Metal corrosion has an annual global cost of $2.5 trillion!
The industries affected include Oil and Gas, offshore, marine, nuclear energy, chemical production and more.
Corrosion causes risk of costly downtime. Components manufactured from basic steel materials increase maintenance difficulties.
Corrosion, such as pitting, surface and uniform can lead to cracks, metal deformity and severe weakness.
The solution for companies that work within highly corrosive environments is to invest in super-alloy components.
Super alloys are a group of metals that hold superior corrosion resistance, strength and hardness.
Where standard metals for pipe and tube components fail, super alloys will thrive, significantly reducing the risk of corrosion failureover a long period of time.
Benefits Of Investing In Corrosion Resistant Fittings
- Reduce maintenance costs
- Save money long-term through smart investment
- Eliminate risk of corrosion failure
- Increase longevity
- Boost productivity and safety
- Resist oxidisation
- Resist corrosion
- Improve strength at high temperatures
Pipe Fitting Corrosion
Tubing, Valves and Other
Corrosion appears in common apparatuses of these industries, such as control valves, instrumentation tubing and pipe fittings.
When tubing begins to corrode, the interior of a tube can form blockages, it can also, overtime cause holes to appear. Leakages from tubing and pipe are potentially life-threatening, especially when the material within the tube is crude oils, gases or acids.
Corrosion on compression fittings, such as elbow turns, end caps and adapters, can cause rigidness and serious strength reduction. It is essential that pipe fittings and tube are required to withstand corrosive inner materials at both high temperatures and pressures – which is why high-performance alloys, such as Incoloy 825 are used for manufacture.
Why Anti-Corrosion Coatings
Are A Disappointment
It is common practice to invest in this solution, rather than use protective coatings on already existing inferior materials such as copper or basic steels.
Corrosion resistant coatings are used as a barrier between a fitting and the hazardous material or environment, not as a permanent solution. This is due to the well-known failure of coatings, which can be caused by chemical reactions between the paint and metallic surface or blistering and flaking several months into usage.
Coatings may be ideal for a short-term solution, but may not be readily available to tackle higher pressures and temperatures as a super alloy could. The coating is guaranteed to wear down gradually after usage, whereas pipe and fittings manufactured from high-quality metals will last for over 15 years.
