Solid particle erosion can cause serious damage to equipment in many industrial environments such as to oil and gas pipelines and subsea components, steam turbine blades, pumps, fluidized bed combustors, and heat exchangers.

Solid Particle Impingement Erosion Test (ASTM G-76). Material Erosion by Solid Particle Impacts

Dynaflow possesses test facility to investigate material erosion and resistance to solid particle impingement.

We can conduct tests as per ASTM G-76 and its variants depending on customer’s needs. .

These solid particle impingement erosion tests enable the user to determine the resistance of the material or coating to repeated impacts of solid particles, to select the most resistant options, or to evaluate the damage mechanisms and the effect of test variables.

These tests are Characterized By:

  • Adjustable impact speeds: up to 100 m/s. (30 m/s for ASTM G-76)
  • Controllable abrasive particle feed rates. (2 g/min for ASTM G-76)
  • Various particle type and sizes. (50 m angular Al2O3 for ASTM G-76)
  • Adjustable impact angles. (90 for ASTM G-76)
