130M Balancing
The two primary factors to determine permissible unbalance (also called the balancing tolerance) are the mass of the rotating part and the maximum operational speed.
ISO 1940 is obsolete and has been replaced with ISO 21940-11, edition 2016-11-15. The EasyBalance software Tolerance Calculator has been updated to this new ISO standard.

===== International PA10- Red Oxide, low sheen
A single pack anticorrosive vinyl etch primer. Suitable for use as an anticorrosive primer for application to Steel and Aluminium surfaces above the waterline. Also as a concrete floor finish; and as a primer for non ferrous metals

Apply on a dry and clean surface with a temperature > 3 °C the dew point (to avoid condensation)

153o Heat treatment
is a process of heat treating, which is used to increase the toughness of iron-based alloys. Tempering is usually performed after hardening, to reduce some of the excess hardness,

Annealing (stress relieving)
is a heat treatment that alters the physical and sometimes chemical properties of a material to increase its ductility and reduce its hardness,

153o Stainless Steel
Chlorine readily forms chlorides when in contact with gases such as methane, hydrogen sulphide and ammonia. Hydrochloric acid (HCl) can also be formed by these reactions.
Chlorine dissolves readily in water forming hydrochloric and hypochlorous (HOCl) acids, which is very corrosive mixture.

Chlorine can also assist in the oxidation of dissolved gasses, such as sulphur dioxide (SO2), forming sulphuric and hydrochloric acid in water.
It is these oxidising properties that make chlorine an aggressive component in waters.

= Corrosion resistance of stainless steels
Chlorine in contact with water and as a dissolved gas, sometimes found in water treatment applications, is potentially aggressive to stainless steels.
Localised crevice & pitting corrosion attack is a hazard in water and stress corrosion cracking (SCC) can be an additional hazard in damp chlorine gas, if the temperature is high enough.
Condensates formed over chlorinated water in storage tanks have been known to result in staining or pitting to stainless steels. Improvements to ventilation in such situations should help reduce the risk of attack.

= Chlorine as a sterlizing or sanitising agent
When using chlorine as a sterilizer or sanitiser in contact with 316 type stainless steel items, a maximum of 15-20 ppm (mg/lt) 'free' chlorine is suggested, for maximum times of 24 hours, followed by a thorough chlorine free water flush.
As with any additions, thorough dilution around the injection point is important to avoid localised 'over-concentration' problems.

Residual chlorine levels in waters of 2ppm maximum for 304 and 5ppm for 316 types should not normally be considered a crevice corrosion hazard.

= Chlorine dioxide as a sanitiser in contact with stainless steels.
Chlorine dioxide (ClO2), occurs naturally as a gas, but is normally dissolved in water, as the gas is highly explosive.
Although a powerful oxidiser, unlike chlorine it does not breakdown to release chlorides. The chlorine and oxygen work together tending to form chlorites in the oxidation process. Although the chlorite can break down to form chlorides, it is a weaker oxidising agent than the chlorine dioxide and so can be expected to be less of a hazard to stainless steels when used as a water sanitiser.

Source data can be found at Outokumpu Corrosion Handbook - chlorine and chlorine dioxide.

===== Pitting Resistance Equivalent Number
The most common is PREN = 1 x %Cr + 3.3 x %Mo + 16 x %N
The PRE ranges from 10.5 for the grades with the lowest corrosion resistance to more than 40.

158o Timber
H1= The treatment level for low hazard situations where timber is not exposed to the weather. Its major use is for framing timber and interior linings. This is split into two categories.
H1.1= Timber used in situations protected from the weather, dry in service and where resistance to borer only is required.
H1.2= Timber used in situations protected from the weather but where there is a risk of moisture exposure conducive to decay.

H2= This level is similar to H1 but includes an insecticidal treatment to protect against termite attack for use in Australia.

H3= For moderate decay situations where timber is exposed to the weather but is not in contact with the ground. This is also split into two categories.
H3.1= Timber used outdoors above ground, exposed to the weather – generally in non-structural applications; i.e. fascia boards, weatherboards.
H3.2= Timber used outdoors above ground, exposed to weather or protected from the weather but with a risk of water entrapment; i.e. decking, fencing and pergolas.

H4= Used in high decay areas such as ground contact or fresh water. Generally used for fence posts and landscaping timbers.

H5= Used for severe decay hazard risks such as ground contact where conditions of severe or continuous wetting may occur. End uses for this hazard class are house piles and poles, retaining walls, crib walling and horticultural supports.

H6= This hazard class is for marine use. Wharf piles and fenders, marine and jetty components regularly immersed in seawater or estuarine ground.
