to the pH value of the collected spray solution.
5.2.2 Neutral salt spray test (NSS test)
The pH value of the test solution (5.1) shall be adjusted, so that the pH value of the spray solution, which is collected in the salt spray chamber (6.2), is between 6.5 and 7.2, at 25 ??C ?? 2 ??C. Use a potentiometric pH meter to measure the pH value. The pH value shall be measured, by an electrode suitable for weakly buffered sodium chloride solution (dissolved in deionized water). The pH value of the solution is adjusted, by a solution which is prepared by analytical pure hydrochloric acid, sodium hydroxide or sodium bicarbonate.
Note: The loss of carbon dioxide in the solution, during spraying, may cause pH changes. Take corresponding measures, such as heating the solution to more than 35 ??C, before sending it into the instrument or preparing the solution with new boiling water, to reduce the carbon dioxide content in the solution.
5.2.3 Acetic acid salt spray test (AASS test)
Add appropriate amount of glacial acetic acid (CH3COOH) to the sodium
chloride solution, which is prepared in accordance with 5.1, to ensure that the pH value of the collected liquid, in the salt spray chamber (6.2), is between 3.1 and 3.3, at 25 ??C ?? 2 ??C. If the pH value of the initially prepared solution is 3.0 ~ 3.1, the pH value of the collected solution is generally within the specified range. Use a potentiometric pH meter to measure the pH value. The pH value shall be measured, by an electrode which is suitable for weakly buffered sodium chloride solution (dissolved in deionized water). The pH value of the solution is adjusted with a solution, which is prepared by analytical pure glacial acetic acid (CH3COOH), sodium hydroxide (NaOH) or sodium bicarbonate (NaHCO3).
5.2.4 Copper accelerated acetic acid salt spray test (CASS test)
In the salt solution, which is prepared according to 5.1, add copper chloride dihydrate (CuCl2 ?€? 2H2O)], which has a concentration of 0.26 g/L ?? 0.02 g/L [that is, 0.205 g/L ?? 0.015 g/L anhydrous copper chloride (CuCl2)]. The method of adjusting the pH value of the solution is the same as 5.2.3.
5.3 Filtration
If necessary, filter the solution, before adding it to the storage tank of the equipment, to remove any solid matter, that may block the spray holes of the device.
6 Test equipment
6.1 Component protection
6.1.1 All components, which are in contact with salt spray or test solution, shall be made of corrosion-resistant materials, which do not affect the corrosiveness of the solution.
6.1.2 The test specimen support shall be such, that different types of substrates do not affect each other, meanwhile the support itself shall not affect the test specimen.
6.2 Salt spray chamber
6.2.1 The spray in the chamber shall be evenly distributed. For the chambers, which have a capacity of less than 0.4 m3, due to the capacity restriction, it shall carefully consider the effect of the loading of the chamber on the spray distribution and temperature. The salt spray shall not be sprayed directly on the test specimen; however, it shall be distributed over the entire chamber AND fall naturally on the test specimen. The top of the box shall be designed to prevent the accumulated solution from dripping onto the test specimen, during the test. 6.2.2 The shape and size of the salt spray chamber shall be such, that the collection rate of the solution in the chamber meets the requirements of 10.3. 6.2.3 Based on considerations of environmental protection, the equipment should adopt appropriate methods, to treat exhaust gas and waste liquid. Note: The design diagram of the salt spray chamber is as shown in Appendix C (see Figure C.1 and Figure C.2).
6.3 Heating and temperature control device
The heating system keeps the temperature inside the chamber up to the
requirements of 10.1. The distance, between the temperature measurement area and the inner wall of the chamber and the heat source, shall not be less than 100 mm.
6.4 Spray device
6.4.1 The spray device consists of a compressed air supply, a salt water tank, one or more sprayers.
6.4.2 The compressed air, which is supplied to the sprayer, shall pass through the filter, to remove oil and solid particles. The spray pressure shall be controlled within the range of 70 kPa1) ~ 170 kPa. The pressure value is usually 98 kPa ?? 10 kPa; however, it can be changed, according to the type of chamber and sprayer used.
6.4.3 In order to prevent the evaporation of moisture in the mist (aerosol), the 1 1 kPa = 1 kN/m2 = 0.01 atm = 0.01 bar = 0.145 psi.
