AL-6XN Alloy Piping: Applications in Desalination
The presentation discusses the test results and field experience of the super austenitic alloy AL-6XN. The paper indicates that this alloy is unlikely to suffer from corrosion attack or stress cracking in the presence of chlorides at temperatures when used in desalination processes. This paper is very commercial in nature....
Panel: Superaustenitic Stainless for Corrosive Environments
This presentation briefly covers the selection of metals for use in desalination processes. It is an introduction of various materials including austenitic, duplex and super austenitic stainless steels. Also provided are overviews of items to consider in metal selection including localized corrosion, fabrication, availability, mechanical propertie...
