ASTM D665/NACE compliant automated corrosion bath

Oct 30 2023

A combination of innovation and customer demand incited AD Systems to develop the CB10 - an automated bath for iron corrosivity testing of fuels and lubricants in accordance with ASTM D665, NACE TM0172, ISO 7120, and other recognised international methods.

The bath was engineered to minimise operator time and run corrosion tests fully unattended. After installing a beaker with 300ml of the sample in one of the test positions and selecting the test method (standard or customised) on the touch screen, the entire procedure is fully automated: sample heating, stirring, insertion of test specimen (spindle), injection of distilled or synthetic sea water, temperature, and test time controls.

At the end of the test, the CB10 automatically lifts the test specimen and calls the operator with an audible signal to proceed with the rating.

The corrosion rating of the test specimen can be performed either visually, or by using the CT10 automated corrosion rater, the ideal companion of the CB10 bath. Using a digital camera with a specific image analysing algorithm, the CT10 enables quick, accurate and objective rating according to the selected method: The combination of CB10 bath and CT10 rater provides automated and safe testing with precise and fully documented results.
