Damage from Microbiologically Influenced Corrosion in the United States has been estimated to cost in excess of $250 billion annually. The industries most affected include oil production, water distribution, and power generation. For this reason, Microbiologically Influenced Corrosion, commonly referred to as MIC, has been the subject of many papers. Since the majority of papers are written from the viewpoint of the microbiologist, it is the intent of this paper to explain MIC in the context of classical corrosion theory, with the ultimate goal being to provide the power plant engineer with guidance on heat exchanger tube materials and how to prevent MIC in heat exchanger tubing.
