Standard Test Method for Continuity of Coatings in Glassed Steel Equipment by Electrical Testing
|Publication Date:||1 January 1998|
|ICS Code (Enamels):||25.220.50|
1.1 This test method covers the detection of discontinuities in the glass coating of glassed steel equipment where such discontinuities would result in early failure due to the attack of the chemical contents of the vessel on the metal substrate. It is applicable to (1) provide a manufacturing and inspection test of glassed-steel equipment designed for relatively mild, low-temperature corrosive service, and (2) the field testing of similar equipment used in more severely corrosive environment.
Note 1-A manufacturing test method for the latter type of equipment is described in Method C537.
