steel pipelines were evaluated to determine their condition after up to 108 years of service. Properties (such as absorption, specific gravity, and compressive strength) and the available alkalinity, pH, and chloride ion content through the thickness of the linings were determined. The amount of leaching or carbonation found in the mortar lining was related to the various constituents in the water transported and to the mortar's absorption. Visual observation of the steel cylinder for the presence of corrosion was also made and related to the condition of the mortar lining. The test results of these case histories are presented and discussed.
