Corrosion Cell

Avesta cell

The perfect cell for pitting corrosion studies

The Avesta cell takes its name from Avesta Steel and is designed to prevent crevice corrosion between the gasket and the sample from occurring

The Avesta Cell is an electrochemical cell developed for pitting corrosion testing (ASTM G150). It is designed to avoid micro crevice corrosion formed between the working electrode and the gasket at the bottom aperture of the cell. A filter paper ring placed between the sample and the gasket is flooded by distilled water in order to eliminate crevice corrosion. The water flow is controlled by a peristaltic pump (EL-AV-008) which delivers 0.5 to 5 mL/h.
