1. Scope 1.1 Several methods are used to evaluate the rust of ferrous parts immersed in petroleum products in case water is mixed. Those method are using the same ferrous spindle, and this method is proposing an automated rating of the spindle indicating precisely the % of corrosion and the correspondence to the visual rating generally used and based on limited numbers of ranges. This rusting evaluation is used for inhibited mineral oils, fuels and also for evaluation corrosiveness of pipelines cargoes. 1.2 This automated rating covers the inspection and measurement of specimens that have been treated in particular according to the experimental conditions of Test Methods D665, D7548, and NACE TM0172. 1.3 UnitsThe values stated in SI units are to be regarded as the standard. No other units of measurement are included in this standard. 1.4 This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety, health, and environmental practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use. 1.5 This international standard was developed in accordance with internationally recognized principles on standardization established in the Decision on Principles for the Development of international Standards, Guides and Recommendations issued by the World Trade Organization Technical Barriers to Trade (TBT) Committee.
