Is this common when using this particular flux cored wire electrode? Crisi Sao Paulo – Brazil. Method B — Ferric chloride crevice test.

Referenced Documents purchase separately The documents listed below are referenced within the subject standard but are not provided as g48 of the standard. Powered by mwForum 2. And it just goes on, and on, and on, and on At long last we come to know or at least I come to know what Metrode have to say g4a their specification attached to one of nanjing’s posting on another thread on this same subject.

Are you sure that the temp is correct for the alloy? By Joey Date There are several factors that can influence the selection of methods; we can help you with this part of the process as well.

Could any one explain the potential reasons for the failure and moreover what countermeasures shall be considered to avoid repeated failure?


Nevada – Section By CWI Date Results will be presented on variability of crevice corrosion testing from rubber band type, crevice former geometry, and surface roughness. Methods D and F use a multiple crevice assembly which has a number of grooves and plateaus and is attached to the test sample with an insulated bolt.

This test method does not determine the critical pitting temperature or test for the suitability for use in a particular environment. Arizona – Section Many Upstream Oil gas specifications allow 24 hrs of testing duration for such test see extrats as below: Joey, I’ve looked on the dictionary and didn’t find the word “underdog”.

The testing medium was acidified FeCl solution. Methods E and F are for stainless steels and have a test time of 24 hours.

Please advise, is it acceptable if we may submit TQ to client to lower the testing time to 24 hours instead of 72 hours for normal duplex wrought specimen because G48 is flexible on timings and suggests 72 hours although variations may also be used. The oil and gas industry has spent a great deal of time and effort since the 80s in arriving at a standardised G48 test for duplex.

Proceedings of an international conference Oceanology: Don’t play mix and match with test conditions and procedures. Click Here to join Eng-Tips and talk with other members! We follow a standard practice we have developed to minimize these variations and provide consistent data. Should the clients’ insistence is for 72 hrs duration then: Merry Christmas Henry, Stephan.


Method D — Critical crevice temperature test for nickel-base and chromium-bearing alloys. A and B are for qualification of alloys to pitting and crevice corrosion at specific temperatures, C and D are for determining the critical pitting and crevice corrosion temperatures of chromium and nickel alloys, and E and F are for stainless alloys.

ASTM G48 Method A-Corrosive Testing #4

I still think you do not see it. Exposure time shall be 24 hours. A h air passivation after grinding or pickling is sufficient to minimize these differences 8. Ferric chloride is a mild solution in the G48 test? For your information, on the use of CO2 when welding duplex, I attach some further information from Metrode.

If alloy consistently fails at the above specified testing regime, assuming that metallurgical factors are not contributors then gg48a ways to get around it on GA test would be: Ed, The issue is not confused. Resources Digital Transformation may be defined in a number of different ways by analysts or enterprise software vendors.
