DID You know?
CREVICE Corrosion 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 in areas where crevices are formed:
• Between flanges
• Under bolt heads
• Under sediments on the bottom of tanks
• In/around badly designed joints
It can often be eliminated through design.
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.
