ASTM G48A PDF

ASTM G48 testing in ferric chloride solution allows a quick assessment of pitting corrosion resistance of stainless steels. Although service is rarely in media similar to this very aggressive test solution, there are similarities between ferric chloride solution and the environment within a corrosion pit that may develop during service in chloride solutions, eg seawater. Hence, this test has become accepted as a quality control or ranking test for stainless alloys and welds. There has been much debate about the most appropriate test temperatures, so if a weld fails the test criterion, it is worth checking that the test temperature was correctly specified. Test temperatures significantly above these would cause corrosion of many welds that have perfectly acceptable service properties.

Frequently Asked Questions ASTM G48 testing in ferric chloride solution allows a quick assessment of pitting corrosion resistance of stainless steels. The most effective ways of improving pitting performance and hence increasing the likelihood of passing the test include the following: Improve the weld surface finish by removing weld oxides. This may be done by pickling, grinding, brushing or blasting after welding or, for gas shielded welding, by improving the effectiveness of the gas shielding on the root or cap side, as appropriate.

Note that pickling may change the required test temperature. Metallurgical examination may reveal the presence of too much ferrite or 'sigma' phase. Both of these may act to lower corrosion resistance but the former is infrequently encountered and the latter is largely restricted to superduplex grades. If sigma phase is present, the weld heat input or interpass temperature may be too high. Ferrite formation is encouraged by low heat input fast cooling rate and inadequate addition of filler metal.

Pitting and Crevice Corrosion Testing

G48 contains six different test methods for evaluating the pitting and crevice corrosion resistance of stainless and nickel alloys. These are:. However, these parameters can be modified to suit individual test needs. Note that these are not acceptance tests as written in G48 as there are no acceptance criteria. They can be used as acceptance tests if criteria e. Methods C through F are designed as incremental tests and require multiple specimens. These tests identify the minimum critical temperature needed to initiate pitting or crevice corrosion.

In a previous post that has since been locked, I stated that I had also sent an email to Metrode, concerning the corrosive testing of duplex and super duplex filler wires, or as welded metal according to G48! Crisi's original letter to metrode with minor modifications to grammar etc!

Pitting and crevice corrosion can be challenging to detect and predict, so understanding the risk factors of corrosion and susceptibility of a material can help anticipate issues before they arise. If a material exhibits holes or gaps on its surface, pitting or crevice corrosion may be the culprit. Pitting corrosion is characterized by small holes, and crevice corrosion occurs where two materials meet. Pitting can be one of the most dangerous types of corrosion. It isn't straightforward to anticipate, may occur very rapidly, and may only produce localized corrosion, with the vast majority of the surface remaining unaffected.

Historical Version s - view previous versions of standard. More G The results may be used for ranking alloys in order of increasing resistance to pitting and crevice corrosion initiation under the specific conditions of these methods. Methods A and B are designed to cause the breakdown of Type at room temperature. No statement can be made about resistance of alloys in environments that do not contain chlorides.
