Corrosion testing

Materials engineering tests the corrosion properties of materials in standardised tests in the scope of incoming materials checks and customer requests:

  • Salt spray test
  • Condensate test
  • Intercrystalline corrosion test
  • Stress corrosion test

A corrosion measuring cell (AVESTA cell) is available for comparative pitting corrosion potential measurements.

Special component tests developed by Witzenmann in collaboration with academic institutions and external partners allow complex corrosion processes, such as, e.g., the interplay of wet and high temperature corrosion in components exposed to changing temperatures, to be simulated under realistic conditions. This enables the application of the optimal material, considering both material-specific and cost-related aspects, even in extreme application scenarios.
