Stainless Steel Contamination Testing by ASTM A380 – The Ferroxyl Test

It’s a well-known fact that a small amount of iron or steel contamination is enough to destroy the corrosion resistance of most stainless steels. What is harder is finding that contamination and making sure your vessels are clean. We offer ASTM A380 testing in the and the field to help you find contamination in new and refurbished vessels before they go into service.

ASTM A380 includes information on cleaning, descaling, and passivating stainless steels, as well as the tests the can be applied to ensure your surface is contaminant-free. These include the ferroxyl test and the copper sulfate test, which can be quickly applied to find any existing iron/steel contamination on the stainless surface. Let us help you ensure the quality of your materials today!
