In this program, specially-trained workers carefully cut cores out of the insulation system, perform a visual inspection of the base metal, and then install properly sealed inspection plugs. There were no books found for the applied search filters.

Page 1 of 1. Most ASTM material standards for industrial insulation contain one or more of these test methods regarding corrosion.

Understanding ASTM Test Methods Evaluating Thermal Insulations and Corrosion of Metals

The safe operation of oil refineries in the United States is under constant r ASTM International plays an important role in providing the technical data and physical properties for a broad range of materials, including insulation.

Industry members at all levels should educate themselves on the science behind corrosion and be able to logically explain how insulation plays a role. Register for a trial account. As these standards frequently take extensive amounts of time to gain consensus within each committee, the absence of a particular test method should not call into question the corrosion performance of any insulation standards that do not yet reference the test. C Terminology Relating to Thermal Insulation. When migrating the old forums over to our new forums we were unable to retain the identity of the authors, so the old posts will show up as “anonymous”.

The values given in parentheses are mathematical conversions to SI units that are provided for information only and are not considered standard. No items in cart. Enter your account email address to request a password reset: They are WK and WK The material shall conform to the established requirements of the basic material specification. Most manufacturers claim less than 10ppm others ppm. This test method has been adopted into several, but not all, insulation material standards.


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. Historical Version s – view previous versions of standard.

This abstract is a brief summary of the referenced standard. Hope you anyone could enlighten me. Nails, Spikes, and Staples.

It is informational only and not an official part of the standard; the full text of the standard itself must be referred to for its use and application. The insulation industry must lead the way in helping designers and facility owners directly zstm the costly battle against CUI.

Asym NEW posts will show up credited to their authors. This protects the broader community and prevents individuals or groups from passing self-serving standards that do not benefit the industry as a whole. While the older corrosion test strictly relies on visual results, C provides objective, quantifiable data of the actual metal loss due to corrosion caused by the chemical formulation of the various insulations. Corrosion under insulation CUI is one of the most significant issues facing industrial facility owners, engineers, and maintenance personnel who work with above-ambient process piping and equipment.

Fortunately, to facilitate the creation of safe industrial environments, an organization called ASTM International developed test methods and material standards to astmm insulation products meet performance and material standards.

Leachable Chloride Content of Thermal Insulation

The rates are compared to various control solutions including DI water and 1-ppm and 5-ppm chloride solutions. ASTM does not give any warranty express or implied or make any representation that the contents of this abstract are accurate, complete or up to date. The coupons are weighed before the test, and are weighed again after the test once the coupon has been cleaned to remove corrosion products formed during the test.


Enter your personal account email address to request a password reset: This would be a great way to increase credibility of the industry, help lower energy costs, and reduce CUI potential within affected systems.

These test methods then set the minimum standards that insulation products must pass in order to be considered safe for asmt applications. As long as a given product meets f795 insulation-specific minimum requirements, it can be considered an eligible material to bid on the project. ASTM does not give any warranty express or implied or make any representation that the contents of this abstract are accurate, complete or up to date. Testimonials Contact Us Sitemap.

Referenced Documents purchase separately The documents listed below are referenced within the subject standard but are not provided as part of the standard.


Print 1 2 3 4 5 page sstarting from page current page. However, such methods involve costly equipment and can evaluate only a small area ashm a time.

Helps manufacturers ensure their chemical formulations help reduce the potential for CUI being caused by the insulation itself. Are you sure you want to empty the cart? Your stated minimum operating temperatures of C are also above where we would anticipate chloride SCC issues unless the component cycles frequently. Follow Us On Twitter http: The physical and chemical requirements shall conform to the requirements of the basic material specification.

Caution is advised here as some specifications are not generic, but instead insulation specific. This also helps engineers know that every word of the standard is deliberate and agreed upon by all of the members of the committee.
