• LPG Copper Strip Corrosion Test Apparatus

LPG Copper Strip Corrosion Test Apparatus



Tests the corrosiveness of LPG to copper by immersion of a polished test strip in the sample inside a test cylinder at elevated temperature. After one hour the test strip is removed and compared against the ASTM Copper Strip Corrosion Standards

  • Conforms to ASTM D1838 and related specifications
  • Four-sample testing capability

Consists of LPG Corrosion Test Cylinders, Water Bath, Copper Strips, Polishing Materials and the ASTM Copper Strip Corrosion Test Standards. LPG Corrosion Test Cylinders–Stainless steel cylinder with 1⁄4" needle valves for purging and admitting LPG samples. Dip tube with hook suspends copper strip in sample. Knurled, threaded cap with O-ring gasket hand tightens to a positive seal. Withstands hydrostatic test pressure of 1000 psig (6895kPa). LPG Corrosion Test Water Bath–Thermostatically controlled water bath submerges four LPG Corrosion Test Cylinders in an upright position. Controls temperature at 100 ±1°F (37.8 ±0.5°C) per ASTM specifications. Soxhlet reflux condenser and constant water level device maintain proper working depth. Polished stainless steel inner wall and powder coated steel outer wall construction. Fully insulated.
