CRACKING TEST TANKS
Cortest offers Hydrogen Induced Cracking (HIC) test tank designs that can be used to study the corrosive and embrittling effects on metal samples in hydrogen enriched aqueous environments such as those in H2S/Sour Service Applications.
HIC tanks are suitable for samples specified in NACE TM0284 as well as 3 and 4 Point Bend Fixtures specified in both NACE TM0177 and ASTM G39. Rectangular and Cylindrical models can be designed to accommodate any desired volume.
HIC tanks are typically used for ambient temperatures and pressures but can be provided with environmental control coils to allow testing from 0°C to 40°C – with alternative designs available for higher temperature testing.
Test tanks are designed so that they may be installed in any Cortest Fume Hood or any standard laboratory fume hood. Systems in laboratory fume hoods can be paired with gas selection and flow control enclosures for complete solutions.
