Effective Use of Duplex Stainless Steel in Storage Tanks and Pressure Vessels

This webinar will elaborate on the advantages of selecting duplex stainless steels for large storage tanks or pressure vessels compared to both the more commonly used austenitic stainless steels, type 304 and 316, and carbon steels. The great combination of high mechanical strength and durability can potentially provide a more economical design. This can be realized by enhancing the structural efficiency which reduces the material consumption and shortens the fabrication time when thinner plates are assembled and no protective coatings are applied. Moreover, higher durability reduces the need for costly maintenance and repair work which facilitates a more reliable and long-lasting operation. Nevertheless, there are some considerations associated with the use of duplex stainless steels such as the more limited temperature range and the importance of being aware of how important material properties are affected by the different steps of the fabrication process. Thus, both opportunities and challenges will be addressed.
