Boasting outstanding corrosion resistance as a result of its 22% chromium and 3% molybdenum content, Duplex 2205 stainless steel pipe is well-known for its stamina in environments subjected to stress corrosion cracking and pitting. Typically used in areas like oil and gas, food processing, chemical processing, paper and pulp and marine, the pipe is a highly desired alloy steel option.
Duplex 2205 stainless steel pipe consists of two types of crystalline structures: face-centered cubic (austenitic) and body-centered cubic (ferritic). This duality results in an equilibrium where both phases are mutually soluble and contribute to the creation of a composite microstructure. This amalgamation offers a unique balance of remarkable strength and desirable ductility.
Constructed from Duplex 2205 stainless steel, piping is a popular choice within a plethora of industries, largely due to its superior protection against corrosion. This steel makes it both difficult for pitting and crevice corrosion to occur in chloride-filled environments, and (provides) resistance to stress corrosion cracking. This why Duplex 2205 stainless steel pipes are commonplace in the oil and gas, chemical processing, food processing, paper and pulp and marine spaces.
