CORROSION PREVENTION
MATERIALS SELECTION Introduction The first step in determining the materials of construction for a project is an evaluation of the environments that will be present to determine if they are corrosive to the materials commonly used. As a general rule, carbon steel is probably the material of choice for projects if corrosion is not a concern, and the maximum temperature will not exceed 425°C (800°F). Above this temperature, a variety of alloy steels and other materials may be required to provide sufficient long-term integrity. Most organic chemicals are not corrosive to steel, and gases and vapors are also not corrosive to steels in most cases. However, acids, molte…
