What is Bresle Test Kit – Chloride Test Kit ?

Bresle Test kit is use to determine concentration of soluble salts on metal surfaces prior to coating application, such as painting using the conductivity gauge and bresle patch. These salts can cause serious adhesion problems after time.

The Bresle method uses the difference of conductivity of salts in water, each salt having a characteristic conductivity-versus-concentration relationship. The correlation between concentration and conductivity can be found in “Handbook of Chemistry and Physics”. This relationship is useful only if the dissolved salt is known. Sodium chloride, the main salt in sea water, causes a big increase in conductivity with increased concentration.

A special patch is applied to the surface to be tested, and a specified volume of deionized water is injected under the patch. Any soluble salts present on the surface will dissolve in the water. The fluid is extracted and its conductivity measured.

The conductivity of the collected salt solution depends on the volume of water used and its initial conductivity, and the amount of salt in solution depends on the area of the patch. The calculation of the salt per area is based on increased conductivity but in the IMO PSPC method the salt is calculated as sodium chloride, in the ISO 8502-9 method it is calculated as a specific mixture of salts, but expressed as Sodium Chloride.

We provide the bresle test kit products as follow :

TQC Bresle – Chloride Test Kit complies with the ISO 8502-6 and ISO 8502-9 standards. ( VIDEO )

ISO 8502-6 and ISO 8502-9 describe, that the Bresle Method to assess the level of soluble salts by using a Bresle patch or Bresle sampler, distilled water and also a conductivity gauge. The conductivity is mainly directly proportional to the concentration of dissolved chloride ions in the solution. The kits includes all the necessary equipment to execute a bresle test, that will indicate the contamination of soluble salts on blast-cleaned surfaces prior to coating. Inside the TQC Bresle – Chloride Test Kits is a conductivity gauge, used for the assessment of soluble salt ions as chlorides, sulphates and nitrates.

Contamination of blast-media

TQC Bresle – Chloride Test Kit is also suitable to determine the contamination of blast-media in use. This important test described in the ISO 11127-6 and also ISO 11127-7 standards, helps to prevent that the dissolved salts in the recycled abrasive media or water will not re-contaminate the surface being cleaned.

  • USB, WiFi, and Bluetooth connectivity to PosiSoft PC, Mac, and also Smartphone software
  • Certificate of Calibration showing traceability to NIST included (Long Form)
Conforms to ISO 8502-6/8502-9, US Navy NSI 009-32, US Navy PPI 63101-000, AS 3894.6, IMO MSC.215(82), IMO MSC.244(83), SSPC Guide 15, ISO 11127-6, and also ASTM D4940.

The PosiTector SST includes a certified and traceable conductivity probe specifically designed for ISO 8502-6,9.

Included with each probe is a Long Form Certificate of Calibration, and the following parameters are measured by the PosiTector SST Soluble Salt Meter :

  • Conductivity (µS/cm)
  • Sampling Temperature (C° or F°) normalized to 25°C
  • Test duration

Using the measured conductivity value and also the sample test volume (set within the gauge menu), then the surface density of the salts (mg/m2 or µg/cm2) is automatically calculated in accordance with ISO 8502-9. Saving the gauge operator time and also eliminating the chance of a calculation error.
