Laboratory Corrosion Testing of Metals in Static Chemical Cleaning Solutions at Temperatures Above 100 Degrees C (212 Degrees F)
Not Active, See comments below
Description / Abstract:
This standard describes a simple test method for
measuring the relative corrosiveness of solutions used for
chemical cleaning in a static system at temperatures
greater than 100°C (212°F). The test described is
conducted with corrosion test specimens in the clean
condition (ie., no deposits). The test consists of
exposing metallic test specimens to cleaning solutions
under controlled conditions in a test vessel. The test
specimens are weighed before and after the test and the
corrosion rate is calculated from the mass loss.
Localized corrosion such as pitting is also evaluated.
Procedures for test specimen handling and reporting of
test results for a better comparison of data among
laboratories are also included.
