We can conduct a wide range of corrosion tests, but most commonly are asked to do the ASTM G 48 test. This is an accelerated pitting test. The client specifies the temperature of the bath, and we place the prepared sample in a FeCl2 solution for a period of time. The temperature is carefully controlled. After the test the sample is measured for mass loss. The sample is then inspected for pitting corrosion.
This test is typically required for weld procedure qualification testing on SAF 2205, a duplex stainless steel. It is also often required for the austentic grades such as AISI 304 and AISI 31 stainless.
We make use of this equipment for a wide range of accelerated corrosion tests in different solutions other than FeCl2.
