Understanding Industrial Equipment and Our Manufacturing Legacy

I'm Sandra Adams, a blogger and enthusiast of many eclectic targets, including pottery and industrial equipment and supplies. I've traced my family tree as far back as I can go and there is not one moment where my family hasn't been involved in manufacturing. My dad worked as a mechanic repairing industrial machinery and if it wasn't for me, he wouldn't have anyone to pass down his knowledge to. I've always wanted to know what my dad was up to, so I'd ask him what he did everyday. I've always been really curious and this has lead me to develop a really strong understanding of industrial equipment. My love for industrial equipment hasn't waned and now I feel like sharing this knowledge with others. I've created this blog for this exact purpose.

Can Your Industrial Processes Benefit From Alloy 20 Piping?


Resistance to corrosion and high level strength are attributes many industries require of piping used in their production processes. In some processes, high resistance to acids is essential for sanitary production. Other processes may require a superb strength in pipe to allow high level corrosives to flow daily through them without leakage incidents. Learn more about how Alloy 20 piping can benefit your company's production and profits.

Nickel Alloy Supports Integrity And Resistance

Alloy 20 piping is a combination of stainless steel and nickel alloy. Stainless steel is made up of iron and chromium, two metals offering high level tensile strength. Nickel is an excellent alloy metal that promotes acidic resistance and works well in both high and low temperatures. Due to nickel's unique versatility, the benefits are great when combined with iron and chromium to form Alloy 20 piping. If your production depends on acidic fluids, using Alloy 20 piping can provide benefits of faster production and durability you can count on for the long term.

Iron Supports Specific Resistance To Sulfuric Acid

Sulfuric acid is used in many industrial settings, from vat cleaning in food processing involving pickling to the cleaning processes used petroleum refineries. When Allow 20 piping is used for the transference of sulfuric acid, you can count on its iron content to help prevent specific corrosive damage from sulfuric acid. If your production processes include the use of sulfuric acid, using Alloy 20 piping for carrying it is a smart. Avoiding costly slow down and halts in your production means using material that offer the highest level of durability and strength.

Chromium's Role In Stainless Steel

Steel easily oxidizes, rusts, when exposed to the elements, especially water. While its strength is a much sought after attribute, oxidation can causes serious problems in some industries like those involving food processing or petroleum. The addition of chromium to steel creates stainless steel, chromium providing the benefits of extreme protection from rusting. For this reason, stainless steel is the most popular choice for industries requiring the cleanest possible environment for its daily processes.

Alloy 20 Piping And Your Specific Industrial Needs

Alloy 20 piping can be welded with little carbide condensation, a benefit for company owners considering in-house installation. If your needs require a metal like Alloy 20, but piping is not the form you can use, sheets, bars and plates are available as well. If you worry about the side effects of chloride cracking in your day to day production processes, you can rest easy knowing you can count on Alloy 20 metal to resist it. Learn more about how you can reap the benefits of greater, long term production in your business by contacting an Alloy 20 pipe manufacturer (such as James Duva Inc) today.
