The Corrosion of Duplex Stainless Steels: A Practical Guide for Engineers

This is a print-on-demand (POD) book that will be produced just for you in 2-5 days after your order. It should arrive at your door in about one to two weeks. However, due to supply chain and logistic challenges currently affecting the industry, it may take longer. Allow three weeks for international orders.

In The Corrosion of Duplex Stainless Steels, author Roger Francis reviews various duplex alloy compositions, mechanical properties, and design stresses for vessels and pipes to various codes. He also covers the basics of welding duplex alloys, both to themselves and to other alloys, and their corrosion resistance.

Of most importance, the book looks at a variety of types of corrosion that may affect DSSs in service, presenting the available data and, in some cases, how to avoid problems.

Duplex stainless steels (DSSs) were first invented in the early part of the 20th century, but it was not until the 1970s and 80s, with the introduction of argon oxygen decarburization (AOD) melting and the recognition of the benefits of nitrogen additions, that DSSs became attractive for widespread industrial use. 

DSSs have been adopted by many industries to varying degrees. They are the workhorse corrosion resistant alloy (CRA) of the oil and gas industry, and are also widely used in the chemical and process industries for their SCC and corrosion resistance. Superduplex stainless steel has become the main alloy for piping, pumps, and valves in seawater reverse osmosis (SWRO) desalination plants, because of its resistance to crevice corrosion in seawater.

In this book, Roger Francis reviews various duplex alloy compositions, mechanical properties, and design stresses for vessels and pipes to various codes. He also covers the basics of welding duplex alloys, both to themselves and to other alloys, and their corrosion resistance.

Of most importance, the book looks at a variety of types of corrosion that may affect DSSs in service, presenting the available data and, in some cases, how to avoid problems.

Forms of Corrosion - Recognition and Prevention, 2nd Edition

Product Number: 37626-POD
ISBN: 978-1-57590-354-5
Author: Dale McIntyre
$200.00

This is a print-on-demand (POD) book that will be produced just for you in 2-5 days after your order. It should arrive at your door in about one to two weeks. However, due to supply chain and logistic challenges currently affecting the industry, it may take longer. Allow three weeks for international orders.

The Second Edition of this classic reference book adds updated commentary and many new case studies. Mechanisms and numerous scenarios illustrate general, localized and galvanic corrosion, environmental cracking, erosion-corrosion, cavitation, fretting, intergranular attack, dealloying, and high-temperature corrosion.

The purpose of this book is to introduce the eight forms of corrosion and illustrate the forms’ macro- and microappearances as they occur in conventional engineering metals and alloys. Diagrams are occasionally employed to illustrate mechanisms, but photographs and photomicrographs are employed whenever possible, together with case histories, to aid understanding of the situations discussed and the means taken to ameliorate them.

This book presents detailed corrosion mechanisms and case histories of a wide variety of corrosion problems from chemical plants, oil production and refining, utilities, pipelines, transport by air, land, and sea, electronics, and the preservation of historical artifacts. The uses of advanced analytical techniques such as electron microscopy, metallography, energy-dispersive X-ray spectroscopy, Aüger spectroscopy and electrochemical techniques are presented to illustrate their utility in corrosion failure investigations.
