New Stainless Steel Electrodes Provide Enhanced Corrosion Resistance
Fort Loramie, OH - Select-Arc, Inc. has introduced two gas-shielded, flux cored, austenitic stainless steel electrodes that are designed to resist corrosion under severe conditions.
SelectAlloy 317L is composed of 19.5% chromium, 13% nickel, 3.5% molybdenum and a maximum carbon content of 0.04%. The higher level of molybdenum improves resistance to pitting and provides increased creep resistance. This electrode's low carbon content minimizes carbide precipitation and makes it more resistant to intergranular corrosion.
SelectAlloy 317L is an excellent electrode for applications involving solutions of sulfuric acid and sulfur bearing gases. Utilized to weld Types 316 and 317 stainless, this wire finds wide application in the pulp and paper industry as well as in food and pharmaceutical processing equipment.
SelectAlloy 347 has a nominal weld composition of 19.50% chromium, 10% nickel and 0.6% columbium. The columbium content reduces chromium carbide precipitation and makes the weld metal more resistant to intergranular corrosion. This electrode is used to weld Types 321, 347 and 348 stainless steels in applications such as furnace parts, pressure vessels, chemical tanks and automotive parts.
Both electrodes are available in .045" and 1/16" diameters.
