Inhibitor for Hydrostatic testing Pressure Vessel

Inhibitor for Hydrostatic testing Pressure Vessel

(OP)
i found spec hydrostatic test for column/pressure vessel mentioned that the water hydro test shall be mixed with inhibitor.

the water shall have a maximum chloride content of 30ppm and shall in addition contain an inhibitor, the inhibitor shall be constituted of 3 ppm of sodium nitrate (Na N03) per ppm of chloride in water, and of 12 ppm of oxygen scavenger per ppm of oxygen in water.

Please inform the product recommendation of NaNO3 and oxygen scavenger or give me solution for it.

regards,
KRN

RE: Inhibitor for Hydrostatic testing Pressure Vessel

Hydrazine is used as an oxygen scavenger.

how to get product data sheet of hydrazine?

and how about NaNo3? do you have recommendation?

RE: Inhibitor for Hydrostatic testing Pressure Vessel

Sodium nitrite is also an oxygen scavenger, and it converts to sodium nitrate as it reacts with oxygen. Somewhat safer to handle than hydrazine also.

RE: Inhibitor for Hydrostatic testing Pressure Vessel

"Somewhat safer to handle than hydrazine also"

. . just like vinegar is somewhat safer than Hydrofluoric acid. Are you British perhaps, btrueblood?
