Each industry faces different challenges and therefore has different demands from its materials. Greater value, increased corrosion resistance and lower lifetime costs are all important.

All industries, whether it be Pulp & Paper, Desalination or metal working, are affected by the environment and the processes involved.  Each factor has an influence on the choice of material required for the job.  For example, within Desalination, engineers are faced with liquids which are high in chlorides, and high temperatures.  When combined, these factors require more advanced materials so that they can withstand increasingly corrosive environments for longer periods of time.

Stainless Steel, particularly Duplex, is well suited to overcome the high corrosion rates of these industries.  Stainless steel can also offer lower lifetime costs, greater scope in fabrication and can contribute towards environmental sustainability.

Use of stainless steel has provided substantial benefits to numerous industries including:

  • Food and drink manufacture
  • Pulp and paper
  • Desalination
  • Water and wastewater treatment
  • Manufacturing industries
