ASTM A Testing – Detecting Intermetallic Phases in Duplex Steels
A actually contains three different test methods for determining acceptability. When Test Method A is specified as an acceptance test, specimens having other aastm acceptable etch structures may, at the option of the producer, be tested by Test Method B or Test Method C.
Note 4—Although this test method uses some equipment and procedures similar to those of Test Methods G 48this test method should not be confused with Test Methods G North America Asia Europe Tools.
Alloy material tested in a 6 wt. The speed of these precipitation reactions is a function of composition and thermal or thermomechanical history of each individual piece. Link to Active This link will always route to the current Active version of the standard. Because of the wide experience in the production testing of duplex alloys, testing in accordance with A is recommended.
This abstract is a brief summary of the referenced standard. These tests offer a means to evaluate and compare the expected performance of various alloys. There are no acceptance criteria for any alloys. This test method does not determine the critical pitting temperature or test for the suitability for use in a particular environment.
G48 contains six different test methods for evaluating the pitting and crevice corrosion resistance of stainless and nickel alloys. The values given in parentheses are for information only.
While Test Method A electrolytic NaOH etch can be used as a screening test, it atm sometimes not permitted for this purpose by User specifications.

Proceedings of an international conference Diverless and Deepwater Techology: The speed of these precipitation reactions is a function of composition and thermal or thermomechanical history of each individual piece. This test method is designed solely for detection of the precipitation of detrimental intermetallic phases in duplex stainless steels.
Except for rapidly cooled material, it may be necessary to sample from a location determined to be the most slowly cooled for the material piece to be characterized. ASTM A was implemented to assess the presence of intermetallic phases in base material, but has also been used for weld qualification.
The Charpy procedure as here applied is different from that as commonly applied for the determination of toughness xstm should not be used when characterization of material toughness is the purpose of the testing. These test methods will not necessarily detect losses of toughness or corrosion resistance attributable to other causes.
As components in thicker sections were developed for expanding markets, the requirements necessary to obtain a good weld were similarly awtm. Active view current version of standard. In the case of common heat treatment, this region will be that which cooled most slowly.
This test method may be used with other evaluation tests to provide a zstm method for identifying those specimens that are free of detrimental intermetallic phases as measured in these other tests.

However, these parameters can be modified to suit individual test needs. Return to Blog List. Log in to your subscription Username. However, since the tests are slightly different, material tested in accordance with one method cannot be certified to the other without re-testing.
It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of a9223 limitations prior to use.

Recently, use of these alloys has met with challenges, many of them w923 to do with welding operations. Referenced Documents purchase separately The documents listed below are referenced within the subject standard but are not provided as part of the standard. Test method A-sodium hydroxide etch test, test method B-Charpy impact test, and test method C-ferric chloride corrosion test shall be made for classification of structures of duplex stainless steels.
B The acceptable minimum impact energy shall be agreed upon by seller and purchaser. ASTM A includes three separate test asgm that can be used to assess the extent of intermetallic precipitation, namely:.
