A wide-range of metallurgical testing is provided to reveal the character of metal samples including grain size determination, plating evaluation, case depth, alpha case, surface contamination, grain flow, intergranular corrosion, Knoop and Vickers testing and many other metallography methods.
1 and 2, show for the same material (alloyed steel 40Cr10, bronze CuAl III RNR) independent by working fluid (distillated water, drinking water and sea water), mass losses are produced only by mechanical effect of cavitation erosion, without substantial contribution of surface or intergranular corrosion.
