Report: Dynamic Corrosion Study
MIOX Mixed Oxidant Solution (MOS) is a more effective cleaner and sanitizer for Clean-in-Place (CIP) applications. As part of MIOX's application research to quantify MOS effectiveness, extensive studies were performed to demonstrate that MOS will not cause harm to production equipment infrastructure when used in CIP applications. There are many different types of corrosion studies documented by ASTM standards, and this briefing describes just one type of corrosion study specifically designed to simulate the CIP environment that stainless steel surfaces are exposed to over an extended period of time. While this precise method is not described by ASTM, ASTM methods G1, G31, and G46 were used to help design these tests. Experiments and analyses with high resolution electron microscopy to detect sub-microscopic pits were conducted entirely by a third party laboratory (Analytical Solutions Inc., Albuquerque, NM).
