LOW-TEMPERATURE AND CRYOGENIC MATERIALS
LOW-TEMPERATURE AND CRYOGENIC MATERIALSSelecting metals and alloys for low-temperature and cryogenic applications is a complex subject that involves many considerations, including special material testing and fabrication issues. It should only be done by a subject matter expert familiar with the applicable codes and standards. The information that follows is a short introduction to the subject.As temperatures fall, carbon and low-alloy steels show a sharp reduction in ductility and resistance to fracture. This reduction can occur over a narrow temperature range. The temperature at which this reduction occurs varies by grade and heat. In general, this becomes a consideration whenever the temperature falls below 24°C (75°F). The generally accepte…
