Corrosion Cells

The Corrosion Measuring Cells KMZ 3 and KMZ 5 feature ideal application for probe position in electrochemical corrosion measurements and general electrochemical laboratory use in conjunction with adequate electronic devices. The cell KMZ 5 is a water-jacketed version with cell container suitable for connection to constant temperature circulators.
The measuring cells have different cell tops with standard taper joints for the pick-up of the working and counter electrodes, as well as the intermediate vessel with reference electrode and liquid junction tube including a Haber Luggin capillary. Working electrodes with interchangeable specimen holder, cells for extended temperature ranges and tailor-made cells, i.e. for quality check of conductive coated flat glass plates, show the wide range of application-specific versions.

The ASTM G5 Corrosion Cell is a one-litre electrochemical cell designed for electrochemical corrosion measurements.  The ASTM G5 is similar to the cell specified in ASTM G5 “Making Potentiostatic and Potentiodynamic Anodic Polarization Measurements”.  It contains a fixture to secure the corrosion sample to a 3-48 threaded support rod.  A Reference Electrode Bridge Tube is provided to contain the Saturated Calomel Reference Electrode, included with the ASTM G5.  The Corrosion Cell also contains two graphite Counter Electrodes.  Capabilty for deaeration of the electrolyte is also included.

The ASTM G5 incorporates a clever mounting system for the Working Electrode that allows adjustment of the vertical position.  This makes it easy to orient the tip of the Reference Electrode Bridge Tube so that it is close to the surface of the Working Electrode.
