Avoiding Stress Corrosion Cracking of Carbon Low Alloy and Austenitic Stainless Steels in Chloride and Caustic Environments
This Maintenance Best Practice Guide is concerned with the performance of carbon and low alloy steels, and austenitic stainless steels, in chloride and caustic containing fluids. Those factors which are known to promote stress corrosion cracking are outlined, and service charts defining environmental boundaries for stress corrosion cracking in caustic and chloride containing fluids are presented.
General guidance on the avoidance of stress corrosion cracking is provided.
