The Passi Flash 3036 is the latest innovation in passivation testing for stainless steel equipment and parts. This Koslow kit is integral to many of the world’s largest pharmaceutical companies’ SOPs. Our customers rely on Koslow to ensure the quality of their products and to comply with standards. Across many industries, folks are worried about their stainless steel parts and equipment showing signs of wear or corrosion. Most people don’t even realize that stainless steel can corrode. Nasty-looking discoloration can occur on essential processing equipment, leading to contamination and diminished surface appearance. Manufacturers and engineers are all shooting for the highest quality for their customers. Luckily, the Passi-Flash 3036 can alert you before you run into problems. Performing regular Passi-Tests as part of your routine maintenance of critical components can prevent discoloration. Use this kit in combination with ASTM-approved passivation cleaning procedures. No need to bring in an army of surface treatment experts, or send your parts to an outside lab. Use the Passi-Flash to get instant, reliable results in your own facility.

A Significant Advance in Passivation Testing
Say goodbye to the old-fashioned and inconvenient copper sulfate, ferroxyl, and salt spray tests.
The Passi-Flash 3036 is a rapid response method for the verification of stainless steel parts and equipment. The 3036 is the single most efficient method for measuring the corrosion tendency of stainless steel surfaces. Through a galvanic process, it detects surface free iron, which can lead to discoloration and corrosion. These free iron particles may arise due to cutting, mechanical use, grinding, or chemical contamination of stainless steel parts.
The 3036 lets you know if…
-The surface is passive. It has been through an approved passivation bath.
-Free iron particles are present on the surface. This surface is Non-Passive.
-The surface is without a passive oxide layer. This surface is Non-Passive.
Each test takes only 1 second and is simple enough for anyone to perform. This kit can be used to test metal parts of any size. This includes tanks, tubing, valves, and more, even in hard-to-reach places with the help of the Passi-Extension Arm.
For each test, the digital meter displays a value showing whether the part is in a passive or non-passive range. When conducting a series of tests, the Passi-Flash will store your data for you to retrieve and share later, saving you time and energy.
The Passi-Tester can be used with all chromium-containing stainless steels, such as 304 and 316, and precipitation-hardened steels like 17-4, 15-5, and 17-7. A passive stainless steel standard is included in the kit. 21CFR211.65(a) Current good manufacturing practice for finished pharmaceuticals- equipment construction-The ASME BPE 2014 and the Federal Spec QQ-P-35C approved this surface corrosion potential measurement as a valid method for checking passivation of stainless steel parts and equipment. Use this kit with complete confidence.
