Description

This Standard describes procedures for detecting the susceptibility of austenitic stainless steel to intergranular corrosion in the presence of nitric acid and acidified copper sulphate in contact with copper. It includes details on the selection and preparation of test pieces, the compositions of the test solutions, and the step-by-step procedure for carrying out the test and assessing test results.

Scope

This standard describes two procedures for detecting the susceptibility of austenitic stainless steel products to intergranular corrosion, namely- (a) the Huey test involving treatment in boiling nitric acid, and (b) the Monypenny-Strauss test involving contact with copper in the presence of boiling copper sulphate/sulphuric acid solution.
