New Metal Cored, Stainless Steel Electrodes Resist Corrosion in Industrial Applications
Fort Loramie, OH - Select-Arc, Inc. has introduced two gas-shielded, metal cored, austenitic stainless steel electrodes that are designed to resist intergranular corrosion in a wide variety of industrial welding applications.
SelectAlloy 317L-C is composed of 19.5% chromium, 14% nickel, 3.5% molybdenum and a maximum carbon content of 0.03%. The presence of a high level of molybdenum improves resistance to pitting and provides increased creep resistance. Because SelectAlloy 317L-C is designed to handle solutions of sulfuric acid and sulfur bearing gases, this electrode is utilized in the pulp and paper industry as well as in food and pharmaceutical processing equipment.
SelectAlloy 347-C is well suited for making small butt, lap and fillet welds on thin material at elevated travel speeds. This wire is utilized to weld Types 321, 347 and 348 stainless steel. The columbium in SelectAlloy 347-C reduces chromium carbide precipitation and delivers augmented corrosion resistance in the welding of furnace parts, pressure vessels, chemical tanks and automotive parts.
Both electrodes are available in .045" and 1/16" diameters.
