Steel corrosion processes that occur due to the effects of the biochemically treated water in coke quenching plenums have been studied. Model investigations into the processes of the corrosion failure of carbon St. 3 steel and alloyed 18Х1MF  steel were carried out to study the behavior of the  metal exposed to the action of the primary but treated water used for the coke quenching after the metal is heated to 373 K and 773 K. Different types of the corrosion that results from the contact of the carbon steel and alloy steel with the sodium hydroxide biochemically treated water of the coke-chemical production have been described. It was shown that the corrosion failure of the steels results from the formation of the films of hydrated iron oxides that appear in all the test media and these films show different behavior of adhesion to specimen surfaces. It was proved that the water treatment results in a certain decrease of the values of the mass and in-depth corrosion factors for St.3 and 12X1MF steels, however it fails to produce an essential effect when the steel is in constant touch with hot water.
