Particularly suited for testing on metallic fragments on cylinders molten in resin.
Cell 596 fulfills recommendations of A.S.T.M. designation G5-69(964).
The cell consists of a glass container with 6 ground-glass joints. The specimen is mounted on a special sample-holder through the central neck.
Two large anodic compartments, terminated by frited-glass disk, accept platinum counterelectrodes, keeping separated the related reaction or gas development.
A Luggin capillary, coupling the reference electrode, can be set at the shortest distance from specimen, thus minimizing iR drop. Flat bottom allows stirring while electrolyte circulation can be made through inlet-outlet.
