Midget Salt Spray Testing Machine For Rapid Corrosion Test

[Full Text]



R.Kamalakannan, B.Arunkumar, S.Arun kumar, C.Bhavishnu





The metals in the environment can corrode in an ordinary condition and some special conditions. The main aim of this project is to design and fabricate salt spray testing machine which is able to identify the corrosion formation in any type of metals; from this testing process we can improvise the life span of the particular metal. For example, a motorbike has a paint coated footrest made of stainless steel, so this part when comes in contact with atmosphere nearly after a year it is corroded so if salt spray testing machine is used at this point can found out that for additional coating of paint, whether it will withstand up to longer duration likewise, this process can be analysed. This salt spray testing machine is fabricated for low cost and the metals are coated and analysed.
