Stainless steel is increasingly popular for large scale sculptures and public installations around the world. Companies that specialize in the creation of such pieces are both pioneers in the techniques required and promoters of this versatile material. Sino Sculpture is one such company that was created to produce works almost exclusively in stainless steels.
Succinic acid is a dicarboxylic acid with the chemical formula (CH2)2(CO2H)2. The name derives from Latin succinum, meaning amber. Nickel-containing stainless steel is playing an essential role in the production of innovative ‘green’ succinic acid which is highly corrosive to low alloy and carbon steel.
The Society of Piping Engineers and Designers (SPED) is an international organization promoting excellence and quality in piping design and engineering through networking, training, and certification programs. Its headquarters is located in Houston, Texas with chapters in Houston, Calgary, Perth, Louisville, Ontario and a worldwide community of individual members.
Overhauling a steam turbine as part of a planned maintenance schedule is a regular task for many large-scale industrial enterprises that depend on these units to generate electrical power. However, for one pulp manufacturing plant in Eastern Canada, the refurbishment of its 25 MW Stal Laval radial steam turbine required expert engineering to resolve the vibration issue – the first time this repair has been completed in North America.
In the past, a severe shortcoming of renewables has been that they are intermittent: the power stays on only as long as the wind blows or the sun shines; if the wind blows too hard, the turbines must stop turning in order not to overload the grid. Newer and more efficient storage techniques are changing the equation. It is now possible to store excess power and tap into it during periods of power shortage. This article outlines some of the many technologies employed.
In this research paper super duplex stainless steel SAF 2507 has been selected to investigate the intergranular corrosion resistance of friction welded SDSS SAF 2507 joints. The joints were welded at three different rotational speeds: 700 rpm, 1080 rpm and 1600 rpm and three different friction pressures: 40 Mpa, 69 Mpa and 78 Mpa.
Amidst a buzz of excitement and a cloud of golden balloons the tenth jubilee edition of SSW conference & exhibition kicked off from 28 to 30 November in Maastricht, the Netherlands. With a record number of attendees, a vibrant mix of familiar friends and new faces celebrated two decades of successfully bringing together the global CRA community. However the main focus was firmly on the future, judging where the industry is heading and helping exhibitors and delegates alike.
With time fast ticking away to the tenth Stainless Steel World Conference in November there’s already a buzz of anticipation about the topics that will be extensively discussed during the presentations and workshops. SSWN interviewed Catherine Houska about her keynote speech which is very encouragingly titled: Resiliency and sustainability create opportunities for stainless steel.
India overtook Japan to become the world’s second largest stainless steel producer after China, in 2016, according to data released by the International Stainless Steel Forum (ISSF). The country’s output rose to 3.324 million tons for the fiscal year 2016, compared to 3.093 million tons in Japan, showing an impressive compound annual growth rate of over 9%.
The non-corrosive and rust-resistant properties of stainless steel have made it essential in the preparation, delivery and storage of food. Stainless steel is a standard in modern restaurant kitchens and for other utensils in food applications since it is easily cleaned and dried. The surface of stainless steel resists oxidation at high temperatures and it tolerates very low temperatures as well.
