Notes:
(1) May only be waived by the responsible Saudi Aramco, ASC, and AOC Inspection Offices.
(2) Release of purchase order line items is dependant on the results of this test as directed by CSD.
(3) See form IR000003 for instructions on using this form.
(4) H2S in gas Cylinders is the only acceptable practice for generating H2S (Purity shall be 99.5% minimum). The used nitrogen shall be minimum
industrial grade, 99.5% pure.
(5) The control samples shall be provided by the manufacturer / vendor and demonstrate a CLR of at least 20% in solution "A" for the test parameters
to be considered acceptable, only after this shall the actual specimens be evaluated.
6) The rate of bubbling shall be at least 200 ml per minute, per liter of test solution for at least 60 minutes; thereafter a positive pressure maintained for
the reminder of the test of H2S gas.
(7) Adequate ventilation, permanent H2S monitors located by the entry door and inside near the test setup (near ground level), alarm system with
flashing light and horn, gas masks with either oxygen or proper cartridges, and safe disposal of spent solutions and chemicals.
(8) Pseudo-HIC Resistant steel shall not be used to fabricate equipment intended for sour service application. Steel that passes the HIC test, but has
not been intentionally manufactured to be HIC resistant steel shall not be used.
