Stainless steel for chemical process industry
The chemical process industry and pharmaceutical industry stretch over a wide range of applications and demanding environments. Common for all is that you need a material with a trustworthy performance throughout the expected lifetime of your equipment. Outokumpu offers a wide range of stainless steel grades with perfect corrosion resistance and mechanical properties. Outokumpu stainless steel is an ideal material choice to chemical process industry equipment.
Outokumpu has a hundred years of experience in serving the chemical process industry with corrosion resistance information.
The Outokumpu portfolio with a wide range of product ranges stretches from the Moda range with a modest corrosion resistance, via Core and Supra all the way to the Ultra range with stainless steels and nickel-based alloys suitable for the most severe corrosive conditions. The Forta duplex range combines a high mechanical strange with a selection of fit for purpose corrosion resistance levels, and the Therma range can withstand corrosion and oxidation in temperatures from 550°C up to 1100-1200°C and this in combination of a good creep resistance.
Depending on the chemicals involved Outokumpu Corrosion tables can guide you to a suitable material selection when knowing your temperature and chemical environment including contaminants.
Corrosion resistant stainless steels and alloys from Outokumpu are successfully used for all types of tanks and pressure vessel applications within the chemical process industry:
