STAINLESS STEELS
STAINLESS STEELSStainless steel is typically defined as a ferrous alloy containing at least 10 percent (weight percent) chromium. Since their discovery in the early part of the 20th century, stainless steels have become primary construction materials for process vessels, heat exchangers, storage tanks, and process piping. This growth has been driven by the need for corrosion-resistant materials in the chemical, petrochemical, power generation, pulp and paper, pharmaceutical, and food processing industries.Today there are literally hundreds of different stainless steel alloys or “grades,” and the choice of a grade for any specific application is based on the required level of corrosion resistance, strength, and toughness as well as other factors such as fabrication requi…
