Characterization of damaging phenomena interesting tin-based organ pipes of different ages

Abstract

Several parts of degraded organ pipes belonging to some organs produced in different periods (from the 18th to 20th century) and from different Italian geographical areas have been examined and investigated in order to identify the possible causes of the degradation phenomena. An analysis through DSC-DTA measurements has been performed to define the crystallographic transformation of the studied alloys and a metallographic analysis has been realized to point out the microstructural characteristics. The morphological analysis has been improved by SEM equipped with an EDS device which permits a quantitative chemical characterization of the intact zones and of the degraded ones. The presence of chlorides has been identified as the starting factor of the degradation phenomena.
