It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.

G2MT Laboratories

There are 6 Methods: G48 A ashm is designed to determine the relative pitting resistance of stainless steels and nickel-base, chromium bearing alloys.

By joining you are opting in to receive e-mail. This is a simple immersion test where the test sample is placed in a temperature-controlled solution of FeCl 3. Other units are given in parentheses for information only. Where you cut a sample asgm grind the surfaces, no pickle or passivation allowed, and test in ferric chloride? Unfortunately, if the client wants a 72 hour test, that is their prerogative.


This standard contains six methods, A through F. This should indicate if you have any intermetallic phases present.

Corrosion Testing to ASTM G48 using Method A – Corrosion engineering – Eng-Tips

Do not include the depth of pits that intersect the edges of the specimen in the calculated average. Client is not accepting the results and require to perform the testing to G48 Method A for 72 hours.

Should the clients’ insistence is for 72 hrs duration then: Rock Mechanics Symposium and 5th U. Before reuse, each washer should be inspected for evidence of distortion and other damage.

See Ashm G It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use. 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.

We follow a standard practice we have developed to minimize these variations and provide consistent data. If alloy consistently fails at the above specified testing regime, assuming that metallurgical factors are not contributors then the ways to get around it on GA test would be: Secondly, have you done an A test? Don’t play mix and match with test conditions and procedures.


Each assembly comprises a threaded bolt and nut plus two washers. Cradles, such as those shown in Fig. Sheriff’s Encyclopedic Dictionary of Applied Geophysics, fourth edition. Grinding or pickling on stainless steel 4g8 may destroy the passive layer. Not sure what you need?

They use similar test solutions but they are done for very different satm. The sides only may be ground to a grit finish and the edges may be rounded. Hence, this analysis produces results in terms of a continuously variable temperature. If so affected, they should be discarded.

Methods A and B are designed to cause the breakdown of Type at room temperature. Is the pipe pickled? When using stainless and duplex steels, ASTM G48 is widely used to ensure the quality of the material and resistance to pitting and crevice corrosion.

The results of these tests are given in Table 1. Historical Version s – view previous versions of standard.
