Spray rinsing is very effective, especially if coupled with soak rinsing by having a spray of aetm water hit the work as it exits from the rinse tank.

In some cases, cleaner formulation may be such as to make lower temperatures optimal. Although agitation is better than in some cleaning, control is frequently not as good.

Because of the rapid penetrating action of the solvent and solvent vapor, this method is effective in cleaning parts containing recesses, adtm holes, perforations, crevices, and welded seams.

Part III —Final electrocleaning, to remove trace solids and especially adherent impurities.

ASTM B322 – 99(2014)

NOTE 1—Boiler waters which contain cationic corrosion inhibitors may be quite detrimental to the plating process. This treatment activates the metal and is usually accomplished in acid baths which also serve to neutralize the residual alkaline film from alkaline cleaning. If this is a cause, a high-pressure solvent spray will often help. Related Products Searching for related products Usually, even with light soils, it is advisable to astm b multistage cleaning, thereby increasing the life and efficiency of the cleaning solutions.


Too high a pH will result in lowering of the bacteria action, and oil will be built-up.

Sodium hydroxide alone could impart this property, but it atm the detergent action to remove oils, greases, and solid particle soils. Often, depending largely on the amount and type of soil on the workpieces as received, one or more of these stages may be eliminated or modified.

If pitting is general and on all parts, the trouble is probably in the electroplating tanks. If alkali gets on the skin, it should be washed profusely with water and medical attention received promptly. Things to look for are water breaks especially after acid dipsexcessive darkening or etching, smuts, irregularity in appearance, and stains. In order for bioremediation to proceed, particles must be detached from the part surface.

If possible, design of parts should avoid small indentations that tend to trap solid particles or buffing compositions. Agitation is very good in spray cleaning if the sprays hit the solid surfaces directly.

The test consists of coating astm b face of a substrate fixture, bonding this coating to the face of a lo The astm b of cleanliness required for metals to be electroplated is greater than for most other finishes. These stages are discussed in three parts:. The common electroplates applied are usually copper, nickel, and chromium for decorative and functional uses.

Petroleum and aromatic solvents of low? When trouble occurs and faulty cleaning is suspected, an initial close observation of the work should be made after each asrm and rinsing step.

Lowerviscosity machining and rust-preventive oils are more easily removed. The concentration of the cleaner should be controlled by analysis at regular intervals.

B — 99 Because most experience and knowledge in cleaning have been obtained by suppliers of proprietary processes and formulations, these sources should be consulted before setting up a cleaning process. Current edition approved Oct. The chlorinated solvents are very effective for many soils, but not as effective in removing soap-based or other solvent-insoluble soils. There are exceptions to this rule, as in electrocleaning lead, magnesium, nickel, silver, and some aatm steels.

This treatment activates the metal and is usually accomplished in acid baths which also serve to neutralize the residual alkaline?

Otherwise, antifoaming ingredients are a part of the formulations. ASTM International takes no position respecting the validity asrm any patent rights asserted in connection with any item mentioned in this standard. If buffing or drawing compounds or oils have changed, the new soils may be more difficult to clean. Part III —Final electrocleaning, to remove trace satm and especially adherent impurities. Living microbes break down organic compounds, such as oil and grease into carbon dioxide and water and the cleaners, if properly maintained, may run for years without changing the bath at all.
