Hastelloy Piping from TITAN Metal Fabricators possesses strong resistance against localized corrosion, cracking, and stress corrosion. Material specification of Hastelloy Pipe is a long-term and cost-effective solution of damage avoidance.
The fluids used in chemical processing are extremely corrosive, and the materials of construction for the processing equipment require very special consideration. Without correct specification, conditions will rapidly decline, leading to unit repair or replacement and expensive manufacturing downtime.
The following information is provided as background on Hastelloy, the alloy characteristics, strengths and how consideration of a Hastelloy Piping System could be the answer to prevent corrosion in your application.
Life Cycle Benefits of a Hastelloy Piping System
While initial purchase cost is higher than some other materials (graphite, ceramic, PTFE or glass), Hastelloy Piping Systems will be highly cost effective over the equipment life cycle. Properly maintained, TITAN’s Hastelloy Pipe can operate for decades, making Hastelloy a very economical choice.
Hastelloy Piping can:
- Deliver many years of economical service life
- Eliminate expensive downtime due to equipment failure
- Provide outstanding corrosion resistance
- Produce high heat transfer efficiency
- Accommodate high steam pressure
