3cr12 stainless steel

You might be interested in 3cr12 stainless steel if you're looking for stainless steel products with a high resistance to stress corrosion cracking. This kind of steel is employed in numerous applications, including piping, valves, pumps, and others. It is also renowned for its excellent formability, high tensile strength, and ductility. It also has a high level of resistance to wet sliding abrasion.

Typical applications

If you need a corrosion-resistant stainless steel, you should consider grade 3CR12 duplex stainless steel. This ferritic chromium-containing alloy offers resistance to corrosive attack and excellent formability. It has been used in a variety of industries, such as mining, food processing, and chemical storage.

In the food processing industry, this alloy is used for food equipment, including sample systems conveyors, cane carrying conveyors, and diffuser feed slat conveyors. It has also been used for wall cladding and roofing.

The corrosion resistance of grade 3CR12 stainless steel is limited, though. For chloride-containing water, it provides minimal resistance to pitting corrosion. However, it performs well in wet abrasion applications. A critical pitting temperature diagram is a commonly produced document that assesses a material's vulnerability to pitting corrosion.

The aim of the study was to test and investigate the welding of 3CR12 stainless steel. The results revealed that this alloy is compatible with different filler metals and welding processes.

It was concluded that the tensile strength of welded joints increased over the parent metal. This was attributed to the fracture of tensile specimens located in the parent-metal zone.

Several welding parameters are influenced by the type of joint, the thickness of the base material and the welding position. These parameters should be matched to ensure maximum corrosion resistance. They are listed in Table 2-2. Generally, welding with ferritic alloys should be done in sections less than 6mm thick.

To weld 3CR12, a filler metal such as AISI 308L is advisable. This is a low carbon steel that produces high quality welds. This material is pre-qualified for welding by AS 1554.6.
