ASK NDE’s TECHNICAL EXPERTS - September

NDE’s technical team receives enquiries on a daily basis that require input from a stainless steel specialist.

Q: Which stainless steel grade would you recommend for
SOat 400°C? This is for a fan for process air
recirculation, with some dust present in the air. If parts
are static, can we use the 316 grade or will there still
be issues with the corrosion protection?

Interesting Applications

LEAN DUPLEX STAINLESS STEEL CCD TANKS IN THE MINING INDUSTRY

NDE led the innovation some 20 years ago, using LDX2101 stainless steel for counter current decantation (CCD) tanks in the mining industry.

* cheaper material than the original rubber-lined,
  painted mild steel
* stronger
* lighter material therefore lighter components including 
  rake arms
* cheaper operation because a smaller motor and gearbox 
   and less electrical power to operate
* minimised maintenance

CCD Tanks in LDX2101 stainless steel give :

  1. a better technical result
  2. a first off cost saving
  3. a running cost saving

DID You know?

STRESS CORROSION CRACKING is one of several types of corrosion which may occur in stainless steel under certain circumstance - and which, in some cases, can be prevented or minimised   

It occurs mainly in austenitic stainless steels and not in ferritic or duplexes.                                              

It needs three simultaneous conditions to occur:

  1. Stress (from fabrication)
  2. Chlorides of any concentration
  3. Temperature 50°C or higher

NDE’s technical team offers advice on grade selection and design criteria to ensure the successful application of stainless steels, preventing corrosion and optimising performance.
