Hydrogen (H) determination in titanium according to ASTM E1447

You want to measure hydrogen (H) in your titanium according to the ASTM E1447 standard?

As part of quality control, regulatory compliance or following a product failure, you need to validate the hydrogen (H) content in your titanium according to ASTM E1447.

ASTM E1447 describes the standard test methods for the determination of hydrogen in titanium and titanium alloys by the thermal conductivity/infrared detection method using inert gas fusion. 

Our laboratory, specialized in elemental chemical analysis of hydrogen and having state-of-the-art analytical methods, is here to assist you in this process.

FILAB has several elemental analyzers to quantify the Hydrogen (H) content in your titanium according to ASTM E1447

Thanks to its high-level multidisciplinary team, the FILAB laboratory offers a wide range of basic metallurgical analysis services in accordance with the regulations in force (ASTM…) to control all your titanium raw materials and finished products.

ASTM International (American Standards of Technical Material) is a standards organization that develops technical standards for materials, products, systems and services. It was founded in 1898 in the United States. 

ASTM International makes a positive commitment to public health and safety by defining standards. These standards are developed by international members of volunteer technical experts and research departments. For example, standards exist for the determination of hydrogen concentration in your titanium with the standards ASTM e1447.

The presence of hydrogen in titanium considerably alters the mechanical properties and ductility. Metallic materials can be hydrogen embrittled. To determine the quantity of Hydrogen in Reactive Metals and Reactive Metal Alloys, our laboratory refers to the ASTM E1447 test method.There are two main sources of hydrogen embrittlement in metals, particularly titanium : 


In the first case, hydrogen is already present in the metal. Internal embrittlement occurs during the manufacturing process: casting, surface cleaning, pickling, electroplating, machining, welding or heat treatment.In the second case, embrittlement is external. Hydrogen is introduced during use, due to environmental factors such as corrosion or lack of protection of the metal or titanium alloys.
