Technical

Working together with global Stainless Steel Materials’ experts, engineers and companies involved in the manufacture or use of stainless steels/CRAs, we provide here a selection of original, non-commercial articles. These in-depth technical papers are written or co-written by operating companies, describing commercially viable new technologies and case histories of successful applications, backed by data. Topics include tubes & pipes, cladding, offshore, chemical process industry, welding & fabrication, 13Cr stainless steels, titanium, nickel alloys, pulp & paper and duplex stainless steels.
If you wish to include your technical articles in our magazine, email newsletter or on our website please feel free to contact Joanne McIntyre.

Austenitic stainless steel grades for high-temperature applications

Stainless steel grade 310 is the most popular heat and creep resistant steel used in super-heater tubing. The grade is popular for heat exchanger applications due to its corrosion and heat resistance.

Radiation strengthens NiCr alloys

Researchers at Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) have discovered that exposure to proton irradiation can strengthen and extend certain alloys’ lifetime, including nickel-chromium.

Discovery and volatility: Nickel’s ongoing impact on the stainless steel industry

Nickel prices are volatile – they always have been. But recent fluctuations have led the steel industry on a rollercoaster ride of peaks and troughs.

International alliance – independent of steelworks

The official launch of EURANIMI - the European Association of Non-Integrated Steel, Stainless Steel and Metal Importers, Distributors, Traders and Processors – took place in January.

Experimenting with welding superduplex without filler metal

The main reason for using lean duplex is its significant resistance to chloride stress corrosion cracking because of its dual phases.

Implementation of QWR 4.0 Quality Wirerod mill at ABS

With the implementation of QWR 4.0 Quality Wirerod mill at ABS, Danieli has redefined the identity of the rolling mills, with innovative equipment and process approach for operational performance and environment sustainability, guaranteeing the highest product quality standards.

TotalEnergies signs an MOU with Novatek

TotalEnergies and Novatek have signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) to jointly work on sustainable reductions of the CO₂ emission

Stainless steel production increases by 24.7% – 14.5 million

The International Stainless Steel Forum (ISSF) has released figures for the first three months of 2021.

Lean duplex: a good alternative to 304/L & 316/L?

The main reason for using lean duplex is its significant resistance to chloride stress corrosion cracking because of its dual phases.
