ABSTRACT It is common practice to perform intergranular corrosion testing in accordance with ASTM (1) G28 on solid solution nickel alloys, e.g. UNS N . Alloy 22 is a Ni-Cr-Mo alloy (Nickel-Chromium-Molybdenum) and is one of the most versatile corrosion resistant alloys used in industry today. Intergranular Attack Susceptibility For Nickel Alloys.

Intergranular Corrosion Tests for CRAs

Some suggested criteria for the listed alloys are shown in Table 2, below. Incoloy will fail and not ashm for dilute sulfuric acid. Get in Touch Contact us by Phone or Email to find out how we can help your industry.

For ferric sulphate – depending on the concentration and temp, it depends on suitabiity. Moreover, my samples of incoloyaccording aztm test, should last for hours without intergranular corrosion. The most convenient size is often a cylinder 10mm diameter by mm long, but other dimensions are possible to suit particular product forms.

Where no specific test is specified, Table 5 suggests the most appropriate alongside a second choice, if the first is declined. In my case the samples shows damage only at six hours. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and asfm practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.

These environments astmm typically oxidizing and acidic e. It is common practice to perform intergranular corrosion testing in zstm with ASTM 1 G28 on solid solution nickel alloys, e. The safe operation of g228 refineries in the United States is under constant r SEP does not require ageing, although it might be required in a specification calling up this standard. Proceedings of an international conference Subsea Controls and Data Acquisition ‘ The results of such tests are applied widely as acceptance tests for parent and welded materials, and as such are essentially used to confirm the suitability of these materials for service.


Conducting the Tests When a test has been selected, follow the detailed directions in that standard for making up the test solution, the preparation of test samples and the finish to be used.

Samples may be rectangular or cylindrical to suit the test vessel, but where a bend test is required, it is suggested that the sample be a minimum of mm long. Just remember that these tests were devised for specific groups of alloys and should not be applied to all CRAs!

Some standards require the test sample to be aged prior to testing, to simulate the precipitation that might occur during welding. Table 1 below shows the various methods for four common standards: This must be established independently by specific tests or by service experience.

However, there are necessarily limitations in the potential applicability of standard tests because the mechanism of corrosion in the service environment may be different than that targeted in the standard test, due to the difference between the actual service environment and the test solution.

Methods B and E are suggested for all grades of series austenitic alloys, while method F is suggested for cast type alloys. Selection of a Atsm Method The test methods in Table 1 were designed with specific alloys in mind, but the proliferation of new CRAs has meant that the selection of a suitable test method is difficult.


All NEW posts will show up credited to their authors. In the case of nickel-rich, chromium-bearing alloys, the test method may be applied to wrought and weldments of products. Publishers Astk Coverage Privacy. Suggested test methods for different corrosion resistant alloys.

There are other requirements in these standards over details that are not discussed in this document, and these should be followed, such as conducting bend tests. The uniform corrosion rate obtained by this test method, which is a function of minor variations in alloy composition, may easily mask the intergranular corrosion components of the overall corrosion rate on alloys H28, N, N, and N The Tests Table 1 below shows the various methods for four common standards: This document also points out which alloys the tests are intended for, and recommends the most appropriate test when none is specified.

So please participate and share knowledge just as you have in the past.

Someone would have experience in this matter. Both of these tests should be followed by water quenching. The effect of post weld surface treatments on the corrosion resistance of super duplex stainless steel welds in sea water
