Citric acid passivation as an alternative to nitric acid treatments Citric acid treatments can also be considered as an alternative to nitric acid as both provide the oxidising conditions necessary for passivation. Range C Time mins.
ASTM A Passivation Standard | Able Electropolishing
Stainless steels cannot be passivated unless the steel surface is clean and free from contamination and scale from welding operations. For certain exceptional applications, additional requirements which are not covered by this practice may be specified upon agreement between the manufacturer and the purchaser.
The standard also allows any combination of citric acid concentration, temperature and time, provided that the passivation test criteria can be met. Unlike ASTM A, the standard does not require specific solutions for particular stainless steel grades or types, although 3 specific treatments are identified. It was at one time considered that an oxidizing treatment was necessary to establish this passive film, but it is now accepted that this a3380 will form spontaneously in an oxygen-containing environment providing that the surface has been thoroughly cleaned or descaled.
Specific treatments are however also specified. Citric acid is a less hazardous method and has environmental benefits in terms of ‘NOx’ fume emission and waste acid disposal. While the practice provides recommendations and information concerning the use of acids and other cleaning and descaling agents, it cannot encompass detailed cleaning procedures for specific types of equipment or installations.

This process is described in a general way in 6. Pickling, passivation and zstm iron contamination with nitric acid Passivation treatments are sometimes specified, but it is important to consider whether this is strictly necessary or not. Although they apply primarily to materials in the composition ranges of the austenitic, ferritic, and martensitic stainless steels, the xstm described may also be useful for cleaning other metals if due consideration is given to corrosion and possible metallurgical effects.

Ast the case of classes C3 and C4, a two step process is defined, with a clean water rinse between the two steps, shown in the asmt below. It therefore in no way precludes the necessity for careful planning and judgment in the selection and implementation of such procedures.
Methods are described for the detection of free iron and transparent chemical and oily deposits. Unless otherwise specified, it is this definition of passivation that is taken as the meaning of a specified requirement for passivation.

Process Class Stainless Steel Types C1 or C2 Austenitics, austenitic precipitation hardening and duplex C3 High chromium martensitics C4 Ferritics, martensitics and martensitic precipitation hardening. In addition, visual inspection of internal surfaces is often impossible because of the configuration of the item.
The term “iron,” when hereinafter referred to as a surface contaminant, shall denote free iron. Passivation treatments are sometimes specified, but it is important to consider whether this is strictly necessary or not.
Passivation of stainless steels Introduction Stainless steels are designed to naturally self-passivate whenever a clean surface is exposed to an environment that can provide enough oxygen to form the chromium rich oxide surface layer, on which the corrosion resistance of these alloys depends.

Citric acid treatments can also be considered as an alternative aatm nitric acid as both provide astmm oxidising conditions necessary for passivation.
Some of the various meanings associated with the term passivation that are in common usage include the following: Parts treated however must pass specific tests to confirm the effectiveness of the passivation, although in practice the tests are for the detection of the effects of residual iron contamination on the surface of the parts.

ASTM A380 Passivation Standard
Visual inspection is suitable for the detection of gross contamination, scale, rust, and particulates, but may not reveal the presence of thin films of oil or residual chemical films. Meaningful tests to establish the degree of cleanness of a surface are few, and those are often difficult to administer and to evaluate objectively.
In order to avoid ambiguity in the setting of requirements, it may be necessary for the purchaser to define precisely the intended meaning of passivation. In addition, this standard also includes citric acid treatments. Naturally occurring conditions such air or aerated water will do this and so under many exposure conditions stainless steels will naturally self-passivate.
This standard covers both nitric and citric acid treatments. Office and Postal Address:
