"Galvotec Anodes - Protecting The World Against Corrosion - With Integrity"
ANODE - Laboratory Testing
Accredited to ISO/IEC17025:2005 by A2lA
(American Association for Laboratory Accreditation)
Laboratory testing of sacrificial anodes is required to insure that the highest quality product is being delivered. Chemical and Electrochemical Testing is a vital part of the Quality Assurance and Quality Control procedures for anode manufacturing.
The fastest and most accurate analytical techniques are utilized. Prior to casting each heat of material is analyzed by Optical Emission Spectroscopy to insure proper chemical composition.
Certified and Traceable Standards are employed
Equipment for Chemical Analysis includes:
- Optical Emission Spectrometer
- Atomic Absorption Spectrometer
Electrochemical testing methods employed are:
- NACE TMO-190 (impressed current or Hydrogen Evolution)
- DNV RP-B401
- ASTM G97
For Aluminum, Zinc, and Magnesium Sacrificial Anodes
Testing can be performed in any electrolyte
- Artificial Sea Water
- Backfill Electrolytes
- Ambient Temperature
- Hot Temperature
- Cold Temperature
- Saline Mud
- 14-Day Weight Loss
- Anode Current Capacity
- Anode Potential
- Anode Efficiency
- Short Tem Testing
- Long Term Testing
- Control Samples are employed
ISO 9001:2008 Certified by DNV
All testing is performed on premises by trained and experienced technologists and technicians.
Third party verification is constantly utilized for guaranteed analytical accuracy and precision.
