ASTM G32 – 10 Standard Test Method for Cavitation Erosion Using Vibratory Apparatus

The inch-pound units given in parentheses are for information only. It also specifies standard reference materials that must be used to verify the operation of the facility and to define the normalized erosion resistance of other test materials. Referenced Documents purchase separately The documents listed below are referenced within the subject standard but are not provided as part of the standard.

However, adaptations of the basic method and apparatus have been used for such purposes see 9. The method therefore offers a small-scale, relatively simple and controllable test that can be used to compare the cavitation erosion resistance v32 different materials, to study aztm detail the nature and progress of damage in a given material, or — by varying some of the test conditions — to study the effect of test variables on the damage produced.

Guide G may be followed in order to determine the synergism between the mechanical and electrochemical effects. It gives guidance on setting up a suitable apparatus and covers test and reporting procedures and precautions to be taken.

For specific safety warning information, see 6. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use. Active view current version of standard. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the zstm of regulatory limitations prior to use.

It gives guidance on setting up a suitable apparatus and covers test and reporting procedures and precautions to be taken. It permits deviations from some of these conditions if properly documented, that may be appropriate for some purposes. While several investigators have used this approach see X4. An alternative method for similar purposes is Test Method Gwhich employs a cavitating liquid jet to produce erosion on a stationary specimen.

The vibration induces the formation and collapse of cavities in the liquid, and the collapsing cavities produce the damage to and erosion material loss of the specimen. This must be considered in planning, conducting and reporting a test program. The stationary specimen approach can also be used for brittle materials which can not be formed into a threaded specimen nor into a disc that can be cemented to a threaded specimen, as required for this test method see 7.

The latter may be more suitable for materials not readily formed into a precisely shaped specimen. The inch-pound units given in parentheses are for information only. The method therefore offers a small-scale, relatively simple and controllable test that can be used to compare the cavitation erosion resistance of different materials, to study in detail the nature and progress of damage in a given material, or—by varying some of the test conditions—to study the effect of test variables on the damage produced.

Test Method G73 describes another testing approach specifically intended for that type of environment. Small differences between two aetm are probably not significant, and their relative ranking could well be reversed in another test. The results of either, or anycavitation erosion test should be used with caution; see 5.

This is because the compliance of the coating on the specimen may reduce the severity of the liquid cavitation induced by its vibratory motion. Historical Version s – view previous versions of standard. However, adherence to this test method 3g2 all other respects will permit a better understanding and correlation between the results of different investigators. In that method, the specimen is fixed within the liquid container, and the vibrating tip of the horn is b32 in close proximity to it.

It also specifies standard reference materials that must be used to verify the operation of the facility and to define the normalized erosion resistance of other test materials. The result would not be representative of a field application, where the hydrodynamic generation of cavitation is asrm of the coating. It permits deviations from some of these conditions if properly documented, that may be appropriate for some purposes.

For this reason, the consistency of results between different test methods or under different field conditions is not very good. Referenced Documents purchase separately The documents listed below are referenced within the subject standard but are not provided as part of the standard.
