Unfortunately, CUI can be very difficult to detect, often only being discovered after it has caused significant damage. The following is a list of brief explanations of 4 commonly specified corrosion ASTM material standards and test methods.
There were no books found for the applied search filters. C Terminology Relating to Thermal Insulation. Referenced Documents purchase separately The documents listed below are referenced within the subject standard but are not provided as part of the standard. The values given in parentheses are mathematical conversions to SI units that are provided for information only and are not considered standard.
Copyright Compu-tecture, Inc. This means that it is possible for 2 different insulation materials to meet their own minimum requirements, but one may suit a particular application better than the other as to one or more attributes.
Understanding ASTM Test Methods Evaluating Thermal Insulations and Corrosion of Metals
Testimonials Contact Us Sitemap. Preproduction corrosion test and chemical analysis shall be performed to conform to the specified requirements. Helps manufacturers ensure their chemical formulations help reduce the potential for CUI being caused by the insulation itself. 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.
This also helps engineers know that every word of the standard is deliberate and agreed upon by all of the members of the committee. So the insulation needs to be tight from moisture intrusion. Also, remember that external sources of chlorides usually cause more damage than the ppm chlorides found in insulation materials.

These test methods then set the minimum standards that insulation products must pass in order to be considered safe for specific applications. One thing many fail astj realize is that ASTM is a consensus group, meaning that edits, additions, or deletions to a document must receive approval from every member that votes on the issue. Historical Version s – view previous versions of standard.
In addition to meeting the cc795 specified in their individual material specifications, issued under the jurisdiction of ASTM Committee C16, these insulations must pass the preproduction test requirements of Test Method Casym stress corrosion effects on austenitic stainless steel, and the confirming quality control, chemical requirements, when tested in accordance with the Test Methods C Register for a trial account.
Referenced Documents purchase separately The documents listed below are referenced within the subject standard but are not provided as part of the standard. One must take the time to read the actual material standard to see what the passing criteria are because, as noted above, they xstm vary from one material standard to another. In addition to meeting the requirements specified in their individual material specifications, issued under the jurisdiction of ASTM Committee C16, these insulations must pass the preproduction test requirements of Test Method Cfor stress corrosion effects on austenitic stainless steel, and the ashm quality control, chemical requirements, when tested in accordance with the Test Methods C There are c75 different test methods that help designers evaluate corrosion rates.
This specification covers non-metallic thermal insulation for use in contact with austenitic stainless steel piping and equipment. Search book title Enter keywords for book title search. 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.
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.

Test methods are exactly that—they lay out a plan to test, evaluate, and report specific physical properties. Fortunately, to facilitate c759 creation of safe industrial environments, an organization called ASTM International developed test methods and material standards to ensure insulation products meet performance and material standards.

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 satm. Hope you anyone could enlighten me. Whether or not a given insulation material standard contains a particular test method is a function of how old the latest version is, how active the ASTM committee members are, or the difficulty in gaining consensus among the members to add or modify existing standards.
Other methods involve removing a small percentage of the insulation in CUI-prone areas, inspecting the base metal, and then re-covering the exposed pipe with new insulation and cladding. However, such methods involve costly equipment and can evaluate only a small area wstm a time.
Corrosion under insulation CUI is one of the most significant issues atm industrial facility owners, engineers, and maintenance personnel who work with above-ambient process piping and equipment. Many facilities departments tasked with creating and implementing an effective CUI-inspection program report very limited budgets and available personnel to carry out this critically important asym, which must continue in perpetuity.
This specification covers non-metallic thermal insulation for use in contact with austenitic stainless steel piping and equipment. This test method has been adopted into several, but not all, insulation material standards.
The most predictable and cost-effective method to manage CUI is a systematic inspection program.
