Standrad and urban environments often contain a complex mixture of contaminants that interact synergistically to greatly accelerate or retard the corrosive action of individual gas species.

ISA Environmental Classifications: Changes and New Requirements – Purafil

To avoid these practical difficulties described above, the nature of environments is defined in terms of the rate at which they react with copper and silver. As a direct measure of overall corrosion potential, reactivity monitoring involves the placement of specially prepared copper and silver coupons Figure 2 in the operating environments that are subsequently analyzed by coulometric cathodic, electrolytic reduction with results normalized to a day exposure.

The open square data points are for data centers with known corrosion-related hardware failures. Update your member profile, set your communications preferences, find products and services that are right for you, and more — all from the convenience of your ISA website. Explanation of contaminant severity levels There is a broad distribution of contaminant concentrations and reactivity levels existing within industries using process measurement and control equipment, information technology ITtelecommunications, networking and data center equipment, and electronic office equipment.

ISA stanvard Beamex release a new, free calibration eBook. Because of this, more and more manufacturers have become very aggressive by placing the onus srandard their customers to provide proof that they are meeting all of their product warranty requirements, including establishing and maintaining an ISA Class G1 environment. Equally syandard is recognition of the fact that temperature fluctuations dramatically affect relative humidity and often induce local condensation.


The study found that the silver corrosion rate is a much better predictor of corrosion-related hardware failures, compared to the prior practice of relying on copper corrosion rates alone to predict failures. Some examples of networking equipment include telecommunications hardware, switches, and routers.

ISA Environmental Classifications: Changes and New Requirements

The classification of reactive environments is shown in the table below. The solid triangle data points are for data centers with no known corrosion-related hardware failures.

A typical failure mechanism of electronic systems in polluted environments is the reaction of atmospheric sulfur with exposed metals — particularly copper and silver. Environmental classifications have been established in the standard according to the type of contaminant, and within each classification, severity levels have also been established.

Although water is universally present in industrial atmospheres, the concentration varies widely. Contact Purafil to find out how we can assist you with all of your environmental compliance requirements; from assessment with CCCs, to establishing a contaminant control strategy, to continuous monitoring with the OnGuard Smart to assure warranty compliance.

ISA has the resources and expert networks that you need — no matter what position you hold in our industries.

E71.04 reverse, however, is not necessarily true. ISA members have access to dozens of unique benefits. Performance degradation can occur rapidly or over many years, depending on the particular gas combinations and concentration levels present at a site. Parameter limit values are tabulated for each classification and severity level of the contaminant. Some environments are severely corrosive, while others are mild. But what do these classifications mean in actual use?


Contamination effects Each location may, and most likely will, have different combinations iwa concentration levels of corrosive gaseous contaminants. Automation Federation completes third review and update of the original Automation Competency Model.

Founded inISA develops widely used global standards; certifies industry professionals; provides education and training; publishes books and technical articles; hosts conferences and exhibits; and provides networking and career development programs for its 40, members andcustomers around the world. This revised edition of the standard has several new features and includes updates due to the changes required for electronic equipment based on RoHS regulations.

ISA to provide end-user perspective in new international smart manufacturing collaboration. The International Society of Automation www. All RoHS-compliant electronic equipment and devices are more sensitive to environmental conditions than their pre-RoHS versions. A more convenient and quantitative approach is through the use of reactivity monitoring. Are you sure you want to report this review as abusive? This classification system provides users and manufacturers of electronic hardware with a means of specifying the type standaed concentration of airborne contaminants to which a specified piece of electronic hardware may be exposed.
