Some challenges associated with autoclave corrosion testing

Autoclave testing is crucial to understanding how corrosion impacts materials and equipment performance in a wide range of applications. However, testing can be a challenging process:

Hard to Use

Autoclaves can be difficult to set up and use, which can lead to wasted time and can create potential safety issues.

Inconsistent Operation

A lack of testing guidelines means that users have their own approach to running tests which can lead to mixed results.


Contamination can cause test results to be random and unexplainable leading to false conclusions and inefficient testing programmes

Safety Issue

Despite the guidelines in place to ensure safe operation of autoclaves, many users are unsure of their responsibilities.
