Ferroxyl testing???

Ferroxyl testing???

Is anyone familiar with ferroxyl testing of titanium?  I have a requirement to "ferroxyl test" titanium components before shipment.  How is this accomplished?  Is it a difficult test?

RE: Ferroxyl testing???

ASTM A 380 Standard Practice for Cleaning, Descaling, and Passivation of Stainless Steel Parts, Equipment, and Systems has a section (7.3.4) that describes the ferroxyl test.  You can obtain more information using the following link:


RE: Ferroxyl testing???

The test is very easy. The easiest way to carry it out, particularly if you have a large area to test, is to use a hand-held spray bottle. To test the solution, squirt some on a piece of carbon steel and watch it turn blue!
