    1.1 This standard covers recommendations and precautions for cleaning and descaling of new stainless steel parts, assemblies, equipment, and installed systems. These recommendations are not intended to be mandatory, but rather are presented as procedures for guidance when it is recognized that for a particular service it is desired to remove surface contaminants that may impair the normal corrosion resistance of the particular stainless grade or may cause product contamination. Although they apply primarily to materials in the composition ranges of the austenitic, fer-ritic, and martensitic stainless steels, the practices described may also be useful for cleaning other metals if due consideration is given to corrosion and possible metallureical effects.
