5 Jul 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. 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 . 13 Apr ASTM G – Designation: G 28 – 02 Standard Test Methods of Detecting Susceptibility to Inter.

However, the ASTM standards acknowledge that the environments that the material will experience in service are likely to differ from those of the test methods, in which case the corrosion performance could be different. Peer reviewed only Published between: Suggested test methods for different corrosion resistant alloys. It is common practice to perform intergranular corrosion testing in accordance with ASTM 1 G28 on solid solution nickel alloys, e.

Materials shown to be susceptible may or may not be intergranularly corroded in other environments. The effect of post weld surface treatments on the corrosion resistance of super duplex stainless steel welds in sea water Corrosion rate, expressed in millimeters per year, can be calculated considering the original mass and surface area of the test pieces, their mass loss, the duration of the immersion and the density of the acid solution.

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.

It has been used for the duplex stainless steel UNS Swhich has been used for nitric acid cooler tubes.

Where no specific test is specified, Table 5 suggests the most appropriate alongside a second choice, if the b28 is declined. For alloys not listed in this standard, it will be necessary to carry out some tests on material in various conditions to determine the threshold. JavaScript is required for this content.

Just remember that these tests were devised for specific groups of alloys and should not be applied to all CRAs! Invia la tua richiesta. Method A requires to immerse the specimens in a ferric sulfate-sulfuric acid solution, while the solution described by Method B consists of mixed acid-oxidating salt including sulfuric acid, hydrogen chloride, ferric chloride and copper chloride.

Methods B and E are suggested for all grades of series austenitic alloys, while method F is suggested for cast type alloys. Description of the phenomenon. 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. Where a bend test is required, the sample must be bent over a mandrel of a diameter related to the specimen diameter, without any cracking, as determined by inspection under a low power microscope and a microsection in any suspicious areas.

Intergranular Attack Testing – ASTM G28 – Colorado-Metallurgical-Services

Make an Enquiry Notice: For many alloys, gg28 onset is at 0. This means that carbide formation during welding is highly unlikely, and modern CRAs should easily pass one of these tests. It does not say what to do about sstm or super austenitic alloys.

Table 1 below shows the various methods for four common standards: Atm of an international conference Diverless and Deepwater Techology: Sensitization or undesirable intergranular precipitation may occur due to deleterious g228 cycles, asm of welding or heat treatment, for example.

The ASTM G28 test methods A and B are utilized in many industries as quality control tests in order to assess the resistance to intergranular corrosion of various stainless steels and nickel-based alloys, such as Alloy and Alloy ISO is the most rigorous in terms of defining test methods, and says which alloys should use which test methods as follows: ASTM G28 method B is a more aggressive test than method A and is intended for more corrosion resistant alloys, as listed in the document.

Selection of a Test Method The test methods in Table 1 axtm designed with specific alloys in mind, but the proliferation of new CRAs has meant that the selection of a suitable test method is difficult. 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. The Huey test method C is only for molybdenum-free grades, such g8 L, as alloys with molybdenum show high rates of attack in this test.


This must be established independently by specific tests or by service experience. Proceedings of an International Conference Submersible Technology: ASTM G28 does not require samples to be heat treated. Link to Active This link will always route to the current Active version of the standard. Figure 1 shows a sensitized microstructure, where the darker etched grain boundaries have a decoration of precipitates. The susceptibility to intergranular corrosion in wrought, nickel-rich and chromium-bearing alloys can be detected by measuring the mass loss of the test pieces.

Intergranular Corrosion Tests for CRAs

These regions will exhibit a lower resistance to the initiation of corrosion in the ASTM tests, and this is where the intergranular corrosion begins. These tests were introduced when the carbon content in CRAs typically hit 0. ISO is specifically for duplex and all austenitic stainless steels, and recommends ageing at two different temperatures:. Both of these tests should be followed by water quenching.

Description of the test. 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. Nickel-rich, chromium-bearing alloys to intergranular corrosion may be subjected to intergranular corrosion, due to severe service conditions.

Some standards require the test sample to be aged prior to testing, to simulate the precipitation that might occur during welding.

Resistance to Intergranular Corrosion of Nickel Rich Chromium Bearing Alloys

None of these are identical and cross substitution of results is not possible. Publishers Content Coverage Privacy. The asrm convenient size is often a cylinder 10mm diameter by mm long, but other dimensions are possible to suit particular product forms.

Corrosion, caused by grain boundary precipitation phenomena, could be related to the chemical composition or the thermomechanical processing of the material.
