SIST EN 13565-1:2019
EN 13565-1:2019 (E)

For large non-moving parts and non-pressure components the test may be carried out using

representative material samples e.g. where the large component comprises a cast and machined

component the test piece shall be similarly cast and machined. Sub-assemblies of moving parts may

be tested.
4.5.3 Internal corrosion

Other than the exception below, those parts of components which are exposed to foam concentrate,

foam solution, other specific liquids, or to unusual atmospheric conditions shall be resistant to that

exposure when tested in accordance with Annex N.

The test may be carried out either using the complete component or a sub-assembly comprising the

complete water/foam passageways.

At the conclusion of the test, check that the mechanical operation of all working parts is unimpaired

and that there are no significant corrosion effects inside or outside. Significant corrosion defects are
